Just in case you don't remember the embarrassing incident two years ago, Dave Matthews tour bus dumped 800 pounds of liquid waste into the Chicago River and ON TOP of river boat tourists. I knew the man was full of crap, but 800 pounds worth? Whoa!
Let me clarify, I'm no fan of Dave Matthews. I would rather wear my most grossly uncomfortable tight-fitting, boob-squishing, underwire-poking bra for 7 straight days before I ever want to hear 'What Would You Say?' again. I'm serious. Courtesy of FM radio and even XM Satellite radio, I've heard an entire lifetime quota of that song in just a few short years. The song, 'Crash,' is no romantic ditty either, despite the masses of swooning trendy suburbanites who chose that as "their" couple song. 'Ants Marching,' makes me want to march too..........right over a cliff.
Dave Matthews has also won entry into my "Just Shut Up And Sing Already" exclusive group for politically charged, yet sadly hypocritical entertainers. The man seems hell bent on taking over kid movies too. We've watched 3 films this past year all starring Dave Matthews posturing the only facial expression he knows how to pull off, the constipated grimace.
Like, Lisa Loeb, though, I do loooooovvvveee at least one DMB song. Yes, 'American Baby' rocks me in a gentle way I haven't known since my days as a suckling infant. In my opnion, 'American Baby' didn't garner nearly enough airplay upon its release in 2006. So, if you only find it in your heart to listen to one Dave Matthews song this year, make sure it's 'American Baby!'
