was Salvation the really up-tempo number that sounded like a bizarro KayBee Toys jingle?

they played it at a VMAs and I remember the clip used in retrospectives was the "ah-haha ah-haha ah-haha ah-haha" part sang really out of key and the singer failing to encourage a crowd singalong.

I actually remember the first time I heard What Would You Say pretty clearly. I was starting to become aware of "funk" at the time, and I was also a bit of a muso/guitar nerd, and I remember thinking "this guy plays really good funk rhythm guitar and the drummer is tight and this doesn't sound like anything I've heard...so why is it so corny and bad?"

I also remember thinking "what the hell is wrong with this guy?"

Yeah, I feel like some people were voting for DMB vs. Cranberries rather than the songs themselves. Should've been 'Zombie' in a walk.

no way. though i don't particularly like DMB, i'd take them over the cranberries in a second. difference here is that i actually like "zombie", and "what would you say" is one of my least favorite DMB tunes (of the few i'm familiar with).

I would venture to guess that DMB has more tolerable songs than Cranberries

^reminds me of WWYS lyrics:

Up and down the puppies' hair
Fleas and ticks jump everywhere
'Cause of original sin

Down the hill fell Jack and Jill
And you came tumbling after
'Cause of original sin

Wipe away the tears
Drink a hope to happy years
And you may find
A lifetime's passed me by

What would you say
Don't drop the big one
If you a monkey on a string
well Don't cut my life line
If you a doggie on a chain
Don't bite the mailman
What would you say

I was there when the bear
Ate his head, thought it was a candy
Everyone goes in the end

Knock knock on the door
Who's it for, theres nobody in here
Look in the mirror my friend

I don't understand at best
I cannot speak for all the rest
at mornin rise a lifetime's passed me by

What would you say
Dont' drop the big one
If you a monkey on a string
well Don't cut my life line
If you a doggie on a chain
Don't bite the mailman
What would you say

Every dog has its day every day has its way
Of being forgotten - "Mom, it's my birthday!"
whatd you say (then what could you say)
what would you say

I was there when the bear
Ate his head, thought it was a candy
Everyone goes in the end

Knock knock on the door
Who's it for, theres nobody in here
Look in the mirror my friend

I don't understand at best
I cannot speak for all the rest
at mornin rise a lifetime's passed me by

what would you say?

Orange wild-eyed muppet a major influence on Dave's delivery I think.

"with their tanks and their bombs/and their bombs and their guns" vs. "up and down the puppies' hair/fleas and ticks jump everywhere/cause of original sin"

I never noticed it because of Dave's goobery up-down delivery.

results are some bullshit imo

Do people here hate "Dreams?" I figured that was generally considered an ok song.

billstevejim, Monday, 26 March 2012 02:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

kind of not that bad... better than pretty much any Dave jam

billstevejim, Monday, 26 March 2012 02:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

I do love Linger more than any DMB song; only "Two Step" comes close...

"i drink too much" makes me want to drink too much

It's probably because they were totally ubiquitous when I was 13-17, the age at which your brain is highly vulnerable to radio hits, but I kinda like all DMB's mid-'90s stuff. Cranberries aren't too bad, either. Someone from the post-Pearl Jam crop of assholes like Bush is way more odious to me.

When I was 15 people would tell me I look like Dolores, but that's because I had short red hair and people are unimaginative/love making celeb comparisons.

OTM about having a hard time really hating those mid-90s Dave singles. We should do worst Bush single or something.

Doctor Casino, Monday, 26 March 2012 03:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

Bush singles >>> DMB singles, but I'm something of a grunge acolyte...

dies irate (loves laboured breathing), Monday, 26 March 2012 04:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

the first 7 bush singles are good.
