    Re: Muhammad in TTTS for WTSF: I always thought it was because I Feel the Earth Move is obviously a cover and she didn’t want to have to pay licensing fees to release it on the DVD. As for how they go together, thematically, Jesus ascending, i.e., taking to the sky? Putting those two together never felt jarring to me, but I can’t articulate the why, exactly. Maybe because it’s already had so many different bridges, she throws all sorts of things in there, and she must’ve known that people would go nuts to have a rarity pop up. But I do like the muscle memory theory too!

    I support Alexander in his quest to get her to play it with the full intro on the next tour. It IS an underdog song, but it was always a favorite of mine on Pele. I’ve never seen it live, but really don’t like the way it sounded in 2014, I want a piano-only version!
