    I really don't care much about lyrics if the music is good. I liked it. Out of the three new songs this is the best. OATB was also good. I wish SFTW was full band.

    Re: Walk Around the Moon Lyrics

    I guess the how can I go to bed part doesn’t bother me when I consider if I was f’d up in my younger days and what I might be missing out on if I did. Kinda how I hear it when he sings it so it’s fitting.

    It was blue, and it was red
    Found a new door
    Open my head
    How can I go to bed
    Think I'll walk 'round the moon instead

    Re: Walk Around the Moon Lyrics

    Just listened to this for the third time. When I heard it live on Sirius I was not impressed. I like it now and the more I listen the more I can imagine the background vocals fading, the rest of the band filling in and the outro maturing into something nice.

    Re: Walk Around the Moon Lyrics

    Absolutely love this new tune. It's funky, it's weird, the lyrics aren't atrocious, Buddy's backup vocals are a great touch, and I love Jeff gettin a little flute action in at the end. Singing From the Windows and Ocean and the Butterfly are good, but those I see as pretty static -- won't be as fun to hear them grow as it will be for WATM. Makes me very excited for the new material!!!

    Re: Walk Around the Moon Lyrics

    As I continue listening to it, I like it. The one thing that I keep noticing/feeling is that the lyrics seem rushed. Feel like they should let the music breathe a bit. For instance, at 2:25 of this video, when the band kicks in, I feel like they should go a bar or two of just the music/band and then Dave should come in with the lyrics.

    The vocals in the beginning were really bad, but I wonder if it was an issue with his monitors. It was really off key, improved as the song went along.

    Also I remember the first performance of Seven, he sounded awful. Hopefully he’ll make adjustments in later performances.

    How long do you want everyone to wait and how many times do we have to listen to the song before we are allowed to state our opinion on it?

    This was the very first time this song was ever played live. JFC, can we calm down and give the band some time work shit out. This song will undoubtedly get better the more they play it. There is a lot to work with here.

    BTW, this will be another Seven - cool song for now, played every show and hated later.
    Reminds me of Black and Blue Bird. I remember people liking that one when it came out, then when it came around live it seems to have soured.

    I'd be surprised if even a decent minority feel that way. I love Black and Blue Bird. Only disappointment is the truncated album version.

    He just made an observation. Don't be so sensitive. Opinion away.

    Re: Walk Around the Moon Lyrics

    I know many of my personal friends that soured on big whiskey the first few years or so simply do to it being played to death. Many of them now say how much that album has had staying power over the years. Just because something gets plays on tour to death for a couple years, for us that have those songs for rest of our lives won’t really care about that eventually when the band is done. When it’s done we’ll wish we had bitched less when they were around.

    Not saying we should love everything they do, I’m not that guy and hate most of CT. But lately the genuine hatred for AFTW and now these new songs after a 24 hour period boggles my mind a bit. Part of me wonders if it’s even possible for them to make something good because it feels like a huge faction will hate no matter what they do even if it’s actually good.

    And I like AFTW. Vastly more than BWGGK.

    And yes, unless it’s BTCS Part 2, a lot of fans are going to hate it.

    I’m one who says this isn’t DMB of the 90’s, they’re not gonna make that music, so I try to approach new stuff with an open mind. But then again, as a parent, I can get a lot of where Dave is coming from with a lot of the “getting older”/retrospective vibe from the newer songs.

    I think this song is really cool. The taper pull makes a world of difference. The Sirius version last night had me questioning. Hearing what Stefan is actually doing is really cool, particularly in the Outro.

    Where’s the taper recording? I thought we used to be able to do it from the hub app but couldn’t find it.

    Woops. It’s Xcacels rip that Chad posted in his thread. 100x better than Sirius.

    Song is great. I think the lyrics aren’t 100% right in here, and yet so many people are bashing it. I wish DMB fans actually liked DMB.

    Does anyone know if they turned down Buddy's vocals on WATM for the Charlotte show? He was too much the first go around.
