Hopefully that's an older version?
I've only seen Steven Tyler sing live versions of things recently and he seems to have lost it. Or maybe I'm thrown off by a 69 year old man with long hair with feathers/highlights in it and the pencil thin mustache?
Well, the movie came out in 1993.

Every song from Billy Joel's Songs in the Attic. Especially Miami (2017). Kind of forgot about the title of this song. hmmm.....

Have we had this one before? Who the hell knows, lets do it.
I'm sticking to a live album version not, songs I've seen live. Wanna do songs you've seen live, go for it.

Cheap Trick: I Want You to Want Me
Alice in Chains: Rooster (MTV unplugged)
Jackson Browne: Loadout
The Doors: Roadhouse Blues

Most of AC/DC Live vs their studio albums
Wow, that was the first one that came to my mind as well. We must have great taste. Studio version, meh. Live version, megahit.

So many amazing youtube Talking Heads live songs. Too bad the band became so dysfunctional, such great music.
Yeah, they were better live across the board and the Remain In Light tour concert footage is all just amazing. What always gets me is how good Tina Weymouth is since she picked up the bass while in college with Chris Frantz.
