Day Job is fine I just don't think it's a stellar song and it most of the time was the encore and I could rattle off a 100 songs I'd rather hear in that spot.

I think Furthur's set lists are more diverse than the Dead's were 93 - 95.

it's just a straightforward rock and roll song with funny ass lyrics to a crowd consisting of so many bum types.

sure we always want what we can't have for an encore.

and yeah, furthur setlists are way more diverse, but still hitting so many shows leads to the same issue.

i get why folks don't like it, i just like to hear all the different reasons why.

i hope they encore it on NYE night

To me it feels too pop, too superficial. It seemed trite when it appeared, and I haven't warmed up much to it since.
Like DM said, there's always 100 other songs I'd rather hear when that one pops up.

I wouldn't mind hearing it, and I don't mind hearing it when listening to a GD show either

I like Day Job. I always thought it was Jerry and Hunter trying to write a Chuck Berry tune.
