River all the way. This is an excellent cover by the great uber-drummer Buddy Miles.

I guess both these song titles fall under a broader category of titles that refer to places of particular significance described in generic terms, like Under The Bridge and All Along The Watchtower.

I'm gonna have to go with River as well. Down by the water is my favorite song right now, but I've been through this enough times before to know that won't last. Down by the River has like an 8 minute guitar solo in it. Too cool.

Down by the River: 2 votes
Down by the Water: 1 vote

Down On The Corner is just an undeniably catchy song with a chorus that begs you to sing a long, or at least bop your head/tap your feet in a rhythmic fashion.

Down With Disease is one of my least favorite songs by my absolute favorite band, but it does have two awesome "mini-solos" if you will, one very rock n roll solo from 2:27 - 2:45, and one more spacy, distinctly jam band solo that starts at 3:10 and goes until the end of the song. And the chorus, first from 1:00-1:25, is also pretty melodic and catchy if you ask me. An acquired taste for me though.

I nominate the former song.
