my problem is that when i sing out a line or two i can't help but dance a little...so there i am at work and were just chit-chatting about where we are from then my co worker said i was born in arizona..well i couldn't help but to ask rasied in a lions den?..so i start tapping my feet and bobing my head next thing i know everyone is looking at me as if i had two heads...i just can't sit still when i hear good tunes even when it is in my head...
let your life proceed by its own design
I was in a meeting last week at work, and someone said the phrase "no scour, no dry" a couple of times in a row. I'm not sure exactly what possessed me, but I started singing "No scour no dry" to the tune of "No Woman No Cry"....subvocally, I thought, but I guess maybe louder than I thought. My boss looked at me for a second and said, "Bob Marley, right?"
We all had a good laugh...and I was impressed that I was singing well enough for someone, anyone to recognize the melody.
Garcia meets Elvis (Costello, that is)
I am the same way. I recite a daily GD lyric in my everyday talk,
its just a way of life. I think my head is full of GD music so when I speak it just comes out sometimes. My kids think Im crazy, some says I am some says I ain't hehe see ... well I may be but happy too! Love you rider!! If you get confused listen to the music play!
Okay, so I Fawked up the quote, but I think I still got my point across ~ HELLS BELLS !!!
I tend to say some off the wall things, as you've all gathered I'm sure ,but.....
Do ya'll ever feel like you belt out a GD lyric, or line daily ?? It just comes to mind so often for me & I think : Man some folks in the Dead family would sure know where I was coming from.
Even if it's cheezy nonsense.
It's mainly The Dead & Arlo for me, when I said " TYPICAL CASE OF AMERICAN CASE OF BLIND JUSTICE" to my ( then) new boss at the Courthouse, I felt like an idiot, but I HAD to say it :)
thanks, man. cool article.

as a tangential aside, here are a few clips of Weir and Garcia talking aboout using accoustic and venues for them in a press conference they did before the radio City Music Hall run:

stuff you may not have known, but are now glad you read.
The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.
