24 The Idea of You

Such a relatable song. Great instrumentals. Great writing. Dave's mini guitar extraordinary

25 Stay or Leave Stay or Leave

Beautiful song about loving someone and then they leave. I get tears in my eyes every time I hear this song. Thinking back about the good, good love and the times we had and then one leaves the relationship. This song captures that so well.

Beyond moving, emotional, and totally relatable.

26 Typical Situation Typical Situation
27 One Sweet World One Sweet World

Best DMB song in my opinion. Sums up what the band is all about, just enjoying life and all it's mystery. Not taking our world for granted.

28 Say Goodbye Say Goodbye

This with #41 are the best. say goodbye sums up many a "relationship" when I was in college which when this came out. Just perfect

This song has an amazing intro. I am not a drummer, but I am so impressed with the drumming toward the end of this intro. I also love the song.

This is the most complicated, underplayed song in his amazing list of soul bearing tune... how is it not in the top five?

Ever wanted to be more than friends, but just for an evening? This is your new anthem.

32 So Much To Say So Much To Say

Can't believe no one included this

34 Grace Is Gone Grace Is Gone

Why is it this low? One of their best in my opinion.

Yep Top ten song by DMB, and Lillywhite Sessions is the best album.

35 American Baby American Baby

Ahhh American baby brings back so many childhood memories! Whether it be spending the night with my father and him blasting this great tune in his car. Those moments and this song will stay with me forever.

It's only slightly disappointing that this song doesn't place at least a little higher on the 'Dave countdown'. And just a bit more disappointing that American Baby is just ahead in the numbers. This song is beautiful. Especially live... but only as much when the intro is done its justice. This list is completely subjective, at any point in time my number one might place somewhere in the 30s... another day I'm a typical Dave Matthews fan and put Ants Marching or 41... or usually, The Stone... right at the top. The beautiful thing about their music is how fantastic ALL of the catalog is. Is there such a thing as a 'bad' DMB song? Sure... there's honestly one or two in my opinion. This jam band makes music about as good as anyone ever has.

37 Stolen Away On 55th & 3rd Stolen Away On 55th & 3rd

For me, hands down one of the band's most beautiful songs.

38 Gravedigger

It's an amazing song. I can see Dave Matthews strolling through a cemetery and being inspired to write this song.

Dude Bartender, Seek up are way better songs, that encompass passing on.

Come on! This is definitely his best song! Listen to it and vote for it

40 All Along the Watchtower All Along the Watchtower

When someone does it better than Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix, it's gotta be #1
