    Default Sammy Songs that Didn't Get Played Live

    We all had fun saying what we wanted VH with Dave to play this last tour.

    What were some of you favorite Sammy songs that didn't get played live either ever or enough for your liking?

    Some of mine:

    Mine All Mine (I know they played this cerca OU812, but I always thought they should have played it later on, and even in 2004)

    Feels So Good - Did they ever play this live? I'm not wild about the studio track, but it would have been interesting to hear live...I think like Finish What You Started, the band would have a tendency to "heavy" songs like this up...I think it could have been a lot of fun live.

    Pleasure Dome with singing

    5150...There is no excuse why this song shouldn't have been played at every VH with Sammy concert that ever went down on record...hell, Sammy should be playing it live - solo...C'mon Vick, practice!

    I'm pretty VH opened with "Mine All Mine" when I saw them back on October 7, 1995 at the Hyundai Pavilion in Devore, CA.

    They opened with Mine All Mine at the Clarkston, MI Pine Knob Music Theatre show during the Right Here Right Now tour, June of 1993 as well.

    This was supposed to say, "I'm pretty SURE VH opened with "Mine All Mine" when I saw them back on October 7, 1995 at the Hyundai Pavilion in Devore, CA.

    BTW, this was the same venue where VH played the US Festival back in 1983.

    I have a very high quality version of Mine All Mine from 1993, and it was semi-regular in 1995.

    Wanted to hear 7th Seal or FSG during at least one of the 4 VH shows I'd attended over my lifetime.

    I think they should have kept 5150 in the loop and Summer Nights. Hell, they should have played Love Walks In and Good Enough on every tour.

    I'll second this.
    Isn't there a thread somewhere where we assembled the perfect setlist?

    Summer Nights and 5150 should've been played after the 'OU812' tour. Great songs!!

    Good Enough should have been played more after the first tour, then it was. Great song to open a show.

    Good Enough is a good one.

    Earlier posts...I had no idea that they were playing Mine All Mine in 95...that is a huge surprise to me.

    I used to have a CD single..I think it had Love Walks In from Right Here Right Now, Mine All Mine, and maybe Crossing Over, I can't remember...but the live version of Mine All Mine was really good...maybe it was from the Japan show that was video'd?

    So did they ever play FSG live, ever?

    Anyone know?

    It would be a cool song for Sam to resurrect solo...if Jesse came back and played keys...
    I just think it would sound better live...you know how Finish What You Started, Love Walks In, and When It's Love always came across a little more heavy in the live versions? yea...like that.

    All the shows I saw on Balance they played Mine all mine and that turned into Al's solo.

    99.9% sure the answer is no.

    Would LOVE to see that one done live, as well as "Take Me Back" and yes, "Inside".

    I might be the only one around here that likes "Inside", but it could be so heavy and greasy live...
