Yay for DMB songs!

We are dancing our first dance to a DMB song…not sure I want to spill which one!

We are having dinner music be old school…Frank Sinatra, etc.  So DMB won’t be in our dinner playlist.  Also, not sure how much of their music is good for dancing…I will play You & Me for a dance song… any other good ones to use during reception?

What about I”ll back you up?  So romantic!

Even though you are a USC fan…I’ll give you my opinion 🙂  (born and raised Bruin here)

I love love love Satellite.  I wish my FH didn’t hate DMB so that we could play it!  The lyrics are so sweet!  I know its not a conventional love song, but it could work.

My favorite DMB song of all time is Two Step…its way too fast for a first dance, but it could be played at some point during your reception.  Again, the lyrics blow me away:

Say, my love, I came to you with best intentions
You laid down and gave to me just what I’m seeking
Love, you drive me to distraction
Hey my love do you believe that we might last a thousand years
Or more if not for this,
Our flesh and blood
It ties you and me right up
Tie me down

Celebrate we will
Because life is short but sweet for certain
We’re climbing two by two
To be sure these days continue
These things we cannot change

Hey, my love, you came to me like wine comes to this mouth
Grown tired of water all the time
You quench my heart and you quench my mind

Celebrate we will
Because life is short but
Sweet for certain
We’re climbing two by two
To be sure these days continue
The things we cannot
Celebrate, you and me, climbing two by two, to be sure
These days continue, things we cannot change

Oh, my love I came to you
With best intentions
You laid down and gave to me
Just what I’m seeking

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…
Things we cannot change

Haha!  I always forget about South Carolina…I can get behind the Gamecocks!  (As a UCLA girl, when I hear USC, the first thing that comes into my mind is Southern Cal)

Crash is a great song. Almost anything by DMB is great! All of the songs are so sincere, genuine and… meaningful. I just love Dave Matthews Band!

You and Me- for sure.

Some of the lyrics to Crash are a bit inappropriate.
