MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 368

Welcome to the 368th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the fourth and hardest of March. 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 songs and dates of the 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. Good luck!

Hint: Phish has covered a certain color-themed band quite a bit, though I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s any colour you like...

Answer: And then there were... 22? The Blog's favorite math professor, @ChalkDustTeacher, has done it again and catapulted himself downtown straight into the MJM Hall of Fame with his seventh win. This week, he needed the hint (thanks to @Dog_Faced_Boy for handling that for us!) but saw right through it to nail down the three jams played at shows feature Pink Floyd covers: 6/17/11 "Rock and Roll," 5/1/93 "Weekapaug Groove" (listen to the whole thing - it's psych ward level insanity), and the 9/12/00 "Down with Disease." This week's MJM should serve as a reminder that outside of the 11/2/98 Dark Side of the Moon cover, Phish has paid homage to their forefathers more than a few dozen times (see: many of the "HYHU" > "Bike" > "HYHU" Fishman features, the aforementioned tournament final featuring the "Mike's" -> "Breathe" from 10/25/95, or any of the "Great Gig in the Sky" renditions from '93-'94).

@ChalkDustTeacher burst onto the scene during the MMJM tournament a couple years back – he was a virtual nobody, and hadn't yet won a single MJM. We were dubious of the performance by a rookie, wondering what sort of fingerprinting algorithms he may have written to buoy his just-short performance. But he quickly put those thoughts to rest by winning his first and second MJMs back-to-back a few weeks later, finishing with three wins in the four months following his Wookiee of the Year performance. But then he disappeared for all of 2018, and we thought he was the latest to burn out and not fade away. Some heard he was working on Hilbert's Problems, others said he may have been searching for stable solutions to the Navier-Stokes equation. It's unclear if there's a rational answer to exactly what he was up to, but what we know for sure is that 2019 brought him out of the Great White Woodwork to win four of the next ten (!) MJMs to finally put the theories to bed. Congrats @ChalkDustTeacher! One question as you hop aboard the cruise ship towards the vault: do you know what MJM Emeriti smell like? Depends...

HarborSeal I haven't checked, but assuming you are right on these clips, congratulations. That makes you emeritus now, yes? Well done.

I'm pretty confident that they are correct. If so, then yes, I am emeritus!

Heh. It's the first of the month next week, so probably not! But let's see if I can't do in April.

MiguelSanchez Nice work mang!!

Need to dust up on that Rock and Roll. Sounded snazzy and I don’t remember that one very well, outside of my memory of it being favorable.
