  2. I'm originally from the Detroit, MI, area... so I gotta go with a Motown song. Plus, I felt like going old-school.

    This song has been lifting my spirits for a very, very long time.....and it still does. It's not the lyrics so much, so it must be the music...yeah, definitely the bass line....

    Agreed. I was fortunate enough to see one of the shows on that tour live. Just sublime.

    That line up was an embarrassment of riches musically. So tight and they all looked like they were having so much fun!

    I found it uplifting just finding out there's a band called String Cheese Incident. (Sincerely.)

    The song is pretty joyful, nice choice.

    What a cast of characters on this one. If your toes aren't tapping then you might wanna lay down. You're dead.

    I played this briefly on a band that melted down. The crowd response was great - similar to Taking it to the Streets (above).
