    • The list compilation is songs for RB4, which is why I Saw Her Standing There isn't marked down.
    • Still, 36 (37 with ISHST) is pretty good.
    • I was going to correct "The Jerry Hendrix Experience" until I actually got to that part of the video.
    • Okay, Free Bird is a rare RB3 Rewind. I might change the color for that one.
    • The unhighlighted stuff is a solid USL material. To we go!
  • That was an awesome tour. Got to see both shows of one of the 2 night stops. Completely different set each night.

    I was at the Turlock show, meaning that I got to see his cover of Elton John's Funeral for a Friend. I was stoked because it's probably my favorite Elton John piece. However, I'm kind of jealous that I didn't get to see him perform Peaches or Particle Man. haha

    I would absolutely love for him to release all of his live covers on an album one of these days.

    Got to see both the Particle Man and Viva Las Vegas covers! Before they started Particle Man, Al mentioned that they were about to "cross the nerd streams". LOL

    Also, that tour was my second time to see him perform Albuquerque live. Epic!

    Five of these songs were used in some of his polkas.

    Haha, I thought about this when listening. Didn't occur to me to actually write out the list, but I did think it was interesting how many songs I could remember playing in RB.

    Thank you for this thread @LoopyChew :) I approve.

    I was there for "Refugee (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers)"!
    I spent the first minute of so expecting it to get weird, I wish I had known in advance that he was doing this at all of his shows. But I wanted to go in spoiler-free.

    I was there for Cinnamon Girl. Totally went nuts when he brought out a guitar instead of his accordion. Not knowing the song made it a bit funnier for me since I didn't realize the solo was just one note lol
