  • My take on Spotify's Dave Matthews Band live series playlists.

    7 Sep 2012, 00:01 by Agent0016

    Spotify recently posted playlists of Dave Matthews Band's albums where all the songs were officially released live tracks. Being the huge DMB fan that I am, I was intrigued by this news. However, when something like this is released it always leaves things open for debate. The following is my contribution to this debate, with quick notes on my picks song by song, album by album. I limited my picks to all officially released live recordings by Dave Matthews Band, including the Warehouse fan club releases, and tracks released on pre-order bonus discs released through DMB's website, since it appears Spotify has done the same. Also, some of the playlists are missing songs from the album due to the fact that there's no officially released live version of those songs.

    Remember Two Things

    Remember Two Things is a unique case for this series. Ants Marching, Tripping Billies, and Satellite appear on later albums, which I feel is a good opportunity to highlight some earlier versions of those songs on this collection.

    # 39950 If I Ruled The World (Nas)
    If I ruled the world
    (Imagine that)
    I'd free all my sons, I love'em love'em baby
    Black diamonds and pearls
    Could it be, if you could
    be mine, we'd both shine

    50. Proud Mary (Glee Cast)
    But I never lost a minute of sleepin'
    Worryin' 'bout the way things might have been

    49. Secret Smile (Semisonic)
    Nobody knows it but you've got a secret smile
    And you use it only for me

    So use it and prove it
    Remove this whirling sadness
    I'm losing, I'm bluesing
    But you can save me from madness

    48. Driven To Tears (The Police)
    My comfortable existance is reduced to a shallow meaningless party
    Seems that when some innocent die
    All we can offer them is a page in a some magazine

    47. Prototype (Andre 3000)
    I hope that you're the one
    If not, you are the prototype
    We'll tiptoe to the sun
    And do thangs I know you like

    46. Run-Around (Blues Traveler)
    Oh sure the banner may be torn and the wind's gotten colder
