SONG: Dave Matthews Band

“Mercy”

I’m really diggin this new single from DMB. The first minute or so reminds me quite a bit of John Hiatt’s “Have A Little Faith In Me” but there’s enough of a freshness to it to keep me interested. DMB’s new album, Away From The World, will be out in September.

LYRICS: Dave Matthews Band

“Two Step”

It’s that time of year when I start listening to a lot more Dave Matthews Band, Jack Johnson, Bob Marley, 311, etc…all that chill, summer music that melts you into your seat (or into your beach towel). While listening to this song the other day, the lyrics really jumped out at me:

“Celebrate we will
because life is short but sweet, for certain
we’re climbing two by two
to be sure these days continue
things we cannot change”

Dave Matthews Band – “Shake Me Like A Monkey”

I was listening to Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King the other day and loving this tune. The music is pretty intense, and some of the lyrics seem suggestive, but the chorus has a beautiful message that I’ve really been feeling lately. Love and light do seem to be the answer to everything…and at such a busy, stressful time of year, it’s important for me to keep coming back to that.

“Do you know what it is
To feel the light of love inside you?
And all the darkness falls away
If you feel the way I feel
Then I believe we have the answer
That I’ve been searching for tonight”

Dave Matthews Band – “Best Of What’s Around”

I’ve heard this tune a million times, but occasionally the lyrics really grab me and take hold. The song has such a wonderful sentiment and it’s one that you can pretty much apply to anything going on in life. I think that’s part of  what makes music so universal…the words are there in writing, but open to interpretation. Yea, I like that.

“Hey, my friend
It seems your eyes are troubled
Care to share your time with me
Would you say you’re feeling low and so
A good idea would be to get it off of your mind

See, you and me
Have a better time than most can dream
Have it better than the best
And so can pull on through
Whatever tears at us
Whatever holds us down
And if nothing can be done
We’ll make the best of what’s around

Turns out not where but who you’re with
That really matters
That really matters
And hurts not much when you’re around
When you’re around

And if you hold on tight
To what you think is your thing
You may find you’re missing all the rest…”

Dave Matthews Band – “Satellite”

“Satellite… strung from the moon…”

Aside from the fact that I absolutely love this song, it seems I’ve really got a knack for being in the car at the right moments lately… when a certain song comes on the radio that just nails my mood or the atmosphere. Tonight, as I stared up at the HUGE moon in the sky, this song started up…

“Winter’s cold… spring erases…”
