Usually sends me to the bathroom. I always called that song the "set-killer".

No offense intended. To each his own. Like you said, it is all good. Just surprised, that's all.

Dark Star

Sorry but Dark Star is not my trip, it is okay because the Dead sang it but I never got in to it. I perfer Trucking, China Doll, St. John 's Band and up lifting songs like that. Never could get into Dark Star. But it is what it is and it is all good.

It pains me to even imagine

It pains me to even imagine a world where Dark Star would be used as an excuse to pee.

Even the bad ones, um, er, less than stellar ones, were so ripe with "potential" that to walk away would be unbearable.

Wow. Shows how subjective this whole ride is.

Really?

Timing a bathroom break to Dark Star? Really? Really? No, you are just being sarcastic, right?

I have to agree with Dark Star

If i had a call of nature I would go to the bathroom when they started Dark Star because it was so long, they still would be playing it when I got back.

Brooklyn Peach-> You hit me

Brooklyn Peach-> You hit me in the gut! China Doll...aw. No matter how bad I had to pee, I may have stayed and suffered the consequences if it was between heading to the restroom or hearing a China Doll. Black Peter, I'll grant you, though the last two verses always redeemed that one for me, closing solo or not.

But China Doll...a tear is shed..which I guess is good cause that means even more water!

Ship of Fools? I love that

Ship of Fools? I love that song! Maybe it was the mention of all that water...anyway,for me a good break from dancing song would be China Doll, another slow one. I could see Black Peter being a good choice, too.
