Interesting thread, but yeah, I don't think anything Post-BS would even come close to the Top 20 at all. Top 50? MAYBE. Even then, I'm not sure. My list is pretty similar to everyone else's. The '04 songs are closest to making it, and might have if they were properly finished but the way they are now, no chance they break in.

The 90s output is not sacrosanct.

It's lovely to see You Never Know in so many lists.

It is, mostly, but there are exceptions to every rule.

not a bad song, but when you really talk about the cream of the crop, is that a top 5 or 10 or even 20 song?
I did my list based on the songs that I personally love and choose to listen to when i want to go through DMB, or things that excite me at shows. I think a lot of the jaded "nothing after LWS/BS" argument is just tired at this point considering its been 16 years and more than half of the bands lifetime.

Granted, I should have thrown Typical on my list but it still wouldn't have been in my top 20 because I don't think I've actually pulled up that song randomly to listen to in probably a decade, only if its in a tape or a show I'm at. I would go brain imploding levels of excited to hear the Sugar Will line start up at a show whereas I would just go "oooh Typical thats a nice one".

Ants bores me to death and I know that's some kind of sacrilegious thing but after seeing it at 25/60 shows plus probably half of the tapes I've listened to since the days of mailing blanks out I'm just over it. Grey Street & DDTW are in the same boat of seeing the same old titties every single day and just not really caring anymore. I would take trash pile songs like Stand Up over any of those three just because I havent had them beaten into me relentlessly year after year.

I think that might also be why Jimi Thing is probably in my bottom 20, I would legitimately rather hear Angel at this point because it would be such a comical thing after 17 years of not seeing it live.

This is all exactly right. That's why in the thread title I made sure to write (2018 edition), because what excited me in, say, 2000, may not excite me anymore in 2018 the way some other songs do.

Two Step, for example, is a great song, but there are about 30 or 40 songs that I listen to more and thus enjoy more in 2018 than Two Step. DDTW used to be one of my five favorite songs. Same with Grey Street. These days, at a show, they're a great opportunity for me to get a beer because I know everyone else will be glued to their seat. It's not that they're "bad," I've just "been there, done that" so many times that my attention shifts.

The 04 Sugar Wills are easily among my favorites by DMB. The song doesn’t meander at all. It has a mostly set structure that transitions into some of their best jamming.

It's such an amazing groove. Not to sound a bit pretentious, but it's sort of mesmerizing and easy to fall into.

I love the first time it was played, hauntingly beautiful for being in its rawest form while still having the structure that kept getting refined.

Sugar Will is one of their best songs period to a point that its criminal to have never made an album cut, its one of the "deep cuts" that I play people as an example of why this band isn't just Ants Marching/Crash/Satellite/Grey Street/DDTW etc.

Listen to the Virginia in the Rain studio track. Sugar Will would be even more beautiful.

My list is going to be pretty much 2000 and before, plus the 04 songs. That doesn't mean I don't like some of the newer stuff, but I will always connect more to the original sound of DMB.

This is pretty hard. I had a list of about 45 songs and had to cut it down. My list is not in any order or ranked, and honestly there was about 5-8 songs I could have had in my top 20 just as easy as others.


1. Ants
2. Warehouse
3. Dancing Nancies
4. Minarets
5. Seek Up
6. Recently
7. BOWA
8. Typical Situation
9. #41
10. Two Step
11. Tripping Billies
12. Say Goodbye
13. Crush
14. The Stone
15. Pig
16. Dreaming Tree
17. Last Stop
18. Grace is Gone
19. JTR
20. Sugar Will

Honorable Mention
Bartender
Crash
Spoon
Crazy-Easy
Grey Street
Granny
WWYS
Hello Again (2004)
Pay for What You Get
You Never Know

The thing I am most surprised about is how many people have Grey Street on their lists. Its been hammered down our throats relentlessly (600 plays) for 18 years and was a shadow of itself when Busted Stuff got done, then it got even more neutered shortly after.

Everything is objective but its just interesting to see that a lot of you don't get immediately disappointed when he has the 12 string out and that song starts up.

Because the rules are "your favorite songs as of 2018" not "your favorite songs as of how they play them in 2018."

Yeah I get that, but most of us have probably gotten it 10-30+ times minimum and I'm sure there are some people who have gotten it 100 times. I don't dislike it but its still surprising to see it polling so highly is all.

Again, its an observation not a dig into peoples opinions or what songs they love.

JTR is absolutely fantastic. But if they played it literally every night and OSW’d the shit out of it, it would fall into the same category as current-day Grey Street: a fantastic song that got murdered.

Bingo. With a 200+ song rotation possible a song getting slammed into the wall at 50% of the shows year after year with an almost non existent guest/variation kills it for me.
