      In high school my best friend was a huge Phish fan who repeatedly tried to get me into them to no avail.  I loathed them so much that I'd literally get nauseous when he'd pop in a cassette.


      And then he played this one....

      I can't say enough about how much this song hit me.  And still does.  I have no idea what the hell the lyrics mean, but there is some powerful feeling that coalesces with them and the music. 


      Even after that, I wasn't a Phish fan - just a "Fast Enough" fan - until this really amazing band ripped a terrific version of this tune in my buddies dorm lobby:



      Hooked.  Just listen to those drums!  To this day I am blown away at Fishman's approach.  I love the snare use in particular.  All song it comes in only when the song is really getting out of control, to accentuate the chaos, but then it is the snare he rides when it is time to take the song home at 6:45.

        Buy it. The whole album is fantastic. I listened straight through last night stuck in traffic. Here's the opening track. A bit more in your face.


        All of your wallowing is unbecoming

        You gotta take on your own from here, it's getting pathetic

        And I'm almost done... here

      I stumbled across these guys while surfing yesterday.  I've never heard them before and have no idea who they are, but I've decided that I like them.

        In Blue's songwriting genres thread, I mentioned convoluted story songs.  I immediately thought of this one, one of my all-time favorites.  This was back when Charlie Daniels was still a hippie.  I remember hearing it on a.m. radio when I was in grade school.  I remember my grandmother threatening to change the station when he got to the "damn near died" line.  And I remember the radio station bleeping out "asses" and seven-year-old me trying desperately to figure out what he really said.
