    Birds sing there's not a cloud in the sky August 8th is a beautiful day
    I see a bunch of hippies crying yeah August 8th is a beautiful day
    Like waking up from a real bad dream suddenly everything is OK
    The storm has passed the sun is shining yeah August 8th is a beautiful day
    What's going on what's going on is something bumming your scene
    There's something wrong there's something wrong I'm not trying to be mean
    The air is sweet the summer flowers blooming nowhere in sight is there anything grey
    Feelings of joy are filling the street yeah beautiful day
    Like waking up from a fucked up dream suddenly everything's looking good
    There's been no permanent damage done
    Yeah August 8th came right when it should

    Staying home on
    Such a beautiful
    Day

    favorite dead song

    The start of the 5/8/77 Barton Hall concert, New Minglewood Blues. They came right out of the gate killing it. The recently issued Betty board remaster of this show is literally spine tingling.

    Thatís the irony

    In "Heavy Petting Zoo" there is a song called 8th August, what does it mean for you this day?

    This is pretty funny. I wrote this song about Jerry Garcia dying, cuz I fucking hate the Grateful Dead, but it turns out I had the date wrong. He really dies on August 9th. Whoops. I guess I'm lame. -FAT MIKE
    I donít have a fave song but my favorite album is Mars Hotel

    Looks Like Rain (the JG meltdown at the end moves me)

    Comes a Time (crushes me)

    Unbroken Chain (the patience, the buildup, the changes at the end...)

    Dark Star is pretty good if you're into that sort of thing

    The Days Between (phantom ships with phantom sails , set to see on phantom tides)

    also love the cowboy songs. A good thread would be GD songs you dont like
