I agree, and if they could get a fiddle to add to the sound it would be even more awesome!

I agree it was one of the highlights of the night and I'm sure Russell said he'd enjoyed singing it so much it would definately be in the ultimate encore.

GOOFING OFF is a fantastic song, an anthem, combining true musical wealth with profound, sarcastic lyrics, an ideal representative of the Mael brothers talent. The climactic Russian-style guitar solo is among the very best I've ever heard. I waited 31 years to hear it live and I was there too a week ago, they did such an amazing job. I *must* hear it again live too, I'm returning to London on the 13th. But I won't vote for it yet, as I hope this song has enough votes already. -- Can we see the current ranking at all?

As Russell himself voted for Goofing Off it might be pretty safe to assume it will be included. It's his party!

I wonder what Ron's choice would be. And the rest of the band for that matter?

Russ's vote went to The Decline And Fall Of Me....also he wants to sing A Song That Sings Itself...and as he said himself it's HIS show...but I'll bet Ron will have a few words with him about that....lol

Yes, sorry Alex you are quite right about Russell's vote - but I'm sure I remember him saying something encouraging about wanting Goofing Off in the encore list.

Yup - I think it's fair to suggest that this one is in the setlist.

A guy in the crowd shouted out for Goofing Off. Russel said it's in... THIS IS NOT A DEMOCRACY.

Got to agree with Russell that these two songs went down a storm on the night.
