Analysis and Explanation

Crying Shame was not performed live very often. After being performed at Earls Court on December 19 2004, the song would make a return for just under half of the gigs in April 2005. The band took a rest from playing it after April, skipping it for the seven remaining gigs after the 28th. While Assassin and Exo-Politics were skipped very rarely during this time, Crying Shame was never guaranteed to be performed. It is unknown why the band chose to play Crying Shame at only a few of the 2005 gigs, perhaps they were already aware that the song would likely not make the final cut for the album. The only performances of the song are early performances that are very different to the final release including a vastly changed guitar riff.

The likelihood of Crying Shame being played live again is limited due to its status as a b-side. Few songs from the Black Holes and Revelations era are played live today, further limiting the possibility of a return. In a poll of 500 fans conducted in November 2015, out of a total thirty songs that had not been played since The Resistance era, fans voted Crying Shame as the 22nd most requested song to make a return to setlists.[1]
