Dave Matthews Band

by Monday, September 15, 2014

For almost two and a half years, Dave Matthews Band is all I got to listen to! Because of one OBSESSED sister.

She had all her CD cases filled only with DMB Cd’s, she would drive across the country with her friend Nathan to see any DMB gig that she possibly could, she became a complete music Nazi, I was not allowed to touch the car stereo or the music system at home EVER!! And I was systematically educated in which song he sung in what manner at which venue/gig.

Such intense exposure to DMB obviously irritated me initially but how can ANYONE resist the awesomeness that is the Dave Matthews Band! Pretty soon, I was completely hooked, and a fan for life.

Thanks to Maddy and our recent chat about DMB this weekend – the urge to listen to them again came back and I’ve been tripping alllllllllllllllllllllllllll morning. 🙂


So I’m just going to concede defeat as I can’t possibly listen to them all on YouTube, and just share a few of my all-time favourite tracks here.

Do me a favour – plug in your headphones and listen to each one. It’s a trip like no other. 🙂

CRASH INTO ME (Weekend On The Rocks):

*goosebumps* This was the song that made me fall in love with them.

The Space Between: 

This one remains my favourite DMB song till now. The lyrics. Sigh. 🙂

You cannot quit me so quickly
There’s no hope in you for me
No corner you couldn’t squeeze me
But I’ve got all the time for you love

The space between the tears we cry
Is the laughter keeps us coming back for more
The space between the wicked lies we tell
And hope to keep safe from the pain

But will I hold you again?

These fickle, fuddled words confuse me
Like, will it rain today?
Waste the hours with talking, talking
These twisted games we’re playing

We’re strange allies with warring hearts
What a wild-eyed beast you’ll be
The space between the wicked lies we tell
And hope to keep safe from the pain

But will I hold you again?
Will I hold?

Look at us spinning out in the madness of a roller coaster
You know you went off like the Devil in a church
In the middle of a crowded room
All we can do, my love is hope we don’t take this ship down

But the space between where you’re smilin’ high
Is where you’ll find me if I get to go
The space between the bullets in our firefight
Is where I’ll be hiding, waiting for you

The rain that falls splash in your heart
Ran like sadness down the window into your room
The space between our wicked lies
Is where we hope to keep safe from pain

Take my hand ’cause we’re walking out of here
Oh, right out of here, love is all we need, dear

The space between what’s wrong and right
Is where you’ll find me hiding, waiting for you
The space between your heart and mine
Is the space we’ll fill with time

The space between
The space between

And some other favourites…

Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die!

Until next time – keep Being Awesome! 🙂
