Build A Set List - The Late 80s
And now, for the interactive portion of this blog...
Thought it would be fun, and possibly a bit interactive to see what your ultimate Set List, or Mix Tape would look like. Here's the deal. I'm going to pick a period in time (in this case, the late 80's, 1986-89), and create what would the best possible set list that they could of played at that time. There are some rules, such as you need to pick songs that were actually played during those years, the show format needs to be similar (in this particular case, 1st Set>2nd Set w/Drums>Space>Encore) and the placement of songs should be similar as well as far as what set they would be in, what songs would lead off and end sets, etc.. You need to figure in what would of been an average length of a show too (in this case a 60-75 minute first set, a 70-90 minute 2nd set, 1 encore song). And of course, toggling songs between Jerry & Bobby, with the occaisional Phil, Brent, Pigpen, etc. song.
I hope I've explained this well enough, probably not, but once you take a look at my list, you'll get the idea.

So, there it is. Try not to spend too much time thinking about it. Make the list from what comes to your mind first. They may of actually played this show, but I don't know myself, I just made it up, and that was the fun of it. Give it a try as a comment. I'd like to see what you come with...
