I believe that the song after "Green Eyed Lady" was The Sonics' "Shot Down"

jumba

congrats Ken, and thanks for the setlist. (and thanks of course to FMU and YLT for the tunes!)

looks like you're right, 'Slow Down' is the Feelies: http://www.tt.net/coyote/projects/8673.html

and 'Critical List' is by The Fleshtones:

Okay, here's a second draft of the 2008 Yo La Tengo WFMU all-request marathon setlist. This was definitely not an easy year to complete the list. Thanks to metafilter poster Kowalski for identifying the Sonics song in the second set and the Hypnolovewheel song in the fourth set. Thanks to WFMU Beware of the Blog poster jumba for identifying the Fleshtones song in the second set. Thanks especially to Ira Kaplan for taking mercy upon me and filling in the remaining blanks. Any further help in correcting any remaining errors would be welcome.
