"I'm Still Here / Everybody Says Don't / Don't Rain On My Parade" medley from the comeback concert. I love this one — the lyrics are rewritten to be all about HER. When I was 14, I didn't understand it, but my mom explained it all to me. The "I kept my nose to spite my face" is my favorite. I also love when someone uses one word to bridge a gap between songs in a medley or concert as in "Everybody says don't, everybody says — Don't tell me not to live, just sit and putter!" (There's also a great example of this motif later in the concert when she says something like, "But these days isn't it hard to remember that we're all just ... Peeeeople ...." I love that kinda thing.)
