Let's see

Mr. Robinsons Quango - Way more powerful
Globe Alone - Holy shit Dave is nuts!!
Pyongyang - Those live drums!!
Go Out - Works so much better
Bank Holiday, I Broadcast, BLUREMI, Jubilee - made for playing live
Tracy Jacks - Hard to listen to the studio version after Glasto 09
There's no other way - That damn riff! Love how nobody could figure it out Grahamless TT era
The Puritan - Sounds a whole lot better
Trimm Trabb - Just amazing
I'm just a Killer - seems to flow alot better and it gives the song new life
Bugman - Everyone gets to show off a bit, shorter, more compact and seems great fun to play

Im sure there's more, loads of Graham solo stuff too :)

This is coming from someone who liked Everyday Robots a lot but Lonely Press Play was much improved live.

The Good, the Bad and the Queen sounds much better live for me, i hate Danger Mouse production on this.
Well, i find Blur a better live band than a studio band, they lost much of their energy on studio, various songs sounds better live in my opinion.
But here some exemples of songs MUCH better live for me:
She's So High
There's no Other Way
Chemical World
Bank Holliday
Trouble in Message Center
This is a Low - i really love the studio version, but when Graham does that solo live, MAAAN
Supa Shoppa
Stereotypes
M.O.R.
Trailerpark - the Glastonbury 98 version is 11/10
Trimm Trabb
B.L.U.R.E.M.I - Damon and Graham shouting instead of Donald Duck
On The Way to the Club, Caravan, Gene by Gene and others from Think Tank
Go Out
I Broadcast - SO MUCH BETTER LIVE
Ong Ong

I remember a rumour that it was cut due to time pressure from the label. Whether that is true or not, no idea.

there some songs in the record with a abrupt end too like Pirate Jet and Empire Ants. And Sweepstakes have a little introduction by Mos Def when played live. Maybe some changes by their label.
