Best Dave Matthews Band Songs

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Hunger for the Great Light

Superb as always. Dave Matthews voice and writing abilities are unbelievabl amazing!

62 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!

64 I'll Back You Up

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

65 Anyone Seen the Bridge?
66 Work It Out
67 Seek Up

This might well be my favorite song of all time. I will never forget the day in the fall of 1997 when Live at Red Rocks was released and I scurried down to the college record shop to pick up this album. I went home, put on the headphones, lied down on my bed, and was immediately mesmerized with Seek Up at track #1. I was blown away, particularly by the intro. The energy and richness of the instrumentals and the meaning of the lyrics is something that continues to move me even today after listening to it many hundreds of times, including live in concert on eight occasions (including this summer, 2016). Definitely an underappreciated masterpiece from DMB. In addition to the incredible Red Rocks version, if you can locate the June 8, 1997 version it is also amazing.

The most beautifull song I've ever listened to, just plain eargasmic - maynardcheech

68 The Song that Jane Likes
69 Squirm
70 Steady as We Go

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

71 Grux
72 Cigarette Lit
73 My Baby Blue
74 Minarets

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

75 Everyday

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

76 Lying In the Hands of God
77 Belly Belly Nice

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

78 Dive In
79 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

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