Welcome to the 418th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the final and most difficult contest of May - thanks again to my broniac @schvice for his help on one of the clips! If you haven't noticed, while I may be the mouthpiece for this thing, I've got a whole crew of MJM Hall of Famers sending me juicy clips year-round. That's how we keep this series rolling despite rapidly approaching the ten year mark (!?), which, incidentally will be celebrated during MJM420 #blazeon. As usual, 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 dates of all three mystery clips. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one answers correctly in the first 24 hours, I'll post a hint. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. I hope you enjoy yourself this Memorial Day.
Note: I'm a bit random with holiday MJMs - sometimes I punt till Tuesday, sometimes I drop on Monday. Irrespective of which day I start the contest, participation can be low during holiday weeks, so there's a chance that if folks struggle with this week's puzzle I'll end up extending the contest an extra day. We'll play it by ear, but I wouldn't dawdle: there are some talented, motivated MJMers able to crack even the most difficult puzzles.
Hint: Anyone paying close attention to the original post already knows which song these clips come from, but to accelerate the process just a bit I'll add that one of these clips comes from a version not on the jam charts ... and it's an earlier version than you think!
Answer: Suprise, surprise: @Chicken_Sub_In_Your_Hand continues their amazing streak with a third straight win (and six of eleven!), this time by identifying the three "You Enjoy Myself" jams alluded to in the original post: 10/31/95, 11/24/91, and 7/31/97. Check the blog for MJM419 when the n00bs get another crack at it.
P.S.: That square ^ right there says "Mystery Jam Monday Results" and is a link to the results to all previous mystery jams - I rarely recycle jams so it may help you narrow your search; or you may be bored and want to listen back to some old jams. Regardless, it's always there every week.
