So what bits of other songs has Brian played in his solo? :

Three Blind Mice (London 1975)
Danny Boy (Dublin 1984) - I think: could be wrong.
Silent Night (London 1980?)
Barcelona (Barcelona 2008)

and...?

I believe he did bits of a traditional Japanese song, "Sakura, Sakura" during his solo on one (or more?) of the 2005 Japanese shows.

Just to be clear, I'm not talking about bits of covers that the band have played or little impros between songs, what I mean is melodies that Brian has incorporated into his long 'Brighton Rock' type solo.

So regarding I Feel Fine, was it played as part of Brian's solo or just as part of an improv between songs?

Also, what is kalinka?

Please feel free to list more if you know them.

Except I Feel Fine in 1986, the other three that I mentioned was during Brian´s solo...

Kalinka is a traditional russian tune

The T. Stooges was also par of Brian´s solo in earls court

Sakura, Sakura... another traditional tune (I forget that one!, amazing in Super Live dvd)

Concierto de aranjuez (during Brian´s solo in Madrid last time)

I dont remember anymore now..

Silent Night was in 1979, at the Hammersmith Odeon, in London.

During the whole 2005/06 tour, he also played parts of Chinese Torture. ;)

Classical until Miles Davis had his way with it... gotta love Sketches In Spain.

This concert? I don't hear it. Then again, I'm a bit deaf.

On this forum, certainly.  There are a couple others...

But in the wider world, they're around!
