96. Grateful Dead - Ripple

Found on: American Beauty (1970)

Honestly, I wouldn't be including this song if not for its use in the final episode of Freaks and Geeks, wherein Lindsey Weir finds herself enraptured by the American Beauty album and eventually decides to spend her summer following the Dead (instead of doing college prep.). One might question her taste, but not the power of music to change lives.

It wasn't Ripple in Freaks and Geeks. I think it was Box of Rain.

I think it was Box of Rain in Freaks and Geeks, not Ripple.

But it's such a good song. As is Box of Rain.

Based on your comments about this song, I question YOUR taste.
