41 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

This song just proves that the band doesn't need a violin or a saxophone to make such powerful music.

43 All Along the Watchtower

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

44 Smooth Rider

Your daddy crazy with the gun in his hand.

This song is so funky!!!!

45 Proudest Monkey

I don't really see anything special to this song. The band even meant for this song to be an intro to satellite. In my opinion, it's probably the worst song on crash, but it's still better than one direction.

Best DMB Song. And Don't You DARE CHALLENGE ME. It is so calming and it feels like I'm floating. It's nice to get away from Dave Matthews Sex songs that were highly rated because of the topic. Nice to here a well done, calming song. I have a theory on what the song means. My dad lived in Charlottesville for 4 years and said that Monkey was derogatory term towards the poorer people of Charlottesville. But they lived a very peaceful and happy life. When Dave Matthews became famous he was the proudest "Monkey" for what he had done, but was wondering if he would rather still be living that peaceful life. The rest of the song is based on the conflict of him wondering if he should've took the band to where it is now. But if the "Monkey" term is wrong than this is an absolute waste of your time. And that means that my dad has been B.S.ing me all these years.

Such a shame that a song as amazing as this is this far down the list. Some of DMB's best lyrics and a spectacular instrumental along with it

46 Drunken Soldier

Great song. The heavy guitar play combined with the slow start to some great motivational lyrics - a favourite.

47 Cry Freedom
48 Lover Lay Down

Listen to the lyrics. Hear it at night with your lover. You'll understand why.

Hands down, Dave's best song.

49 Big Eyed Fish

This song is amazing, it should be higher.

Don't know his material well enough yet to pick an actual #1 but I can say right now this is his most under-appreciated. maybe if theyd had a middle ground between the lillywhite and busted stuff versions...

50 Out of My Hands
51 Captain

Awesome song!

52 So Right
53 Angel

Like wine for my soul. I get lost in this song

54 Rapunzel

This song should be much higher. It paints such a wonderful, lusty picture with the lyrics and delivers with the music!

How can people not mention Rapunzal?! It's the most brilliantt song by them! The lilting music and the classical tone coupled with the most amazing romantic lyrics! It should definitely be a part of the top ten!

56 If Only

I really like this song. I wonder why this wasn't even in the list.

57 Some Devil
58 Sweet Caroline
59 Spoon

A great closer for a great album. A sort of calm ballad with solos from the band. It shows that not only are the band members good song writers, but they are true masters at their instruments.

An absolutely stunning song, and with the banjo and Alanis' bits I'm sold. Very thought-provoking and beautiful tune that I could listen to for days on end.

60 Shake Me Like a Monkey

Love this song
