Foggy G, "The Songs That Were Played," We're Only In It For The Touring

1978: A nice, mellow little treat. Essentially performed as on "Joe's Garage", minus the "conversation" part that occurs between Joe and Sy Borg. Ike sings the lyrics, and Petey gets a chance to compose a very reflective, casually paced keyboard solo. One of the great examples in Frank's work of how the lyrics are saying one thing (sex, sex, sex), and the music is saying something completely different (isn't this beautiful? close your eyes and relax). The Halloween shows present us with yet more treats when this tune is performed as an instrumental on the 28th, and as a group vocal (to make up for the missing Ike) on the 29th.

Mike Keneally (1988 Was A Million Years Ago)

[Boston, February 19, 1988] At rehearsal we performed "Tengo Na Minchia Tanta", "T'Mershi Duween", "Why Don'tcha Do Me Right", "Brown Moses", "Sinister Footwear", "Sy Borg" and "Token Of My Extreme". "Sy Borg" was one we had never played before, and fortunately I knew the chords, so we were able to do a reasonable version of it and give Frank the overriding feeling that it was a doable song, which is good because it's a very nice song.
