    I also relate this song to my parents' deaths, and it actually helps me grieve. An amazing song. Sometimes I just need to let it all out; that's when I play Box of Rain and purge my heart.

  2. indiaink3 says:

    this song was lovingly played acoustically by a guy at a good friends funeral. very touching

  3. nautn says:

    Wonder story. I had the same feelings as each of my parents were suffering with cancer.

  4. TheJohnnyCotts says:

    I remember reading about this in Phil Lesh's book, and he said in a short span they lost Phil's father, Jerry's mother and both of Bob's parents.

    Wow that is so cool. Great video. All these years later Phil still gets choked up thinking about it... It is definitely my favorite studio recording by the Dead. I would love to have heard it live back when Phil could still sing. You forget what a great voice he once had. Weir mentions it in one of the books, that Phil just blew his voice out and it never really came back.

    Maybe you're tired and broken, Your tongue is twisted with with words half spoken and thoughts unclear. What do you want me to do to do for you to see you through? A box of rain will ease the pain and love will see you through. Thank you, Phil. You sang what my heart felt but I could not say when I too waited for my mother to die.

    I put a copy of this song in my grandmothers casket when shepassed away. this song is definetly the most personal of all dead tunes. I love you Gram miss you everyday.

    box of rain is gay and sucks. ripple, candyman, till the morning comes, and friend of the devil are the best songs on the album

  10. cheeksrules says:

    Love will see you thru.........

    At 2:10 I just wanna give Phil a hug!

    @TheJohnnyCotts Plus Mickey left for a few years, as he was distraught about his father stealing thousands of dollars from the band, and Pigpen was beginning to show signs of the illness that would take his life a couple of years later.

  13. TheTMP2 says:

    just got goose bumps when he was singing without music on the bus

  14. TheGlimmertwins2 says:

    @royalnaz1 What is the point of putting such a negative spin on such an honest,heartfelt moment?Also,you do not strike people as very open-minded when you use the term "gay" as an insult.

  15. notmefuckingname says:

    2:18 is so fuckin cool

  16. thomasslaff says:

    I cry everytime I hear this

  17. pleased9 says:

    @royalnaz1 ~~ Dude, that's pretty shallow, ~ when the truth is, ... that it's a very deep song.
