Rank the Big Whiskey Songs

My list had been changing a lot, but it's getting more finalized so I figured it was time for a "rank the songs" thread. Hopefully there hasn't been one already, I did a search and didn't find one...

Here's my current rankings, I left out Grux since it's just an intro and not a full song.

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

    2) Squirm
    3) Shake Me Like A Monkey
    4) Baby Blue
    5) Time Bomb
    6) Alligator Pie
    7) Spaceman
    8) Why I Am
    9) Grux
    10) Seven
    11) You and Me
    12) Dive In
    13) Funny The Way It Is

    I'm very curious as to why you put Sugar Will on your list and not Baby Blue.

    It's hard to rank them after the first three or four, they're very close after that, other than the bottom one. It's very solid all around.

    I've been a DMB fan for a long time, but have been absent from the boards for quite a while. Am I missing something? Where is "Baby Blue" and "Dive In" coming from?

    Glad to see you're back! I missed your excellent discussions and opinions. "Baby Blue" and "Dive In" are from Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King - a studio album made by The Dave Matthews Band, and released in 2009.
