As in past years, I kept score at home this year during Yo La Tengo's All-Request Marathon set. This time, I felt a little superflouous because Faye and Gaylord posted a playlist right here while the band was performing. But out of habit and also in hopes that I can add a little value with my stab at i.d.'ing songs played during the closing medley (which Faye and Gaylord didn't attempt), I am once again posting my tentative results here. I am grateful to YLT for another terrific set, and especially for playing my request during the second set.

Ira Kaplan graciously offered a few corrections to my original tentative setlist from Yo La Tengo's 2013 WFMU Marathon performance. Here is the corrected list, which I think should be authoritative:

Desmond Dekker - Israelites (Intensified medley)
Boredoms - Acid Police
David Bowie – Heroes (Tara Key’s request)

Richard & Linda Thompson - I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight
The Kinks - This Time Tomorrow
Neil Diamond - Thank the Lord For The Night Time
Drifters / Dion & The Belmonts / Beach Boys (Leiber/Stoller) - Ruby Baby
The Who - Disguises

Hüsker Dü - Pink Turns To Blue
Can - Yoo Doo Right (Medley: Pere Ubu - Heart of Darkness, Superchunk - Driveway to Driveway, DEVO - Be Stiff, ? & The Mysterians - 96 Tears, Heartbreakers - I Wanna Be Loved, Nilsson - Gotta Get Up, Ramones- I Wanna Be Well, Nena - 99 Luftballons, Journey - Midnight Train/Don't Stop Believing, ELO - Telephone Line, The Smiths - This Charming Man, The Damned - New Rose, Bob & Doug MacKenzie w/ Geddy Lee - Take Off (To The Great White North), Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea, Pixies - This Monkey's Gone To Heaven, Michael Jackson - Man in the Mirror, Nazz - Open My Eyes, The Smiths - Ask, Paul Simon - Red Rubber Ball, The Cyrkle - Red Rubber Ball, Rush - Fly By Night, Michael Bolton - How Can We Be Lovers, Interpol - Leif Erickson).

Highlights IMHO: David Bowie - Heroes, Sonics - Psycho, Hypnolovewheel - What's Going On, The Kinks - Better Things, and of course my request: Eno & The Winkies - I'll Come Running (Totaled)

Bonus points: Ira made a good-faith effort to sing at least the chorus of "Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand" in the (un)original German!

Shout outs to guests Martin Wenk--vocals on 99 Luftballoons, bells on Ridin' in My Car and occasional percussion; Schneider TM's horn solo during the medley; and Abe Davis, handclaps on I Wanna Hold Your Hand.
