Round 1: The Best Rare/Soundcheck Song (CHOOSE THE WORST SONG)

Listening to some of the stand up promos got me thinking about super rare songs and soundchecks so I'd figured it be fun to do a March Madness shoot off. Choose the worst one on the list and we'll narrow it down from there. 2 will be eliminated each week. Let's pass the time discussing these. I'm not including stuff like Spotlight and People, People simply because this is reserved more for songs that were never 100% completed, but rather more of an idea. So in that case it's also leaving off stuff like Cigarette Lit and Monkey Man etc. If I'm missing any major ones let me know.

Had to go with Toy Soldiers. Dressed in Black and HHW are close behind but Toy Soldiers is the sound that got got me hooked on DMB in the late 90s. I love the breeze in the recording and the simplicity. Sparse arrangements aren’t a DMB thing any longer.

Yes you did. Well at least we’ll know the one vote for Toy Soldiers is erroneous.

Am I a bad fan for forgetting how a bunch of these even go?
YouTube videos in the first post would help.

I don't believe I've ever even heard of How Many Nails or Take a Minute.

It's not just you. A few of these I can't remember how they go (like Dressed in Black), and a few I haven't heard at all (like It's All Gravy).

A few of these I can't ever forget though. Light Lift Me Up is good shit

I thought How Many Nails was called How Many More and the lyric was how many knives? Also, wasn't Dressed in Black circulated with a fan-made MIDI backing band or was Follow Me Around by Radiohead or both?

Edit: How Many is on YouTube as both
