Top Ten Best Phish Songs


I was looking for a list that had something to do with the band Phish. AND I DID NOT FIND ONE! So finally I'm putting up a list on thetoptens so that those who love Phish as much as I do can sleep comfortably at night knowing that a list is on its way. Don't agree with the list?

The Top Ten

The Guitar solo is ridiculous I love it and the snapping just makes it so much more catchy just an overall amazing phish song

2Run Like An Antelope
Great to run to. Saw running antelopes and signs along NYC marathon course:-)
Just a personal favorite... Always jams...
Antelope is great at any show

3Sample In a Jar
Just saw phish at hampton colosium two weeks ago and I think I was peaking about that song...

4The Lizards

The lyrics almost remind you of a nursery rhyme but when they break the barrier after the vocals, beautiful things tend to happen then
Love the way it just winds and twists away into a million conceivable musical ideas, one of their best studio epics.
Hard to choose one, but it's definitely between Reba, Harry Hood, and Run Like an Antelope. It is for me anyway. Stash? No way. Overall, the list is pretty good.


7Harry Hood
Best phish song in my opinion
Hood jams are the best!

8Slave to the Traffic Light

9Chalk Dust Torture
Can I LIVE while I'm young!?!?


The Contenders

11You Enjoy Myself
YEM is amazing. The complex intro and catchy rhythm. This song is the meaning of Phish and defines them as a band in one song.
Haha. # 26. Easily # 1. Try making another list with YEM on top and ill take it serious.


13Bouncing Around the Room
How can you not feel like a child in a remarkable new world when you hear this song? It's more than amazing.

14Bathtub Gin


16Wolfman's Brother

Tweezer is a solid jam vehicle. I totally love all of the other songs, but Tweezer is a gem in a setlist and can go to great places when being jammed. Reba, Bag, and Guyute would be in my top 5.
Tweezer is THE Phish jam!



20The Divided Sky
No doubt that divided sky should be in top 10 along with yem


22The Squirming Coil

23Access Me


25Colonel Forbin's Ascent


27AC/DC Bag

One of those songs you can listen to over and over again and never get tired of.

29Lawn Boy

30Walls of the Cave


A modern classic. Hope 100 years from now will be remembered because is a fantastic song

Great song! Makes me feel free!
An epic love song

34David Bowie
Why is this song so low? Top 5 for sure! And why is YEM at the bottom? And where is The Divided Sky? Come on people, you're leaving out the best work of Phish.


36Birds of a Feather


Sunrise under turquoise mountains messenger birds in sight they came up through the valley both sides at a time
RAID! I bend down poke a double decker on a llama taboot llama Taboot taboot trigger a blastoplast ram shackle laker recedes I start to run it was the loudest thing I ever heard and I knew my time had come

This is definitely one of the best Phish songs. It's short but sweet and has poignant lyrics and that kind of acoustic magic that makes Phish Phish.

4046 Days
Always a rocker with great extended versions

41Wading In the Velvet Sea
Should be closer to top!
Should be at the top!
By far, my favorite


43Runaway Jim

44First Tube


46Theme From the Bottom

47Down With Disease


49Weekapaug Groove

50Prince Caspian

51Heavy Things
