Welcome to the 467th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the fifth and final MJM of May - shout-out to MJM Emeritus @WayIFeel for this week's puzzle! The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of both mystery clips, which are connected by a theme. 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. Stay safe!

Hint: Same year, same state.

Answer: Congrats to @lysergic on his second win, this time using the hint(s) to narrow down the search to jams played in Tennessee in 1994: 4/25/94 "Split Open and Melt" and 5/3/94 "Slave to the Traffic Light." Thanks again to @WayIFeel for the excellent puzzle and we'll see you next week for MJM468.

if there are no signs of life later today I'll circle back and comment again, but some folks are already on the chase and I don't want to shave their lead unnecessarily

I had to google it. It's lyrics to Arrested Development's song "Tennessee". A pretty generous set of hints. There should be an asterisk on the blog's loss on this one.

Nice win! I was scouring '92-'93 and gave up! Nice job on the hint, too! I didn't even realize it was a hint . . . I thought it was just @UCPete whining.

mcgrupp81 Love the Phish Bliss moments. The Slave clip gave me the O Mio Babbino Caro feels; the intro of the 5/27/94 performance before the opera singer starts singing.
