Seems like "Liking" posts is broken. So, I'll say I like it!

Much appreciated!

Al performed My Own Eyes at one of the Maui Food Bank benefit shows, but it was with the house band for that event (including members of Alice Cooper's band, I believe).

Yep, which is why I had to put in quotations that Al announced that it was being performed for the first time. I'm assuming he just meant as a full band, but nonetheless, he considered it a "never-been-performed" song.

Smoke On the Water- Poodle Hat tour. abridged

Wipeout (4 keys at once) - Touring With Scissors Albuquerque venue

Accordion Boogie- Listed as "accordion improv" during Studio 360 Interview so it might be a different arrangement. Also this song goes by multiple names. Recorded versions tend to call it Magnante Boogie. I'm not entirely sure but we can at least count on it being called Accordion Boogie in Al's childhood lesson books hence why he leans towards calling it that.

Last Train To Clarksville- Poodle Hat tour. abridged

The Elements- although likely not under the "Weird Al" Yankovic name just yet, Al performed this for his campus open mic nights and someone has a soundboard recording of it. A snippet was used for an episode of the VH1 show Driven

Aqualung- I don't know yet what part of the song was used but back in '87 on a show for The Monkees tour Al and the band performed the "snots is running down his nose" line, calling it their Jethro Tull Imitation.

Neither performances to be confused with that one time Al sang the line "watching as the frilly panties run" on an episode of VH1 I Love The 70s

Magic Carpet Ride- Al sang this on an episode of Happy Hour. It's abridged and with different players however.

Wow! Good stuff! This will all add a nice layer of trivia to the spreadsheet.

Glad to be of service. Also re: Aqualung

Elvis and Catradohtem would list it as "Jethro Tull Imitation" on the Songography back when it was just a brief Monkees tour gag. I don't know what the VIP Setlist calls it yet. Your discretion.

I'm pretty busy for the next week or so. After that, I hope to finish the spreadsheet. I will add numbers for each song's position in the setlist for all shows. And I will audit each show to check for mistakes. A lot of people have helped with it. I'll try to add a list of usernames in the sheet somewhere, but I'm sure I'll miss some. Just wanted to post here that I'm not finished yet, FWIW.
