I'm with all of you on the above comments. The shouting thing definitely kills me as well. I think it's mostly due to him playing/singing to the first-time/one-time concertgoers. Or, it could be for other reasons, I just dont know. If I had to pick one song that is/was my go-to bathroom break song, it would be Cheeseburger. Song just doesn't do it for me. Someone mentioned Come Monday above and made a great point. That is technically a ballad, and why on earth he gets to shouting some of it is beyond me.

I am a huge fan of the rarities, or even the songs that get into the setlists every few years (Cowboy in the Jungle, Havana Daydreamin, etc.); and have always wished some of the "shouting" songs that we have mentioned would not be included in the regular setlists. However, I guess I should consider us lucky, in that many of the shows with rarities have been captured on live releases (Anguilla, Encores, etc.), not to mention the RM recordings.

One I have grown to hate hearing live is A Pirate Looks at Forty.

I got nothing against the song in general, but it needs a break from the live set.

Theirs so many others that can be plugged in to take it's place, got to resurrect some lesser known/obscure
tunes. I'm a fan of hearing those. ;)

Wow! I did not expect someone to say Pirate, but, I can see what you mean. I feel like the song sort of loses its meaning (not autobiographical, but about his old friend from Key West - Phil Clark) at the large venues/shows.

A shake up of the set list would be good. Remove the shout songs and some that could use a break. He's changed some of them but after a while...

Cheeseburger
APLAF
CILCIA
SOASOAS
BEG
Southern Cross
Last Mango In Paris
Jolly Mon Sing
It's Five O'Clock Somewhere
OPH

For some reason I can still tolerate Volcano, Fins and Margaritaville. Not sure why. I might change my mind on that.

How long has he been saying 'But not yet' in OPH? 20 years now?

Done with it. I'll listen to the LP version but any live versions, forget it.

The new semi-acoustic version of Southern Cross they have been playing this tour is a step in the right direction.

BEG needs to go, like 8 years ago.
