"Too Much" is another video that poisoned me against the song, preferred the slightly watered down version Tripping Billies

"Crash Into Me" is an okay track, but it's a little romcom'ed out. "Two Step" is still fantastic and gets my vote.

I remember hearing "So Much To Say" on the radio as a kid and being like, dude, wtf, you obviously don't have all that much to say because you just keep repeating those 4 words

"Satellite" was good tho, I always dug it and didn't even realize it was by the same band until later

"So Much To Say" is kinda dope imo, might get my vote

this is just DM, not DMB - but is the only song I have ever heard by him that didn't make me want to stick my head in a vice

Grotjahn in the Moma (Pillbox), Friday, 25 March 2011 15:46 (3 years ago) Permalink

the only DMB song that tends to get stuck in my head is "Gravedigger," their minor alt-rock radio hit from 2004. the chorus goes, "gravedigger, when you dig my grave, bury me shallow, so I can feel the rain," and each verse is a biography of an everyday person who lived and died without fame or riches. it's DMB's very own Spoon River Anthology, and it really makes you stop and think about the fragility of human life.

by comparison, all of the songs listed here are stone-cold classics & I would give my soul to wipe "Gravedigger" from my memory forever.

Why I Am

I read this as "Why I Am (You and Me)"

Rich Lolwry (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Friday, 25 March 2011 15:49 (3 years ago) Permalink

i heard "Why I Am" a couple times last year (which is odd because it apparently never charted) and it was kinda nice, similar to the early stuff i like.

"Gravedigger" is from the same DM solo album Pillbox posted a song from iirc.

"Don't Drink The Water" was a nearly "Lakini's Juice"-level buzzkill in terms of their career at the time, i don't know how it would sound to me now but when i think of it i mostly lol

Lakini's Juice by Live was supposed to sound like Helmet. The only thing it had in common w DDtW were that they were both weirdly melodramatic alt-rock songs

well lets be fair, both of them are absolutely terrible so they do have that in common

What Would You Say
Jimi Thing
Ants Marching
Satellite
Too Much
So Much To Say
Tripping Billies
Don't Drink The Water

^^^ much as i'd like to i can't really hate on any of these, hooky as hell (although his vocal stylings almost sink "Satellite") and fuck man, i owned the CDs like a million other people. Like it or not, Under The Table And Dreaming is going to be in fucktons of "classic album" canon lists ten years from now if it's not already. Granted, the lows are really low, and they overreach when they try to make Serious Statements. I let "Don't Drink The Water" in because it's just so magnificently goofy. But ehhh, none of those up there are so bad and hated, for me.

I will admit that I would race to change the channel on "Ants Marching" but I'll still give it credit for being very well-constructed.
