It's a classic DMB song, but it's not a personal favorite of mine for some reason.

This does not become apparent until the bass comes in.

The interesting thing about this, to me, is that Dave is aware of this ambiguity and when he's playing it Dave & Tim style he changes the chords so that the verse is clearly built on a D minor chord; without the bassline, the original riff doesn't sound right to him anymore. Listen to how Seek Up on Luther College starts.


very interesting

Like many others, the Red Rocks 95 Seek Up was one of my gateway drugs to DMB. Pure magic in musical form. The amazing thing about hearing that performance and then discovering more DMB is - that particular version of Seek Up is GOOD but there are dozens more that are GREAT.

Are all absolute essential listens for any fan of the song.
Throw 7/24/96 onto that list as well. That's one of my top versions.

I agree, those were awesome. The distortion Jeff used on his intros was different and interesting. The problem with 3.0 versions is Boyd and the lack of a good, climatic outro with him and Dave's wailing. LT 36 for example is a cool version up until that point - it's got an eerie prelude and a more laid back horn intro but totally falls flat when it's Boyd's time to shine.

This is one of the best songs this band has. Its Probably the best opening song as well. Nothing like hearing those notes to start a show.

It hasn't fallen off the cliff in 3.0. While I think the intro is a bit busy these days, its still great.

I agree.

Anyone have any particular stand-out performances over the last 5 or 6 years?

These threads are a perfect way for you to bring back your “Top 10 Lists” again . How long has it been? 10-15 years?

The DDTW Seek Up segue from Riverbend in 2016 was an awesome combo. And they did it again at Deer Creek.

It's in the running. I think CP Two Step is better, but it's up there.

1, yes 100%. And points 2 and 3 I wouldn't go out of my way to argue against.

I'll give you the first two there. Wouldn't be my "best" live track though.

I'm the same way. It never makes my list of top 5 songs, and might not even be top 10 favorites for me.

I'll reluctantly allow the top 5 exclusion, but excluding from your top 10 deserves a

I love how these threads bring out the nostalgic feels

I got Luther in the summer of '99, and fell in love with it. Didn't explore the band much however, until downloading I Did It on napster (which I think the band released for free?). So my first exposure to the band was I Did It, and needless to say.... I fucking hated it and stuck to loving Luther. Fastforward, my first Dave show was 3/22/03 when I was 15 years old. That show blew me away, but that's for another thread

What on earth does this have to do with Seek Up? Well, after 3/22/03 I decided to buy tickets to 9/11/03. I was about 15 rows back stage left, and I will never forget the feeling in my lungs of when Stefan kicked in during the intro. Felt like a mule kick. I was hooked to the band after that, and the rest is history.

I still am a much bigger fan of D&T than anything else, but that SU turned into seeing the band 50+ times and went on to shape high school/college memories for my friends and I for many years afterwards.

That's such a good Seek Up, and I believe still the longest performance of the song I've ever witnessed.

My "favorites" probably vary on the day but I'd put my top 5 as something like Warehouse (definite favorite song), The Dreaming Tree, The Stone, #41, You Never Know

with the next tier including
Minarets, Proudest Monkey, Two Step, The Last Stop, Spoon

For me it’s probably that same run, but from LT3.

I would say that 6.20.97 and 12.8.98 are up there as well. Oh and that Randall’s Island Flecktones version too
