So today I went to the UHF screening in Providence and during the meet and greet I asked al about squeeze box. He said Medium rarities does, in fact have a 23rd track tho he is unable to disclose it at the moment. All he could tell me was that it's a cover of someone else's song.

So...maybe it's not Robot Dance. I mean, it depends what he means by a "cover". Technically he didn't write Robot Dance, but I assume a cover would refer to a more established song. Thanks for the information!

Al's in Charlie And The Chocolate Factory at the Hollywood Bowl this fall. Maybe this is the Oompa Loompa song? It's technically from a movie, but also a live event? I know the Hollywood Bowl doesn't allow recording (and SqueezeBox is already "locked and loaded"), but maybe Al recorded a cover of the song because of the show?

Wait. So the other day on Facebook Bermuda asked for entrance music suggestions and RangerBob suggested I Saw Her Standing There but Bermuda said he couldn't use that one because of reasons he couldn't say. Probably nothing but....

Entrance music suggestions for what?

And that would be awesome. Are there any upcoming Beatles projects where a cover of that might appear?

I was going to ask the same question. I'm assuming entrance music for the 2018 tour, because I guess they'll have something play instead of the flipping channels intro. Why not enter midway through Fun Zone? :P

When you enter the theatre there is already music playing. Jon picks that music

Nope, that was nothing to do with the box set.

My guess is that it is one of the straight covers Al wants to perform next tour.

My vote still stands with “What Is Life” by George Harrison. It fits the description of the clues dropped so far... I’ve been holding out on buying the track from the George Fest album on iTunes in case it shows up here.
