The grand finale of my crafting two abecedaries using Grateful Dead originals and cover songs.

Last August, I launched this special (continued in March) to combine two of my passions:  Grateful Dead music and the alphabet (I'm a literacy teacher).  I've been moving through the alphabet (twice), playing a round of originals and then covers whose song title begins with each letter.  Today we'll close out the special with covers spanning letters J to Y.
