Hi, Bermuda

I was wondering... when you guys performed Polka Party on the MTV New Year's Eve special (1986), there was a different ending (Wang Chung [or should I say Weird Al? :wink:] instead of Papa Don't Preach). Was that originally supposed to be on the album version? It sounded really cool, and I just wondered if it got cut from the original version, or if you guys just mixed it up for this special.



Be jealous.

I don't recall that specific instance, but there have been more than a few times where the polka medley has been altered for performances in-between albums/tours, which is exactly where the MTV thing would have fallen.
