Interesting Song Runs (Best/Worst/Random)

Sometimes we don't have the time or desire to listen to an entire DMB show but still want a taste of the flow that live performances offer.

What are some notable song runs - post your favorites, least favorites, a run you'd like to check out, your favorites for an occasion (tailgating, at the beach, in the woods by a fire, etc), favorite run you've seen live, D&T, D&F, etc... Whether it's an opening run of tunes, an encore, or just 3+ songs sprinkled into a main set - I want to see what we can come up with.

I've listened to this 3-song run from 5/7/16 so many times:

Big Eyed Fish >
Bismarck
Sugar Will

This opening run from 6/25/13 is another trio I love:

Warehouse
Broken Things
Recently

And this opening run from 9/12/05 was really weird and amazing:

Recently
Drive in Drive Out
Typical Situation


I imagine there's no shortage of awesome and different 3-song runs I love, but those 3 came to mind first.

WH5 Vol. 1 is one of my favorite “shorter” DMB listens to run through. I usually listen to complete concerts or live releases/bonus discs, but I’ll try and think of more as well. They definitely exist.

I love that 9/12/05 one. Definitely used to play that one a lot.

Despite being a newer show with newer songs, this 7/24/13 run has an old school feel to me.

Crazy Easy
Runnin' Down a Dream
Kit Kat Jam
Recently

this one impresses me on paper:

June 28, 2006
Tweeter Center at the Waterfront, Camden, NJ

Raven
Say Goodbye
Dancing Nancies
Warehouse
Typical Situation

Great pick. It actually works great if you listen to the opening five songs.

The Stone »
Warehouse
Grace Is Gone
Seven
You Might Die Trying

The horns do a callback riff in YMDT - Jeff starts off his solo with a cool riff and then the both play it over Tim's solo. The riff also sounds a bit like what they play over Boyd's solo in GIG, giving this opening run a cool, cohesive feel.

It's great. The best newer Crazy Easy, best Runnin Down a Dream DMB played imo, and the KKJ liberation. You can even hear Carter laughing during Recently (which has Pretty Pretty Girl/Take Me To The River). It's a great run to throw on in the summer.

This is purely a personal thing, but this run from 6/3/17 D&T is what DMB/Dave is all about for me. Every song is serving an aspect of my fandom:

Crush (great D&T, an unexpected opener)
Pig (shocking D&T debut, works fantastic)
So Much to Say (a fairly rare D&T song)
Granny (I was in love with the Luther version when I became a fan)
Old Dirt Hill (fell in love with D&T version of this song when Radio City came out)
Fool to Think (a rarity, and brilliant D&T song)
Say Goodbye (fell in love with the Luther version before the DMB version)
Worried Man Blues (something new I hadn't seen before)
A Whiter Shade of Pale (a favourite recent Dave cover)
Warehouse (a classic tune, killer D&T)
Spoon (a huge rarity, performed flawlessly)

That show was pure joy, and that opening run of several songs was serving all the things I love about an exciting and balanced show: different eras, rarities, songs that work great acoustically, great solos, etc etc. What a brilliant show.

Kinda in this realm but I always have thought dave has a thing with the letter S. I don’t have specific examples off the top of my head but it seems like he will play 3 letter S songs in a row sometime.

I think he just has a lot of songs that start with S, and many are common.

Seven
Shake Me Like a Monkey
Stay
Satellite
So Much To Say
Samurai Cop
Seek Up
She
Sister
Sledgehammer
So Damn Lucky
So Right
Space Between
Stay or Leave
Spaceman
Squirm
The Stone
Stolen Away
Sweet
Smooth Rider
Sugar Will

All of these songs have gone through periods of heavy play.

Great pick... an absolutely classic D&T run for sure.

Agree on the opening three songs to LT 22, that’s Jeff at his best. I also love the opening run from Atlantic City, 1.0 songs played with 3.0 flair:
Seek Up
Warehouse
What Would You Say

I listen to the 5/22/16 encore a lot:
Bismarck
SMTS>
ASTB>
Too Much fake>
Tripping Billies>
Warehouse

I run to this part of LT 33 (Lupo’s 95) filler disc:
Tripping Billies
Granny
Recently
Say Goodbye
Two Step>
Best of What's Around

Wasnt there a show from early 06 that had THE run? I want to say it was riverbend or something early in the tour.

EDIT: I think Mike VDH got the run from Deer Creek

The 8/7/04 one is great. Very summery.

To me, the 6/2/06 is tremendous on paper but really lacks in the performance category.
