I have noticed on a few occasions that during a live performance, the backing tracks got out of sync at a random point in the song. Two examples I can think of (because it is on youtube) is during You Make Me, and Polka Face. For YMM, they started out fine, but about a minute into the song, they all of a sudden were 30 seconds behind. Kinda the same scenerio for the polka. Right before "I Kissed a Girl", the tracks of the horns as well as Al saying "tonight" in a deep voice were delayed. In that instance, I noticed you signaling to backstage to cut the tracks, but when Al caught up, you told them to keep it rolling. How does this happen? I always thought the backing tracks were a single file of sounds, but these videos make it seem as if each sound is its very own cue. Sorry for the long question!
