About You Enjoy Myself

You Enjoy Myself, commonly abbreviated to "YEM" is a Phish song written by Trey Anastasio. It is the band's most frequently played song, having been featured — as of August 2012 — at about 35% of their 1,566 shows. The song is also one of the oldest in Phish's catalog, having been first performed live on February 3, 1986. Keyboardist Page McConnell revealed on Nightline with Ted Koppel that "You Enjoy Myself" was his favorite Phish song. The song was featured on Phish's first album Junta, although a shorter, a cappella version appeared on their 1986 self-titled debut commonly known as The White Tape. "You Enjoy Myself" is a staple of the group's popular live performances, and while the version that appears on Junta is under ten minutes long, live versions (especially after 1995) have regularly exceeded 25 minutes in length. The longest live version of the song to date, performed on October 31, 1995 during the band's Halloween show in Rosemont, IL, clocks in at over 40 minutes. The show was officially released as Live Phish Volume 14.

They reunited March 2009 for Phish in Hampton, a series of three consecutive concerts played in the Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, Virginia, and have since resumed performing regularly. more »
