This song just proves that the band doesn't need a violin or a saxophone to make such powerful music.

Awesome song!

46 So Right So Right
47 Big Eyed Fish Big Eyed Fish

This song is amazing, it should be higher.

Don't know his material well enough yet to pick an actual #1 but I can say right now this is his most under-appreciated. maybe if theyd had a middle ground between the lillywhite and busted stuff versions...

48 Drunken Soldier Drunken Soldier

Great song. The heavy guitar play combined with the slow start to some great motivational lyrics - a favourite.

49 Cornbread Cornbread
50 Out of My Hands Out of My Hands
51 Sweet Caroline Sweet Caroline
52 Angel Angel

Like wine for my soul. I get lost in this song

53 Spoon Spoon

A great closer for a great album. A sort of calm ballad with solos from the band. It shows that not only are the band members good song writers, but they are true masters at their instruments.

An absolutely stunning song, and with the banjo and Alanis' bits I'm sold. Very thought-provoking and beautiful tune that I could listen to for days on end.

I really like this song. I wonder why this wasn't even in the list.

56 Some Devil Some Devil
57 Rhyme & Reason Rhyme & Reason

My head won't leave my head alone...boy do I understand that. Might be why it's almost 4:00 am and I'm checking out DMB hit lists

58 Everybody Wake Up Everybody Wake Up
59 Seek Up Seek Up

This might well be my favorite song of all time. I will never forget the day in the fall of 1997 when Live at Red Rocks was released and I scurried down to the college record shop to pick up this album. I went home, put on the headphones, lied down on my bed, and was immediately mesmerized with Seek Up at track #1. I was blown away, particularly by the intro. The energy and richness of the instrumentals and the meaning of the lyrics is something that continues to move me even today after listening to it many hundreds of times, including live in concert on eight occasions (including this summer, 2016). Definitely an underappreciated masterpiece from DMB. In addition to the incredible Red Rocks version, if you can locate the June 8, 1997 version it is also amazing.

The most beautifull song I've ever listened to, just plain eargasmic - maynardcheech

Love this song and the live variations

It's the best song ever
