Any body hear the Greatful dead during Packers vs Seahawks

Recommended Posts

Good morning everybody,


Anybody else catch the Saint Of Circumstance line during the Packers vs Seahawks game yesterday? During the 3rd quarter after the Packers scored they went to a commercial break and before the break they played this line: "This must be heaven" with Bob Weir singing.... I almost fell out of my chair!!!  So cool to get a Grateful Dead song during a football game. Enjoy the day everybody....

Hi Mike - yeah I heard it.  Shakedown too - had to rewind to make sure!   Also heard what I thought was a Phish song as well as Tom Sawyer by Rush in honor of Neil Pert.  Pretty cool.

Yes, I heard Saint of Circumstance.  I wonder if the boys got royalties!!  You would think they'd at least play if for a Saints game.  I was thrown back.  I bet one person out there heard the song and googled it.  They may have stole another face.  I must have missed Shakedown

They absolutely have to give their permission for their songs to be played.  And they get paid a royalty if they do.


Although Hunter has made it clear that he was protective of their property for what felt right to him (very little), I’m still sort of surprised we don’t hear GD music a bit more often than barely ever.  Perhaps the respective estates will green light more usage.


I sure would like more EOTW during elevator rides.

      A song that for me totally embodies the relationship between two incredible talents that speak to one another thru their instruments. They both really shine in this one. Heard Jeff do it last year, I think Atlanta, and he fucking killed it.  Makes me emotional to hear Jerry sing it during this era. He was awesome.

      I did both those jgb merriweather shows, alpine and poplar creek. Horn hat AKG 460's > dbx224(battery converted) >d5. The dixie at merriweather, the lonesome at Alpine and the let's spend at poplar were choice. Heading to Louisville this weekend for Uli jon roth , closest thing to hendrix I've ever seen. My first deal was when jg opened for fz August 1984 in Chicago. the studio version is a good listen.

      I love this song. I love the record version, and I love how it changed over the years. There were more than a few hot ones in 1983-1984, then while always good, it seems that 1989 brought out extra hot ones again. I love this one with JGB, its a toss up between this one and the Alpine Valley shows from the summer which I like best from that year.

    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: goganious · 02/09/2019
      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.
