Strange Design. I am guilty of overlooking this song for awhile, because I always talk about the jams, but this is a great tune.

Friday. Crowd groans and posts show that this song is definately underrated and unappreciated. At the wrong place at the wrong time, it's no good, but placed perfectly in a set, it's amazing.

Weigh is an awesuma song.
Controversial perhaps, but I think Gotta Jibboo is underrated. I just love the groove in it. I know it was overplayed in 99/00 and everybody got sick of it, but I think the few times they played it post-hiatus, it was extremely well played and well placed. God I can't wait til my copy of 6/20/04 gets here. How can you go wrong with Piper -> Gotta Jibboo?!

yeah....I don't usually like ballads. But the phish slow tunes are usually so great.

Waste, If I could, Anything but me, and even all of these dreams are excellent tunes.

Horn (played 6/20/04 also) is another ballad that I've always liked.

I've got the livephish version of that show and the YEM buildup is audible but you definately don't feel the energy that culminated in the venue. I'm sure that it's present on a non-livephish tape, and I know this is the wrong thread but if anyone has it, let me know...

Destiny Unbound!! Timber! Tela, Rift, , Mound, My Friend, My Friend, Dog Log, Mist, maybe not the most underrated, but how about Brother? It's fun, it can swing, and some explosive guitar there on the end. Meatstick, another very fun song. Vultures, love it. The Curtain With (Vegas 2000 version, any version but Coventry!!) has to be underrated since Trey thought enough of it to close out Coventry with it. Ahh there's too many to name

NICU, for sure. No one ever talks about it, but I think it's great. I also am a big fan of both Axilla's, which also doesn't get any praise.

"Horn" is possibly my favorite studio ballad. Good call.

Rift, Mound, Greenburg, Slave... Who says these tunes are underrated. Like what you think sounds good and you will be much happier.

Lately I think Gotta Jibboo and 46 Days are underrated. I like the newer songs, and they were finally taken Jibboo some new and interesting places after mostly doing the same thing with it in 99 and 00.

Underrated Phish Song = Mound.

The slow beginning is great, all four members clicking to make one weird sounding song, then it is sped up. Thats my type of Phish!

Esther..... I am on a esther rampage. :) >:(


I'd have to put Esther in my Top 3 Phish songs. The imagery in that song is unmatched. Every time I hear it, I just picture a small New England town (Burlington anyone?) with a bunch of moderately crazy townsfolk chasing this girl around. I also think of scenery from the movie "Big Fish" for some reason. Great song though.
