    Re: Fool to Think

    Have always enjoyed the song.

    Have not seen it live.

    I would like to see it live.

    8 shows this year. Probably won’t get it.

    It's amazing to me we only have The Gorge '02, LT40, and that Warehouse CD for versions of this song with Boyd and Roi.

    Re: Fool to Think

    Was literally just playing this song on guitar 5 minutes ago. I love this song. The guitar work is awesome, but Carter really makes the song.

    My favorite versions are from the Gorge 02 box set, and Benaroya Hall

    I’ve seen the song three times, twice Dave and Tim (London 2017, Blossom 2017) and once full band (Tampa 2018)

    The Warehouse version is 2012, so only 2 with Roi. Crazy.

    Funny this song is being talked about…have been listening to the Benaroya Hall version a lot. That version and Deer Creek with the extended outro are my favorite. May be biased on the Deer Creek version because I was there and totally caught off guard by that outro. So good though

    That outro was really fun. Fingers crossed it pops up at deer creek again this year.

    Get out of my head! This is exactly what I was coming in here to post. The extended outro at DC was so good. One of my favorite tracks from Everyday.

    It's a great song, and yet another reason why Everyday may have been crap in the studio, but it has some absolute tunes in a live setting.

    So true

    What You Are and So Right are both top 10 live songs for this band IMO.

    I think a lot of Everyday songs work well for the current lineup with Buddy Strong. They should be playing So Right, What You Are, If I Had It All, Fool to Think, and even Sleep to Dream Her more often with this lineup.

    This is a top 20 song for me, I've always loved the rhythm of it. One of the most underrated DMB songs

    I've always enjoyed it. I was at Deer Creek in 2012 for the extended version. Very happy it was finally released.

    The D&T versions from 2017 were magical.

    These songs are all criminally underplayed.

    It took them a loooong time to make something worthwhile out of those studio songs. I remember hearing recordings from that summer after the album came out and it was just... barren, desolate whenever they hit a song from Everyday. There was a lot of dead space in the mix at first, because those songs were so rigid and made specifically for the radio.

    Buddy is about half the reason I'm so excited for a new album this year. If they let him go off like he does live, we're in for a treat. Fantastic addition to this band.

    So Right is a top 5 live song for this current incarnation of DMB.

    I'm still peeved that Dave audibled WAYG in place of STDH at one of my shows 15 years ago.

    Agreed! Would love the deep tracks from Everyday more often.. But they will likely bring back Angel with Buddy doing the lovely ladies vocal parts

    Many of the songs outside the self titled track also still sound solid without the violin with the current iteration of the band. A lot of songs are ruined by the faster temopos and tim c/DC playing over dave but songs like so right, what you are, fool to think are enhanced by the current band.

    Fool to Think is great -- love the interplay between Carter and Jeff!

    Here are the Everyday songs I love to hear: So Right, Fool to Think, What You Are, When the World Ends, and surprisingly I Did It

    While I don't necessarily disagree with the prevailing sentiment of the thread, it's just wild to me the fact that Fool to Think was once considered to be near the very bottom of the band's catalog. How time flies.

    Wow, I never knew this. I mean to be fair I was like 8 when Everyday came out, But man, Carter's groove, Dave's unique guitar playing and Roi's smooth lines make this song so good. I'm surprised that this one was ranked low by many. Well, I know Everyday as a whole was kind of laughed at in comparison with the Lillywhite Sessions (rightfully so), but I'd think at least this track would've stuck out as a positive to most.
