He may respond by saying, "you'd have to ask Rubén (he's the keyboard player!)"
Yeah, that sort of answer would be a bit pointless for the mystical Bermuda only comes once every few months. Hasn't even been here since last year!
aaaa

Here is my list of all backing tracks for the show:

Tacky (Backing Vocals in Chorus, Falsetto parts in the Chorus)
Lame Claim to Fame (None)
Now That's What I Call Polka (Brass Instruments/Whistles, Some vocals during the end of Get Lucky)
Perform This Way (Most of the instrumental such as synths and other sounds, and the backing vocals during all choruses)
Dare To Be Stupid (The keyboard, Bermuda plays the electronic drum sounds off his drum pad)
Fat (All snare hits, the "cha" that always play, sound effects)
First World Problems (Amanda Palmers vocals, the word "Amazon", and the breathing at the end)
Foil (Backing vocals during chorus)
Smells Like Nirvana (Gargling, animal noises, tuba)

Medley:
Party in the CIA (Very light backing vocals)
Pentiums (Woman saying "It's All About The Pentiums, Baby")
Handy (Instrumental, Chorus)
Bedrock Anthem (None)
Another One Rides the Bus (None)
Ode to a Superhero (None)
Gump (None)
Inactive (Some drum and bass sounds, chorus backing vocals)
eBay (None)
Canadian Idiot (None)

Wanna B Ur Lovr (Backing Vocals)
Acoustic Medley (None)
White and Nerdy (Instrumental aside from Rubens piano parts, and Jon's drum parts)
Word Crimes (Drum Programming, Backing Vocals running throughout most of song)
Amish Paradise (Choir during Chorus)
Cell Phones (None)
The Saga Begins (None)
Yoda (A litte bit of sequencing in the Yoda Chant, such as a light "Eep Op Eep" in the background so they keep tempo)
Canadian Idiot is not part of the medley :bad:

Indeed it is. It's the full song but it is connected directly so it is part of the medley.
Love and peace.

I'm not having this argument again. I consider it to be separate because it's a full song.

It doesn't matter what you consider it. If you asked Weird Al if it's part of the medley, he'd say it is, and it will reflect that when the set list is posted after the tour on the touring page. Als opinion is or word is canon on this site.

Full songs can be part of medleys. Especially when they're the finale of the medley.
Love and peace.

Having recently binged on all the albums, I'd say 1999 - 2006 was probably his best vocal period.
