Though it occupied its proper place at the 10/31/94 show as the eighteenth song on The Beatles’ White Album, this song was not actually played in its entirety. The ominously repeated main riff to this Lennon/McCartney tune served as the background music for the stage appearance of road manager Brad Sands, who (wearing Fishman’s dress) received a cake for his Halloween birthday.

Phish, "Birthday" – 10/31/94, Glens Falls, NY
