    Re: Rank the Big Whiskey Songs

    Watch Dive In rise to a top 3 position on most rankings by the end of this tour.
    This song will be a monster live with a LIOG -type jam led by Boyd. In its debut
    at SPAC N2, the song was already extended with a great Boyd solo....this will
    be a classic !!!

    Dude... the song's chorus is 4 of the most cheesy chords in music. The verse is a little better but not by much. This song is pop. I don't hate it like I do some stand up stuff, but Dive in has no potential to be a classic.

    The jam at the ended is just a simple cheesy 4-chord progression (same as the chorus) with Boyd doing a solo that only has me interested because he was absent on the album. he hit like 6 total notes. I don't think you have listened to LIOG if you think dive in has a "liog-type jam".

    As for the thread...

    1.Squirm
    2.LITHOG
    3. SMLAM
    4. Baby Blue
    5. WIA
    6. AP
    7. Seven
    8. TB (only because the outro is terribly done)
    9. Spaceman
    10. You and Me
    11. FTWII
    12. Dive in

    Re: Rank the Big Whiskey Songs

    I think I can finally do this. Still I can't make a numbered list but groups, or tiers of songs. The first 5 songs I lOVE and are extremely close in ranking:


    1. Squirm/Lying in the hands of God
    2. Seven/Time bomb
    3. Baby Blue
    4. Why I Am/Spaceman/Dive In
    5. Alligator Pie/Shake Me Like A Monkey
    6. You and Me/Funny the way it is

    Re: Rank the Big Whiskey Songs

    Set - occasionally SMLAM moves to the top if I feel like
    1. Squirm
    2. Seven
    3. Shake Me Like a Monkey
    4. Time Bomb
    5. Why I Am

    These next ones change position depending on my mood.
    6. You and Me
    7. Dive In
    8. Alligator Pie
    9. Baby Blue
    10. Funny the Way it Is

    Still can't get into...
    11. Lying in the Hands of God

    Probably the only one I'm likely to skip.
    12. Spaceman

    1. Squirm
    2. Time Bomb
    3. You and Me
    4. Alligator Pie
    5. Dive In
    6. Shake Me Like a Monkey
    7. Funny the Way It Is
    8. Why I Am (live version rocks harder, album version is slower)
    9. Lying in the Hands of God
    10. Baby Blue
    11. Spaceman (live version is much much better)
    12. Seven

    Re: Rank the Big Whiskey Songs

    Although i've heard the entire album about a dozen times, i still don't think the bottom of my list is finalized yet.

    1) Squirm
    2) Lying in the Hands of God
    3) Why I Am
    4) Dive In
    5) Seven
    6) Shake me like a Monkey
    7) Spaceman
    8) Alligator Pie
    9) My Baby Blue
    10) Funny the way it is
    11) You and Me
    12) Time Bomb

    i've seen LITHOG at the top of many people's lists which makes me happy. also, does anyone else notice a little zeppelin style in squirm (i.e. physical graffiti)??? hope i'm not the only one...

    not ranking Grux

    1. Squirm
    2. Time Bomb
    3. Seven
    4. Spaceman
    5. Alligator Pie
    6. Shake Me
    7. Why I Am
    8. LITHOG
    9. Baby Blue
    10. FTWII
    11. You and Me
    12. Dive In

    it's kind of strange, i look at this list and think that there has to be a clear cut least favorite song and while i like all the songs better than Dive In...i still really like that song.

    Re: Rank the Big Whiskey Songs

    what i can't understand (and have never been able to understand) is why put "funny the way it is" as the first single from this album? They rarely put their best song as their first single and at times fail to put a GOOD song (i.e. "I Did it" & "Where are you going"). I feel like "shake me like a monkey" or "why i am" would have been better singles. any thoughts?

    FTWII sounds like everything else on the radio to me, so I think that's why they went with it.
