    General Commenti forget the whole story, but this should help non-diehards make sense of this song. the band was renting out some place and mr. minor was their landlord and harry hood was some restaurant that they could see from their window at the apartment. i dunno consult phish.net for the full story, i forget the full deal.

    General CommentWrong, Harry Hood is Hood Dairies' mascot. The Harry Hood sign was neon and would shut off at night. Thus the lyric, "Where do you go when the lights go out?" You can feel good about Hood is the company's slogan.

    General Commenti thought it had to do with putting milk in the refrig. and when you close the frig door the lights go out... hence where do you go when the lights go out.

    General CommentNoone can actually say for sure whether its the sign or the fridge, without talking to the band. Both are true to a point.

    General CommentMr. Minor was a previous tenant of the apartment the biys lived in, and they kept getting his mail even though he didn't live there. They talk about it in The Phish Book

    General Commentthe HArry hood mascot was a pimp who lived in the fridge and kindly greeted the people in the commercials who wanted some HOOD brand milk. In feigned sadness/curiosity, The actors alway exclaimed " Where do you go when the lights go out". or "Oot" for the canadian viewers

    General CommentThere are many different origins of this song.

    Page and Jon i believe had an apartment across from the Harry Hood factory.

    The music was written by Trey & Fish in Europe.

    The lyrics/idea of the song was inspired by all of them doing acid, and looking across at "Harry Hood" on the billboard and wondering "Where does he go." Told to me by someone who went to college with Phish and was there in the apartment when that happened.
