What's Your Favorite Encore??

#38159 3 years ago
When a show, sadly, has to end, what’s your favorite song to wrap up the night, Dead or Furthur? I started thinking about that as I was hiding from the heat today, looking at set lists. Though the unexpected Revolution, Gloria or Lucy in the Sky was certainly very fun, I always kind of preferred a slow ending; made it easier to come down after all the dancing. My favorite encore isn’t very original, but I don’t think anything is more beautiful: Brokedown Palace. Any night, but especially on the last night of a tour (mine or theirs), it's always perfect to be sung sweet and sleepy all the way back home!

So what’s anyone else’s favorite encore?

one like Terrapin or the 3 song RCMH encore are always great....

Black Muddy River I think would be my favorite, I know Furthur hasn't done it.

Brokedown was at the top of the list, for the reasons mentioned. But I always liked a change up. My favorite encore that I can think of,
was Red Rocks, 7/8/78. Terrapin Sta.>OMSN>Werewolves of London. Now thats an encore!
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

I'd say all of the above would sound pretty darn good. That Red Rocks triple, though- wow!!

Brokedown was always wonderful. Others that I remember fondly are The Weight from Giants Stadium in 1991 and the Black Muddy breakout at RFK in 1995. Last song I ever saw Jerry play and it's always been a favorite.

My all-time favorite encore, though I never saw the GD play it live, is And We Bid You Goodnight. Primal Dead.
