Garcia: Favorite GD Jerry Songs

Continuing our 8 day celebration of everything Jerry, I submit to you my Top 10 Favorite Grateful Dead Jerry Songs. There is no way I could rank order them, as my favorites change on a pretty regular basis. But on based on my gut-feeling at the moment, I listed out my ten favorite. They are:
  • Bird Song
  • Brown-Eyed Women
  • Candyman
  • Eyes of the World
  • Might As Well
  • Ramble On Rose
  • Scarlet Begonias
  • Shakedown Street
  • Terrapin Station
  • Wharf Rat

What's your Top 10?

Great lists so far.

Mark - Good choices, there were two (Mission and Reuben) that might fit better in my upcoming Favorite JGB song list, but The Dead played those songs too, albeit just a few times, so it counts here.

Jonathan - I'll count Cumberland Blues, Jerry co-wrote the music with Phil, so it works.

Natalie - Great job, but not so sure about Truckin, Jerry co-wrote the music, but Bobby sang lead. Welcome to the blog!

Nice to see some variety here, if I get a few more, I'll add them up to get a cumulative result. Very scientific, huh ;-)

I just went by the writing, even if it was only co-written.
