Top Ten Best Phish Songs

fireinside96
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.

The Top Ten

1 Stash

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

One of the most creative artistic endeavors of the last century, hands down!

My stash reeks. need a charcoal bag.

One word: EPIC!

2 Run Like an Antelope

Phish are the best improvisers in music history. Their live shows are incredible! I need to see them, I cannot die a happy man until I see Phish - ryanrimmel

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

3 The Lizards

No Phish songs made my Top 50 song list (composition and improvisations included are another story entirely) execpt for "Lizards," "Possum" and "Mike's Song." To me, 4/16/92 features the definitive versions of all of these tunes.

4 Sample in a Jar

Just saw phish at hampton colosium two weeks ago and I think I was peaking about that song...

5 Maze
6 Slave to the Traffic Light

The perfect Phish tune--a beautiful masterpiece.

It's their building, sprawling masterpiece

This song is all of Phish in one song

7 Harry Hood

You can feel good about Hood

Best phish song in my opinion
12-31-93
11-27-97
12-18-99

Hood jams are the best!

Where do you go?

8 Reba

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.

9 You Enjoy Myself

This is the band's anthem. Period.

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.

10 Julius

The Contenders

11 Chalk Dust Torture

Can I LIVE while I'm young!?!?

12 Fluffhead
13 Bouncing 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.

14 Rift
15 Bathtub Gin
16 Wolfman's Brother
17 Farmhouse

This is the song that made me fall in love with phish! There's nothing I can say but... It's so good! - ryanrimmel

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

18 The Divided Sky

No doubt that divided sky should be in top 10 along with yem

19 Wilson
20 Tweezer

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!

21 Cavern
22 David 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.

23 Lawn Boy
24 Access Me
25 Ghost

Access Me is above Ghost! I repeat: ACCESS ME IS ABOVE GHOST!

26 Guyute
27 Colonel Forbin's Ascent
28 The Squirming Coil
29 Dirt

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

One of the greatest songs ever written with some great guitar in it too

30 Taste
31 Icculus
32 AC/DC Bag
33 Llama

It's simply so craazy

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

34 Walls of the Cave
35 Simple
36 NICU
37 Free

Great song! Makes me feel free!

An epic love song

38 Gumbo
39 Birds of a Feather

This is one of the most fun songs to jam to. Full of energy and gordo and trey are amazing

40 Sleep

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.

41 Wading In the Velvet Sea

It should be on number one, seriously!

Should be closer to top!

Should be at the top!

By far, my favorite

42 Runaway Jim
43 Theme From the Bottom
44 46 Days

Always a rocker with great extended versions

45 Heavy Things
46 Fee
47 Contact
48 Blaze On
49 Weigh
50 First Tube
