Welcome to the 281st edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the first* and easiest of July. The winner will receive two MP3 download codes courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of the mystery clip. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!
*Reminder: As with every first MJM of the month now, only folks who have never won an MJM are allowed to answer before the hint. If you have never won an MJM, please answer as a blog comment below. If you have previously won an MJM and you'd like to submit a guess before the hint, you may do so by PMing me – if no one has answered correctly by the time I'm ready to post the hint, the first correct answer submitted by PM will be awarded the win. If you're not sure if you've won before, look in the MJM Results spreadsheet linked below.
Note: I may not have WiFi access on Tuesday, so if this week's MJM goes to hint I may leave the hint as a comment on the blog. Happy July Fourth!
Hint: I guess you could say I got a little apathetic with this MJM.
Answer: Congrats to first-time winner @ThirdSound, whose apathy detectors were in full force in identifying the 6/20/97 "I Don't Care," not just a song whose title reeks of apathy, but also a song that was used in the MJM just last week. I don't care. For his efforts, @ThirdSound takes home two download codes. Stay tuned on Monday for MJM282, when we go Double Double Animal Style.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
