MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 297

Welcome to the 297th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday: the fourth of five October editions, and the second hardest of the month. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of all four mystery clips – these clips are connected by a theme, but it needn't be part of the correct answer. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday. Good luck!

Hint: One man's junk is another man's funk.

Answer: And then there were fourteen... that's right folks, we have our 14th MJM Emeritus Champion, Mr. @FunkyCFunkyDo! This week, he needed the hint to push him across the seas to Prussia's shore, where he yelled the correct answers from the top of the throne: 11/22/94 "Funky Bitch (-> Jam)," 8/31/12 "Undermind," 9/1/17 "No Men in No Man's Land," and 6/22/12 "Kill Devil Falls." Depending on whether you consider the first clip "Funky Bitch" or just "Jam" (phish.net calls it "Jam"), this week's clips' first letters spell "FUNK" or "JUNK," respectively.

The fact that @FunkyCFunkyDo, aka Pete, acheived Emeritus status this week is particularly fitting in a couple ways. First off, given his handle, could he have chosen a better MJM on which to mic drop than one that spells "FUNK" and starts with a "Funky Bitch" jam? Second, the day on which he answered correctly, October 24th, 2017, was the three year anniversary of my meeting him for the first time and hitting a show together: 10/24/14 Forum. Member that Disease? Oh yeah I member... Notably, with Pete's win, "Pete" breaks the tie with "Dan" to become the commonest MJM Emeritus champion name, 3 to 2 (@schvice knows what's up).

Funny enough, 10/24/14 wasn't the first time Pete & Pete had seen Phish in that room on the same day – 2/14/03 was his first show (perhaps you've heard Funky talk about that previously, maybe the "Forum Gin"? Maybe one of these 87 results on Google?), and it was just my fourth show. We've been lucky enough to see over 20 of the same shows since, and have shared in some times of great joy and times of overwhelming emotion thanks to our favorite band. With that, it is with great pleasure that I hand @FunkyCFunkyDo his key to The Vault, a new pair of invisible dancepants, a burned copy of Fred McGriff's previously-banned dance training video, carte blanche to provide unsolicited MJM clip ideas, and one last code good for the free MP3 download of any show available at LivePhish.com. Nice work Pete!

Our friend @Dog_Faced_Boy will be bringing the high heat on Monday with MJM298, the hardest of the month. Don't miss it!

Nice! I had the last three pretty quickly, then I went too far down the Friday shows rabbit hole.

I got the Undermind immediately and I knew the third jam was from 2017 (that delightful, ethereal, drifting sound that is so representative of 2017). I knew I KNEW the first jam as a "classic jam"... and it took my a day to pinpoint it. And then when the hint dropped, I first started searching for songs that had "Man" in the title, thinking that was the thread that linked them... and by chance, it led me to 2017 versions Wolfman's and NMINML. Then, I kinda tilted my head and wondered... F...U...N... and I immediately went to the jamcharts to find big versions of K... KDF, and there it was!

betty_ford dammit. work getting in the way of my search. Had the first three for 24 hours then was searching through 2010-2012 for a bit, and then reality struck. nice job @FunkyCFunkyDo.

mcgrupp81 11/22/94 is such a tight jam. Kudos to Phish for including it as filler on the 5/7/94 Live Phish release. Ah filler! I loved get surprise fillers in a CD trade back in the early 00's. I remember the 8/31 show because I was watching the webcast and passed out on the couch after set 1. Bad move. Jaded vet friend went to that run and was very impressed, rightfully so, after attending that particular show. Where did 5 years go again?
