Walk Around the Moon

The more I listen to this song, the more I dislike it. It feels empty, the lyrics aren't engaging at all and the only thing redeeming about it at all is Jeff. I wanted to make a poll to see how people feel. What do you think about the song?

    I think it’s very good. Shame to see people down on it.

    I smoked pot every single day of my life for about 6 years straight...maybe something more psychedelic than that? I feel like the song is about a mushroom. Red "dress" , polka dots..

    I like it, but only mildly right now. It hasn’t clicked for me yet. Very interested to hear the studio version.

    I like it, but I don't love it. Would like to see how it sounds after a few more performances, and the studio cut.

    Indifferent. It is what it is. Not great, not terrible. I much prefer Shake Me Like a Monkey and Squirm to it. Seven, even.

    I'm not feeling the beginning part of the song, love pretty much everything from "jump back" on, really solid tune. I like it more than Bismarck.

    If Walk Around the Moon were a meal, I'd have to pair it with a tall glass of Trouble With You. Who's hungry?

    Iím not sure yet. I feel like Dave sings too much on it. Wish the song breathed a bit more. But thereís parts of it I like.

    d). Didn't listen/haven't heard

    kind of afraid, after reading these posts. Might wait a bit to give the song a chance to evolve. But saying goes, you can polish a turd...

    Of the 28 people who have responded yes or no, 24 of them have responded yes, and the takeaway is that's a scary turd?

    The comments tend to be more harsh than the polls. If you didnít see the poll and just read the comments you might think itís 50/50. I think thatís usually the nature of message boards.

    I havenít listened to the tape yet, but saw it both Friday and Saturday. I liked it Friday, loved it Saturday, and now itís stuck in my head. I hope to see it again in Alpharetta.

    Iím very happy to have a new song that features Jeff on the flute.

    It's interesting. Much in the same way "She" was on CT. If I was at a show, I wouldn't say "Nice" when it started. I would say, "Oh yeah, this song."

    Re: Walk Around the Moon

    I'm a fan, it's been the song stuck in my head the most after seeing both shows. There are a couple parts I'm not huge on, like the way he was attempting to sing the "round and round inside of my head" part and the quick transition into "I know, you got." I think it would benefit from letting it breath a bit more there. But it definitely picks up in the "big stand, jump back" section and Jeff's flute part and the whole outro is great. I do think this will end up being a better studio track though and I'm excited to eventually hear that version.

    Re: Walk Around the Moon

    Copperpot's mix gave me a completely new take on the song. This will be an absolute studio monster. Live, it definitely needs a little polishing, but it's very vintage weird Dave. Drive in Drive out meets The Riff.

    Voted Yes, but am just slightly leaning that way at the moment. Need to hear studio, and a more polished live version. Kind of worried that Dave advertised this as one of the best he's ever written. Leaves me a bit wary of the other new unheard songs.
