Shake me like a monkey
Funny the way it is
Lying in the hands of god
Why i am
Dive in
Spaceman
Squirm
Alligator pie
Seven
Time bomb
Baby blue
You and me

    Alligator Pie, or Seven, or LITHOG. The rest suck.

    Saw Squirm as an opener in Charleston and thought it was a very good fit...kind of like a DDTW type opener...packs a big punch.

    I like Seven but I don't know if it would be a great opener. Still would pick it out of the list though. Maybe Why I am.

    Funny the way it is. I think it's one of the top 3 songs from Big Whiskey honestly.

    Seven was a fun opener. I saw it in Fresno in '09. They pulled up the curtains when the riff changes and Dave sings, "Baaaaaaaby ... " the first time.

    I think that's still the only time they've opened with Seven ...

    What about LITHOG? That would be an interesting choice as an opener.

    squirm is the most overrated opener they have. people rave about it like its rapunzel or BOWA in that slot or something. i was bored out of my mind when i saw it open 3 different times.

    I think you're exaggerating quite a bit here. There are people on here that like it there or think it works. But i really have never seen anyone say its people or as good as those. If, so...well...i guess to each their own.

    Personally, I had it once, and was 'meh'. Works better as a 2 or 3 slot. Whenever they play it as an opener, the next song is usually something that would have been a better opener. You Might Die Trying works much better as an opener than Squirm.

    Re: Big Whiskey Opener?

    I don't think there's a really, really good opener from Big Whiskey, because I want a good, fast jam to start the show, like a PNP > Rapunzel or The Stone. Or Pig, I really liked Pig opening. But I like opening songs to have a little prelude (like for Bartender or Heartbeat for PNP) and a solid jam that's got a good speed to it. I just can't get behind a 3 minute opener like Shake Me or Why I Am, although at least Why I Am is a kinda-sorta band anthem.

    Squirm is too slow and so is Lying in the Hands of God. I think both songs would be much better off midset, along with Seven. I wouldn't like Seven opening either and in that video Dave started singing before the curtain got pulled up (I think PNP > Rapunzel is the best opener for the curtain pull.) But of all the Big Whiskey songs, I think the best choice is Funny the Way It Is. It has a little prelude, it's a decent, fast jam, and it's a fun song.

    EDIT: I wouldn't want Alligator Pie to open a show, but maybe Spaceman with that drum solo open that they were doing in winter 2010 Europe tour. As long as it isn't followed by Corn Bread. I wouldn't want Time Bomb either - the song sucks. And I don't think Dive In, Baby Blue or You & Me will ever open a full band show.

    I'd be bored, too. The only reason it was cool to see in Hershey - it was my first time seeing it (and random stat wise, it was the first time Squirm opened a show).
