I was hoping "Reba" would pull off the upset.

But we had 48 votes and the poll was open 8 days. That's plenty of time.

So as cliche as it is (from my POV anyway) to vote "YEM," that's what I did.

B/c I like it better than "Antelope."

Antelope.

No doubt in my mind.

I am yet to hear a bad one.

I have heard a handful or two ;D

YEM can not match the full-out power of a raging Antelope.

So there!

While I certainly disagree with what you say, I shall defend to the death your right to say it.

Although YEM is Phish's signature song, and can lend itself to a much wider array of jamming possibilities than Antelope generally does, I'm going with Antelope at the moment because I agree with young Willis. The power of a good Antelope is just too hard to beat.

And as you rise above the fear lines in his frown
You look down
Hear the sound of the faces in the crowd

Really, there is no arguing.

I feel like my post above is putting YEM down, which it most certainly does not deserve to be.

This match-up is all about personal opinion, and like G2k said, nothing you can do about it!

You guys.

Stop basing your vote on which song rocks harder!

I voted "Heaven's On Fire" by KISS cuz it f%^&( ROCKS HARD! BABY ALL NIGHT!!

I mean, I voted YEM because it's way totally raging.

I mean because I like the song more.

WATSIYEM?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Sorry Marco, I had to do what I had to do.

YEM just has the tendency to bring DA PHUNK! and when it's all said and done, I like to get down to the crunchy phunk more than the raging atelope. Nothing against the horned beast, but yem is just too much fun.

there.

i said it.

and now im done.

so long.

Postby Guelah » Tue Jul 24, 2007 10:48 pm

I like Antelope more nowadays, even though the composition in YEM is absolute genius. I just love the feeling of happiness that floods through my body when Trey does that fork, you know (in Antelope) ...biddillyOP Bah doooooooo badabadabadabadabadaba whooooooooooooowwwww


...YEAH!


It's still so hard to vote on this one. I mean, if it weren't for YEM, I don't think I would like Phish nearly as much, due to my early recognition of their talent and Trey's genuis because of the song. WTFATSIYEM?? Y'know? And then you got some crazy jams that can go virtually anywhere, and then some crazy vocal jams that can do the same. Damn, this is a hard one.

I'm going with Antelope. I guess the only other reason why (besides the fact that I like it better) is that it beat the song that I believe should have won (and since it didn't, I'm fuckin' leavin' the OKP...), Reba...

Marco Esquandolas takes the cake, but my decision came with grief...

Go Lope!

I'll explain. I believe YEM along with Harry were used too much as a crutch. If a set was floundering or had no spunk from the get go, these songs were used to bail themselves out and please the crowd. Although that should not take away from the brilliance that these 2 flaunted throughout the years, Antelope always seemed to shine no matter what the mood of the set and certainly never seemed like a bail out tune.

I fail to agree that either were used as a 'bail' out tune.... But I see your thoughts and think of it as more of a "every band has a few /staples/ they play... You could say that about a few of their other tunes.... But I won't as these two tunes are in the finals....
