Bathroom Break Song

Chris

It wasn't really my bathroom song but the song that made me roll my eyes after about the first 10 times was "Miracle". Seems like out of 81 shows I must have heard "Miracle" 25-30 times. It got to the point that all of my friends would turn to me for a reaction as soon as the first few cords began. Particularly brutal when coming out of drums-space..........

Relieved

I know I sound like a snob, and I am sorry, but after reading this topic, I am relieved that I stopped going to live shows around 1983. I am glad that I never experienced a show where I wanted to escape the music. Believe me, I was occasionally disappointed (especially by an ill-timed Bobby song), but never wanted to miss a note or a beat. Even my least favorite Dead shows rank among the best times I had at any concert. Again, I ask the question: did the music deteriorate so badly?

Victim

"Victim" is obviously getting no love at all in this discussion. This being said/written, I'd escape to relieve myself during this song as well. Unfortunately most of the new songs were good reasons for bathroom breaks (minus Garcia's new tunes). Am I being too critical?

or, as one guy used to say back in the day

'What ever happened to his precious self-control?'

I was thinking about that one just the other day. Patience ran out on the junkie pretty fast at my house.

Victim

Never had a chance to see Jerry and the Boys, however, I believe I would run for the exit if they played "Victim or the Crime". I would run or at least curl up on the floor with my blankie. It was a crime to write that song and we are all victims.

It's not that I have any particular aversion to the song mind you, but it became a joke between my friend Sue and myself. Every (and I mean every) show that we went to they played that song. We just got sick of hearing it. And despite my posted shows there were more than 3, way more. Anyway, JB.G was a good excuse to dance all the wat to the loo!

Pee Pee Song

I make it a point to give everything a chance, but nothing makes my blatter shink like "I Know You Rider". It's a good song, but a little redundent.

I fought the song

During 93 and 94 I fought the Law made me run like the wind, It was usually a closer but I ran anytime it was played, What I wouldn't give to hear dear old Jerry sing it one more time.

Have a Grateful Day
