I posted this thread last year and it went really well and I'm guessing it helped a couple of people so time to do it again for Bonnaroo 2008!! This is the thread where we recommend songs from artists playing at Bonnaroo this year so the Inforooians that are going to Bonnaroo can discover artists they may have not heard before...before going to Bonnaroo itself. Admittedly, I'm doing this for myself as much as I'm doing it for the community, so I'm ready to rock my fourth Bonnaroo Every artist playing needs some song recommendations from Pearl Jam straight to Chromeo. Some recommendations may be obvious ones, hit songs, but some people may not be familar with some of the big name bands at all. I'll try to keep it formatted and updated with everybody's suggestions.
Let's try to get it down to 5 songs per artist. (EDIT: AKA, 5 song limit) ..exceptfortheheadlinerstheyget8andpearljamgets9causeIsayso.
If you guys can, try to include a youtube link to the song and I'll include it in the thread to make this as nice and neat as possible. But, it doesn't have to have a youtube link.
Pearl Jam - Alone, Animal, Black, Breath, Can't Keep, Down, Education, Faithful, Glorified G, In Hiding, Leash, Light Years, Love Boat Captain, Low Light, Off He Goes, Otherside, Present Tense, Wishlist, Yellow Led
Kanye West - We Don't Care, All Falls Down, Spaceship, Champion, Good Life, Flashing Lights, Everything I Am, The Glory
Phil Lesh & Friends - whatever dead he plays
My Morning Jacket - Mahgeetah, Dancefloors, Wordless Chorus
The Allman Brothers Band - don't really know too much by them, but Jessica of course, and anything else
Pat Green - If I had me a million Ruby's 2 sad daughters One for the road Headed Home Going Away Wave on Wave Wrapped Count your blessings
Where are all the Pat Green Fans? Am I the only one on this board? I challenge you guys to download "If I had me a million" or "Ruby's 2 sad daughters" by Pat Green. I think he would have more hype if people gave him a chance.
I've never heard of Donovan Frankenreiter till the line up came out, but I'm a fan now. I've always liked the sound that Jack Johnson and Ben Harper have. Frankenreiter blends with them I think. Are there any more artists in this line-up that have that sound? Who else am I missing out on? And where are the Pat Green fans?

52-50 About Mr. Brown Anyway Delicate Few Missing Pieces Black Rock Whose Chariot I feel Home Patiently (only released on 34th & 8th) Dareh Meyod About an Hour Ago
personally, i would get any of the three live CD's (Anytime Now, 34th & 8th, and Live at MSG) they have released. Their studio albums are good, but as with alot of bands, their live cds are incredible.
- Miss Tinkle's Overture (a must have) - In the Kitchen ( jammy winner for 'jam of the year') - Wife Soup - Bridgeless ( a must have) - Bullhead City ( a good song that show you thier range in style) - JaJunk pt 1 &2 - Plunger - The Tripple Wide
- They have tons of podcasts out there and those would give you a better idea of what thier live shows are like...
The Disco Biscuits:
- Home Again (a must have) - Caterpillar - I Man ( a must have ) - Highwire - Cyclone
- The Disco Biscuits are impossbile to comprehend without seeing them play live
For the novice: When The Disco Biscuits and Umphrey's McGee play together, as they often do, the resulting merger of the two bands are refered to as "D.U.M.B" - a combination of thier initials.
The D.U.M.B. show in at Bonnaroo 2006 was legendary - epic - otherworldly...
Typically at a DUMB show one band will start thier set - and play thier original music for an hour or two - then members of the other bands will filter in one by one. After playing together for another hour or two - members of the first band will filter off stage one by one - and the second band will play thier orginal music for another two hours. The DUMB set at 'Roo 2006 lasted from midnight to 7:00-7:30 am.
Disco Biscuits and Umphrey's McGee most commonly cover songs from Pink Floyd, Led I can't spell Zeppelin, The Who - but they will cover almost anything. Last time I saw a DUMB show they covered "Panama" by Van Halen...
