The one song I ALWAYS bump, no matter the show is........


Dancin'..........God do I loathe this tune. Just a hoky sing-a-long that slays me right from the jump.

Mine - CC Rider. ugh.
So, the disco Dancin or every incarnation?

I actually like Dancin. The disco version had some cool funky jams, and gotta love 5/11/78 when they are out of the minds. The 69-70 versions were titanic.

Only considering songs that were always heavy in the rotation...Peggy-O.

Actually, I think the disco versions are better than the early ones, but it is still an auto bump for me...

I don't bump a lot if I'm deliberately listening to an entire show. But I would tend to agree with Kochman's bumps, except for BIODTL, which I like as an old-time rock-and-roller (and besides, it's over in less than 3 mins!). I also bump Brent songs pretty frequently -- and not just We Can Run and IWTYH -- although those are both pretty much auto-bumps for me. I also bump most Vince songs -- especially Samba, but also LLLLWTGH. I don't bump Corrina much anymore. Easy Answers sometimes.

Dancin is one of the worst songs in their arsenal. Especially the disco versions with that crappy hahahaha guitar bridge. It kind of makes me puke!

Looks Like a Bathroom Break is another automatic

I Will Make You Sit Down out of Drums just is a mood killer. Kinda like when homeless people follow you down the street asking for change. You know in a few short minutes it will be over but you feel a little guilty. It is after all a lullaby for a kid, but it still sucks!

Sunrise. You can pick out pieces of your own vomit and make better lyrics than this shumltz. We Can Run is very similar as well.

Pretty much all the newer songs sucked ass. I know ,I know, I'm just an old school hater who doesn't understand the extrememly intricate nuances of such classics as Easy Ansewers, Eternety, So Many Roads, Lazy River Road errrrrrrrrrr...(Black Muddy River part deux) Wave to the Wind, Broken Arrow or for the love of God why didn't someone put a tanqulizer dart in Garcia when he would mumble his way through Matilda?????????

Those songs sucked........BAD!!! At the show it was like a kick to the balls. At home I luckily can fast forward through them.

And look Rob! I didn't even get to that one tune that starts with a S and ends in an a .

You Ain't Woman Enough as done by Donna is rather mediocre compared to the original by Loretta Lynn.

We Can Run was the subject of general bitching by us during the last listening party I ateended, it's the lyrics that really kill that song, they are just so bad.

I don't mind Sunrise, really.. They played it so rarely. I sort of like it as an intro to Terrapin. A little cheesy I guess... I also like From the Heart of Me and Tomorrow is Forever.

Here's another Barlow classic. I can't decide which is the worst verse from Blow Away. Probably this one..

You fancy me to be the master of your feelings
You barely bruise me with your looks to kill
Though I admit we were sometimes brutal in our dealings
I never held you against your will

Really? Never held her against her will? Wow, that's really considerate of you.

You can add me to the list of Skippin' in the Streets....A few from '78 are OK, the early ones [CENSORED] and the 80's are the worst.

Sunrise has a cool riff, From the Heart of Me has nothing of value.

Death Don't is hard to listen to...usually skip.

Around and Around I usually skip, even though when I actually give it a chance it catches me off guard and I enjoy it, but it's so easy to skip due to it being the cue to close the 2nd set.

I skip post hiatus TOOs pretty frequently, can't really say why.

Rooster and C.C. are easy to skip, but another example of pleasant surpises when I give them a chance.

Box of Rain...no thanks.

Fast FOTDs are boring and usually skipped.

Tons of Steel...just no.

I'm not a fan of bumping because the magic pops up 'in the strangest of places'.

Having said that, I always feel that there's unlikely to be much magic in most Vince songs, so they tend to get skipped Shocked

Some songs I maybe don't like but never skip because they are rare. Let Me Sing Your Blues Away is a good example.

Well disco was not rock n' roll, was it? A lot of things that the Grateful Dead did were not "rock n' roll," thank god.

Aside from all the Dancin' bashing... I mean, sure, its not a great song (at any point, post-hiatus definitely better than the pre-hiatus messes), but lowest point ever? Come on...

The thing I have been ruminating on is this statement though...

I will agree this is generally rather mediocre Bob... but so what? Bob's work in El Paso is probably the least important of any member of the band. All he really does is add rhythm with his voice. The true hilite is Jerry noodling along behind him, more and more intensely as the song develops. Beautiful song.

Comments on Dancin and El Paso.
Dancin is a classic motown song - Martha and the Vandellas. IMO the lyrics, while certainly not "deep" are certainly celebratory. Not much different from OMSN or Good Lovin. Yes, the "disco" treatment was unfortunate, but it did turn into a funky jam vehicle. Do you haters of this tune also hate Stranger and Shakedown??? I like the old school versions and the 84-87 versions. Not sure why this gets so much hate.

