Has anyone noticed a slight change in “Mike’s Song”?  For whatever reason, the band has decided to play the D, E, F progression which signals the usual segue into “I am Hydrogen” or “Simple” is now twice as long.  I wonder who presented this idea and why.  Although a small change, it throws me off and seems unnecessary, but maybe this is the way the song will be from now on. I will have to add it to my Segues and Keys post.  I included one version of “Mike’s” from 1992 and one from 2009, but check any version before ’09 and ’10 and they only play that part twice, compared to four times now.
