Best Dave Matthews Band Songs

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Rapunzel 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!

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 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

64 I'll Back You Up I'll Back You Up

The first song Dave ever wrote - best love song ever written.

65 Too Much Too Much

Another song I think should be higher. It's a great concert song. Dave's statement on American greed with a great funky sound!

66 Anyone Seen The Bridge? Anyone Seen The Bridge?
67 Work It Out Work It Out
68 The Song that Jane Likes The Song that Jane Likes
69 Squirm Squirm
70 Steady As We Go Steady As We Go

This is a beautiful song. It should be higher than 71.

71 Grux Grux
72 Cigarette Lit
73 My Baby Blue My Baby Blue
74 Minarets Minarets

Can't believe this hasn't been mentioned - classic DMB. Top 20 for sure.

75 Everyday Everyday

I cried when saw that this wasn't on the list

76 Lying In the Hands of God Lying In the Hands of God
77 Belly Belly Nice Belly Belly Nice

Paunchy lyrics, feel good sounds, really just a great jam.

78 Dive In Dive In
79 Dodo Dodo

This is a light song with deep thoughts. My son always thought it was a sad song because he worried about the last dodo bird.

80 Baby Baby

I can just see Dave singing this lullaby like song to his kids before they go to sleep.
