Your top 20 plus 10 honorable mentions (2018 edition)

Curious to see how the last few albums have affected anyone’s top 20 over the last decade or so. Before the happens, believe it or not, these threads - without strange caveats or rules - haven’t really been around in the last decade.

So, the question is, post “Little 3,” what are your top 20? Has anything changed over the last decade? Have BW, AFTW, or CT songs made the cut for you? Have any classics gotten slightly bumped? Your list can be a mix of whatever you want (studio and/or live) but have to be DMB songs only (so, no Some Devil tracks, but songs like TGIY are fine because it was on a DMB album).

This is pretty straightforward - what are your top 20 DMB songs as of 2018?

My Top 20

1) The Stone
2) The Last Stop
3) JTR
4) Sugar Will
5) Best of What’s Around
6) #41
7) Loving Wings
8) Shotgun (2006)
9) Crush
10) Raven (LWS)
11) You Never Know
12) Captain (LWS)
13) Dreaming Tree
14) Bartender
15) #34
16) Minarets
17) Granny
18) Lie in Our Graves
19) Fool to Think
20) Sweet Up and Down

Honorable Mentions

#40
Again and Again
Ants Marching
Busted Stuff
Crash
Monkey Man
Recently
Seek Up
So Right
Spoon

As an aside, I wanted to note that having to think this through for the first time in a long time decided my own “Crush or #41” thread for me.

Tier 2:
#41, Ants Marching, Best of What's Around, Last Stop, Lie In Our Graves, Pig, So Right, Warehouse, You Never Know

Tier 3:
Fool To Think, JTR, Pay For What You Get, Say Goodbye, The Stone

Tier 4:
#34, Bartender (LWS), Captain (LWS), Spoon, Typical Situation

Honorable Mentions:
Again and Again
Dancing Nancies
Idea of You
Loving Wings
Rapunzel
Recently
Snow Outside
Sweet Up and Down

Not a chance in hell a song from post LWS makes my top 20
Maybe a few could get to honorable mention, maybe
Hello Again and You Never Know for example but those are not even from the last three releases.
From CT, She has the most potential to become a monster imo and is prob my fav song on there

How is sugar will in so many of your top 20s? its a meandering song that was never really finished. Like you put it over Recently, or Ants Marching, Typical Situation or other classic DMB songs?

not a bad song, but when you really talk about the cream of the crop, is that a top 5 or 10 or even 20 song?

That’s ridiculous. I see the argument but Dave has certainly written a few good-to-great songs since then.
