Dream Setlist

Postby Muppetboy09 » Thu Mar 15, 2018 7:58 am

Since we ostensibly know all (or at least most of) the rotating songs for this tour, what would be the perfect setlist in your mind? Let's say an average of 16 songs, not including the medley or encore. Mine would have to be...

Fun Zone
Midnight Star
Buy Me A Condo
Mr. Frump in the Iron Lung
Your Horoscope For Today
Why Does This Always Happen To Me?
Stop Forwarding That Crap To Me
Melanie
Jackson Park Express
The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota
Nature Trail to Hell
UHF
Velvet Elvis
I Remember Larry
Dog Eat Dog
One More Minute

Your setlist is actually really similar to mine. I'd only change a couple of songs, I think.

One of Those Days
Midnight Star
Buy Me A Condo
Mr. Frump in the Iron Lung
Your Horoscope For Today
Why Does This Always Happen To Me?
Party at the Leper Colony
Melanie
Stuck in a Closet with Vanna White
Generic Blues
Nature Trail to Hell
UHF
Velvet Elvis
I Remember Larry
Dog Eat Dog
One More Minute
Acoustic Medley (of songs I'd like to hear but won't)
-Stop Dragging My Car Around
-Toothless People
-Theme from Rocky XIII
-I Want a New Duck
-King of Suede
-My Bologna

Encore:
Moving in Stereo/All Mixed Up
I Love Rocky Road


I know I kind of got away from it towards the end as he hasn't played anything in the medley or encores, but this is what I would love to see. Doesn't hurt to dream, does it?

Super hard but... No particular order. (Went through the spreadsheet but then had to go back and exchange some XD) order they are on the spreadsheet. It was hard leaving some off but... It came down to a mix of ones I've never seen before and ones I have seen once a long time ago, but probably wont see again. (...Well, if he starts doing any of these originals in a regular concert again, I guess OMM would be most likely, but, oh well. XD)

*Counts* I guess I've only seen 5 out of 16, that's not bad.

1. Buy Me A Condo
2. You Don't Love Me Anymore (Saw 2010)
3. Dog Eat Dog
4. One More Minute (Saw 2000)
5. Your Horoscope For Today
6. Traffic Jam
7. Albuquerque (Saw 2007)
8. The Biggest Ball Of Twine In Minnesota
9. Close But No Cigar (Saw 2007)
10. My Baby's In Love With Eddie Vedder (Saw 2000)
11. Midnight Star
12. Truck Drivin Song
13. UHF
14. Young Dumb And Ugly
15. I Remember Larry
16. I Was Only Kidding

Top 5 Songs I HATE leaving off... (And there are waaaay more than 5...)
5. Airline Amy
4. Happy Birthday
3. Mr. Popeil
2. My Own Eyes
1. Don't Download This Song (Was on it, exchanged it for Dog Eat Dog)

As for the encore, It's probably not changing (Except for the occasional Yoda, unless by some chance they decide they can/want to do Hamilton, but I find that unlikely) But I was hoping that for the finalie they would do a different parody every night, and one they havent done in many years, and I was hoping to get the original Like A Surgeon (I saw the TOD version once, but never saw the original) and if not that.... the orginal Headline News.

I dunno if its just me, but I feel like... correct me if I'm wrong but, if Al has stopped doing a parody in full (For a full tour) he's NEVER done it again in full (For a full tour) Right? .... I dunno if its just me, but for some reason I've always felt like IF he ever made an exception to that rule, it would be Like A Surgeon. I'm sure I'm dreaming though.

If your attending four shows I'm sure you will catch all of those ones. They are more likely. Except Genius of course.

Is a "wishlist" okay? This tour seems to be able to do no wrong, and really tonight as long as I see "Mr. Frump" and "Yoda" as the encore (I prefer it to TSB), then I'll be happy....

...BUT if he wants to play any of these I wont object ;)

Wishlist:
-Jackson Park Express
-The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota
-Melanie
-Good Old Days
-Good Enough for Now
-Midnight Star
-Velvet Elvis
-Generic Blues
-UHF
-When I Was Your Age
-Nature Trail to Hell
-Dog Eat Dog
-Young, Dumb & Ugly
-She Never Told Me She Was a Mime
-I'm So Sick of You
-I Remember Larry
-Party at the Leper Colony
-I Was Only Kidding
-Your Horoscope For Today
-Stuck in a Closet With Vanna White
-That Boy Could Dance

...If I could get, like, 5 of these it would make the show even MORE perfect! Can't wait to see if I get any of these tonight!

Seems if you are attending any 2ND show in a specific city, you will get Yoda. If you get to attend two shows in one city you basically get the jackpot! Two completely different sets, how I wish I could see two in one city.
