It's about time that they removed the above 10 songs from Jerry's list of songs to sing. I understand the need for GBOF/Shakin' but the rest? Guess I'm a little sad to see that this may be the best we can expect from The Killer as we face the future. Anyway, I'm happy to see him looking good and still touring.

Of the others songs, the two I'd keep are 'You Win Again' and 'Roll Over Beethoven', as both are nearly always great (and they're well known songs for even casual fans). The rest should be substituted for different songs though. He had dozens of country hits from 1968 to 1981, yet 'She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye' is the only one he performs... and why doesn't he ever play 'What'd I Say' these days?

I would agree with Beethoven but You Win Again is being performed horribly most of the time with Jerry clearly off key, especially when he goes in to the chorus ('this old heart of mine..."). Strangely, the other songs he seems to be singing badly is 'Down The Line' and 'Shakin'.
I still believe that all this could probably be sorted out if he used those ear pieces like major performers do these days. The voice is clear and more powerful than it has been in many years but I'm sure he is not hearing himself very well.
So many great hits yet so few being performed anymore.
