Are these three songs best

d) depends​ on my mood?

Full disclosure, I love these​ three as songs of civil dusk. I have been blessed enough to listen and watch all three bands perform the songs that way, as can be seen in the​ links​ below.

Are the songs better
a) in their live versions;
b) in their studio versions;
c) it depends on my mood.

Full personal disclosure​ again: to me, I usually like these songs better at night, though my mood upon listening usually takes over. Nothing to brag of, I know! How about you?

I compose morning Episcopal music. The musicians on this page? THANK YOU 👉🏽❤️❤️❤️!!! It is an interesting thing to take a Martin Luther or Ralph Vaughn Williams or Martin Luther hymn and change some of the 1600s harmonies into 2018 harmonies. Hint: fewer diminished​ seconds, more 9ths in place of same. In some keys, as C, the major 3rd is a harsh interval as the E, to allow for equal temperament, stretches toward the perfect 4th, the dreaded F.