El Paso without Cowboy Bob singing/crooning would not be right. He does Marty Robbins justice and injects energy into the tune (except on 11/3/84 Shocked ). Not my "go to" song but an enjoyable ditty. And sometimes this tune could really catch fire. Keith, Phil and Jerry on the early versions could lock in quite nicely.

they almost got a very cool drippiness going with it in '76 and then dumped it again to never return..

I believe that all the pre-76's sucked really.. AoxomoxoA's version had so much potential and they just never got it live

I'd add
Lost Sailor > Saint
Anything Vince sang ( of course I listen to so few Vinnnies that it's not hard to skip it)

many of the above get bumped quite frequently..

I'll add 12/31/83 and 12/31/85. I love the bobby version.]

Songs I always skip:

Man Smart( Woman Smarter): Just a boring song, especially when its in the second set. It almost brings 10/12/83 to a screeching halt.

Stella Blue

Post coma To Lay Me Down: Jerrys voice needs to be and good shape for it to work, and those vocal cords weren't to good in 88'

Any Donna, Vince and Brent song EXCEPT: Easy To Love You and Far From Me.

The usual suspects include:

El Paso
Day Job
Sunrise
Drums/Space (usually, but not always)
Promised Land and BIODTL (when listening to '73, '74 shows - need to get to the goods in those long shows)

My listening time is so fragmented these days (short commute, hectic job, kids, house, etc) I often just cut to the beef of the 2nd set or other highlights. It's rare I get to listen to a whole show uninterrupted.

Oh I love those song! Just everything else he made I thought was pretty mediocre. The only exception is We Can From 10/9/89. The lyrics arn't bad and Jerry really on top of his game, especially at the 3 minuet mark

Some more songs I usually skip:

A lot of Big Rivers, mainly in 73' when they played it every other show.

Row Jimmy: the only version I like is 6/28/74. That show can turn a song I dislike into gold!

Here are two songs that I know I'm going to get some [CENSORED] for. Tennessee Jed and Sugaree. Good songs, I just really don't feel like either of them have any diversity that makes me want to here a new one every show.

Agree about Sugaree. Back when I was seeing shows with regularity, b'tween Garcia'a band performing it and the Dead it was time for my pee break. Song I usually bump...Old days..Midnight Hour, Viola Lee Blues (never understood the attraction to it) Most Good Lovin's old and new. Post hiatus...Dancin' in the street, Most FOD's...A lot but not all NFA. Any Beatles cover was just painful.

Woah, we just had a MAJOR disconnect here.
We Can Run... the lyrics "aren't bad"... I can say no further.

I throw my trash in your back yard
Getting you not to notice is not so hard
You're so busy with your guns and all of your excuses to use them


Wouldn't that be a hell of an excuse to "use them"? What, his neighbor's so busy shooting cans that he doesn't notice somebody dumping a load of trash in his yard??!?

Peggy-O? Death Don't? TOO????
Wow...

Here's some of mine:
Rooster
CC Rider (these often have good Jerry solos but too bored by the time they come around to enjoy them)
Any Brent song
Any Phil singing ordeal
Any Vince song
Any Donna song
Any Pigpen song (that's right, mothafuckahhs!!!)
Any newer Bobby song
Depending on the day, any first set Bobby song

Hahaha i knew you were going to say that Koch. I'd never say to my self "hey, im in the mood for some We Can Run." But if im listening to Hampton 89' I wont skip the song. I heard another version and didn't like it at all.

I always try to listen to show from start to finish and for the most part I do. There are at times, times when I bump lost sailer, saimtof circumstance. I don't know why but for some reason I just can't get into those songs. I read things on this blog and others that if I give the songs a chance I will see how wonderful they are. I have tried on numerous occasions but I just don't dig them and I'm not sure why. Of course you can't really go by me, because as I got older I have come to appreciate Donna, and I know just reading that it must make some of you sick!!

My listening time is so fragmented these days (short commute, hectic job, kids, house, etc) I often just cut to the beef of the 2nd set or other highlights. It's rare I get to listen to a whole show uninterrupted.


Why did it take till 3/4 of the way through this thread for somebody to mention the lamest Dead song ever "Day Job"?
I am not a purist and tried not to bail on anything even if I didn't think it was that great. After all, they ARE my favorite band in the whole world. However, if I am just listening to a show and this piece o' crap comes on I skip it as fast as I would any Bruce Springsteen song. Ugh! Seeing it live over and over and over again in the 80's it took all my willpower to stay there. It usually at least warrented a bath room trip. LOL Definitely a show killer. Good example - A kickin 4/20 show from 1984 at the Philadelphia Civic Center and they end with this. Killjoy!

I always thought the Job was OK. Definitely filler material, I mean, but not offensively bad, just sort of dull. And, Jerry sang it, which made it better than a good percentage of Dead songs. I could sit through Jerry singing a lame song.

That's not to say I don't usually skip it, of course.

But I'd say I skip almost every first set almost all of time before the late '70s.

As someone who was there and actively dislikes Day Job... what is it specifically? Was it the message? The tune itself, musically speaking?

When I hear it, I don't mind it at all... way better than Don't Ease Me In, for example... but that's just my opinion.
