No idea how likely/unlikely this is, but I really want to see Like a Surgeon. I've never seen him do it live, and it's been well over a decade since he has.

Also, is Perform This Way likely to be cut? I could see it moving to the medley and Al could put on some ridiculous hat while he sings it. Hope it's not gone for good though.

While Perform This Way wasn't/isn't huge, I don't know that it will actually be cut. Al could easily switch around or change the costumes.

A while back, Al mentioned something about the possibility of Like A Surgeon coming back, but it's been a couple of years. Also, there has literally never been a case where Al has brought back a parody that was previous cut from the set list and not put it in the medley.

Hoping any of those make it in!
I'll Be Mellow would be superb. Any of them, really. Biggest Ball is a bit 'long' (6-min or so) though so not sure, but I'd like that.

Do you guys think he should, or will take out Wanna B Ur Lovr? They've been doing it a long time and even though its amazing I'd love to see One More Minute make a return. Would also save just a little time in the set, not like it matters much.
What a racket they're makin', Jack, they keep me up at night playin' their electric guitars!!

Wanna B Ur Lovr will always be better than One More Minute. One More Minute was just the placeholder until Wanna B Ur Lovr came along. :wub:

For sure! I still need Al to sit in my lap and sing to me. I've had the first line sung to me, the entire end sung to me, the Venus de Milo line, and even the "ooh-hoo-ooh" line. That song isn't going anywhere!
4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

"How's Problem Child doing?" - 7/12/11

So awesome!

While I agree WBUL is not going anywhere for the time being, I can see Al coming up with a new song of this ilk sometime in the next couple of years that could replace it.
NTTH and Twineball are a bit long and I am not sure we would see those. He could do two classics for the price of one of those. I still think Trigger Happy would be fun!
