seaplant11, I couldn’t agree with you more. Some of the posts on this site are hilarious. The way some users simply don’t realize how something like this works and what should be expected. It’s a website open to anyone to vote as they see fit. That alone should suffice as to reason why some versions languish at the bottom and others get to the top. The fact that any user can vote for more than one version of a song should make it crystal clear to users that there will be some anomalies. Sometimes what someone says and especially the way they say it speaks volumes. It’s obvious that the following quoted excerpt was written by someone with loads of healthy relationships and tremendous ability to sway others with well written, intelligent assertions based on diligent research. “Fuck yeah, Donna! (And fuck absolutely anyone who doesn’t get down with the DG! If you don’t like her, you should’ve confronted Jerry face-to-face back in the day, to tell him how much his musical choices for the band sucked. You wouldn’t have lasted a day inside the band/on tour, yet she fuckin’ owned it for years.” That’s a helluva lot of solid research from a good listener. Turns out, screaming and name calling is the little known final step in the scientific method.

Of course it should be here. I certainly did not mean to imply otherwise. That’s precisely why I commented that it is a killer submission. And yes, it should be here so others are made aware if they have not yet discovered The Hartbeats. I even posted a link to some David and the Dorks in the comments on one submission a while back as there are likely quite a few that are unfamiliar with that coalition as well. My apologies for the confusion

The Matrix

from comments “Garcia is ON...but this is not the Dead this is Mickey and the Hartbeats, which, on this night, consisted of Jerry Garcia, Jack Casady, and Mickey, with Spencer Dryden in the first set and David Getz in the second. no Phil, Billy, or Pigpen. what a hot show though!!!! superfine.”
