Interesting how Lady Willpower is played so often (was going to be a single at one point, wasn’t it?) yet It’s Over doesn’t get played at all, despite it being one of the best songs he’s ever recorded (in his opinion). And said single for the latter song was/is so hard to come by in physical form. Why? You’d think a recording he holds in such high regard would be easier to get ahold of, right?

Because it is an extremely difficult song to sing and he's probably scared he'll f*** it up.

Haven't the time to edit it.
Should have the band introduction and fluffing his lyrics on Love Is On Its Way Out.
FWD.

Thank you, thank you, thank you FWD!! 🥰 I thoroughly enjoyed it! Alain looked so happy and a bit shy, especially after the applause went on for a bit longer than everyone else’s. If I were there, I would’ve given a proper piercing scream! 🤣 Loved it, loved it, thank you again!! Now I’m off to watch the rest of it!

That'll never happen. It's been very obvious to me that he favors performing songs that are easy on his voice. I think that's what ultimately determines the songs he selects to sing above anything else. This has been the case for years now, ever since his throat issues years back. Just look at these setlists from this residency, half the songs are practically spoken word. Look at any setlists from the past few years, you'll see it's true. He hasn't sang anything vocally challenging live in quite some time.

Musings from the food court while sober myself up (mall culture ftw!):

So…I’m a little slow on the uptake bc I’ve been doing baseball stuff. Alain giving Boz a break? I f***ing love that. Morrissey was egging us on to invade during the penultimate sing bc he knew the fig machine would be employed as a security measure for the ultimate song. I wish i had the balls to go up but there were like four security guards watching us and I’d hate to be booted on the scant chance he came back for a second encore. Had a blast tonight. He’s always in tune. It blows my mind. Super bummed i can’t hang around for tomorrow but I’m one of the poors and doing this baseball thing. RAD NIGHT!!!!!! Wooo hoooo hoooooooooo!!!

if i hadn’t bought the hoodie, the keychain and the poster i might’ve been able to afford the closing night lol no worries. Super proud of him.

I don't think anyone could really say that the songs are "practically spoken word" and that certainly goes for Lady Willpower. It's the kind of song that you have to belt out.

I doubt he chose something like Never Had No One Ever to be easy on his voice either, as it requires a fair display of vocal gymnastics.

There are probably a few songs in the canon that he wouldn't want to damage himself over, but that's only natural.

I watched a poor guy puke all over the place. I hope he’s okay he didn’t look good. He was by himself.

agree,the only song i can think of that he struggles with is playboys,but i think his voice can handle just about any of his songs,the end of plea to guilty is hardly easy to sing.

Was it the portly Mexican fellow in the 200 level who kept screaming "Sing Your Life"? He was knocking back the drinks after every song. Poor feller.
