    Damn fine song. Got it this summer. Everyone sat down in the beginning, but by the end a good chunk of the sitters got back up because it was so good. Loved that the pace got picked up again this year.

    Used to not pay much attention to this song but it's grown on me. Solid song.

    it dont gotz teh ehnrgiez





    im a fan of it, as long as it isnt horribly placed. being the "classic" song between a run of like spacebread and shake me isn't exactly going to get me excited for it. but its good when surrounded by other older songs.

    They played it a few times right after Rapunzel. Thought that was perfect placing for it.

    If you get a chance check out some of the D&T versions from 99 (i believe) the breakdown is pretty cool and sounds awesome in that setting.

    Re: Digging a Ditch is beautiful

    people dont like it because energy determines if a song is written in quality fashion around these parts. digging a ditch is real quiet and for that reason alone, its not good to some people.

    doesnt make much sense, but it is what it is.

    Awesome. Never heard it live, but those interpolations in SDL at Hershey were awesome. I was hoping the show would have ended right there. Such a great song

    I completely agree with Nick on this one, DaD is great. Listen to the somber emotion on the LWS version. So good. Even the slightly more uptempo BS version is quite good. I've always liked the lyrics...fit the whole mood of the LWS perfectly.

    when i ask people why they think cornbread is good despite the horrendous lyrics, they tell me because the song gets the crowd going.

    that doesnt even answer my question really.
