I Will Make You Moan

Yeah, I had a couple "least favorites", but topping the list was Brent's ballad that usually made me want to take myself home.

Sphenolithus (not verified)
Urine

People went to the 'john' during shows? I simply pee-ed my pants (I'm joking).

It was painful to watch Garcia fade away over the last couple of years. The music suffered, but I do miss it dearly! As for songs I could miss without feeling too bad (going to the 'john'):

Bobby

"May the four winds blow you safely home"

I love Bobby but he did have some clunkers there towards the end. Seems like every time I saw them they opened with Picasso Moon, lol. As for Jerry, Days Between was as bad as it got. Liberty grew on me a little but not until late.

Victim or the Crime

Yeah with all due respect to Bobby, it was Victim or the Crime. Did nothing for me. Even Corrina had it's moments but Victim signaled the rush for the john.

bathroom break

"May the four winds blow you safely home"

There were definately a few songs to choose from but one that sticks out is Victim or the Crime. As my friends and I used to say, "we are the victims, and this song is a crime!!!"

red rooster

I always found Red Roosterto be a downer, so that was the perfect time for excretion.

'walking blues'

tj crowley it seem that the bobby tunes take awhile to get appreciative of. easy answers still doesn't grab me..saturday nite wore it's love out..truckin can takes it's toll.and eternity didn't last that long for me...there's no bad song and these would not push me out the door as each moment is one to be experienced but would you find me talking during 'dew' or (soory pomo 1) a 'dark star'. found it always rude that some one would be talking during these moments 'man did you hear 'em do 'dw' last week?' 'outa site!'. despite my lack of total acceptance of previous mentioned tunes, each one takes on a new demension so walking out was rare..oh wait! drumz..yeah...10-100 (necessary break) time check out www.esu.edu/wess fried-days 6pm - midnite (e.s.t) for the sounds and vibes of the 60's/70's w/ a splash of the 50's and todays sounds...'six strings...more or Lesh' grateful dead hour (davdi gans production) 10pm (e.s.t.)

When to roam

I liked to take the time to experience the show and the scene en route to answering nature's call so I aimed for a long song. Also a wordy song 'cause there was less likely to be astonishing and surprising jamming, and the sung words were hard to hear in many halls. So the perfect bathroom break tune was Desolation Row. ("The riot squad is restless, they need someplace to go.." OK off we go) And no matter how many changes I went through on that seemingly long side trip I was amazed to always get back to the seat before the tune was over. Desolation would often clock in at over ten minutes.

Heresy

Realizing I am about to commit heresy, upon hearing the first notes of Stella Blue I always took my break. to me, the only good thing about Stella Blue was that it usually meant a Sugar Magnolia would follow. Space a close second.
