DeadTest™ Vol. 46 – Into The Close

We value your input so please make comments at the end of this post.

Welcome back to JerryLand, where the sun always shines! Here’s to hoping the 46th volume of the DeadTest™ provides a little distraction from the current craziness in the world.

This latest test challenges you to correctly identify songs from the Dead’s expansive repertoire by listening to the final seconds of 10 live performances.

Easy, right? These are well-known songs – nothing the vast majority of Deadheads wouldn’t know – so we should see some high scores on this one. Although in my opinion it’s much easier to call a song’s opening than to call its close. But hey, that’s just me.

From all of us at SongMango, stay healthy and safe!
