Why did they include 'In the Mood' in their live setlist for so long?

The song just doesn't represent who they are AT ALL.

So?? Who cares??

If they preform/preformed it then so be it.

I like that song tbh

There's no need to be dismissive of it.

I am just saying something, is all.

U were the one who made that rude comment, not me.

We each said our own thing, in our own belittling way. It's just a difference of style.

I often wondered why they did it too, but I bet it was just to have a simple RAWK song to end the night on a high energy note.  They did start out as a hard rock band, after all... before all this prog shyte. ;)

It was a single and their last link to the beginning. I guess it became untenable to keep it.   I was never of a fan of it either except when they lampooned toward the end.

Working Man kind of replaced it in the "evening with" shows after the hiatus. Not really a fan of Working Man either (except for the reggae bits) oddly enough.

It's a cracking little song.

I always thought Peart ruined it though by trying to be too busy, when all it needed was a simple groove....
:yes: Some songs, like in the Mood or Working Man, work best when the drummer just stays in the pocket and grooves.

I like the song frankly.

Sure it's a competitively shallow song from their early days but it's good early 70s hard rock.

It's a decent song that's fun to play but a throwaway relative to their catalog. Finding My Way fulfills the same purpose while being a better song.

Following the 2112 tour, Finding My Way was only played RTB, P/G, PeW, AFTK while In The Mood was played on all of those besides RTB. Of course, Finding My Way came back in part as an instrumental on R30, if you'd count that

It was their party song. It was the song they wrote that was kind of the perfect closer. It made you get up and dance and have fun one last time before they left. Plus when they started adding in the jams and stuff later on, it was a great way to end the night. You could tell in videos they loved it every time.
