The Only Thing (new tune)

Passing on the stream from the New Album thread and a first go at lyrics:
https://mega.nz/file/XY5gQQgK#VYKXli...vfiq7OqzxPBX8k

The Only Thing

All of us are always tryna catch up
Call just to let me know what you think
High, this is never quite enough
Love
I was tryna get it back
I was tryna get it back

Call the doctor and
The doctor came in
Where does it hurt?
Thereís a pill for most everything
Close your eyes
Open wide
And weíll make you smile again
Some people believe in ghosts
And some believe in aliens

Itís a lonely, lonely world that you are living in
I just want to love
Some kind of love
I know cuz I feel it
Itís a lonely, lonely, world that you are living
I just want to love
More love
I know cuz I need it
Itís the only thing

Oh donít you feel like youíre tryna catch it
Fear it came a little too quick
Time, know when itís too late
Always tryna get it back
Get it back

Remember all the things
That used to real
Things to help you believe
Because you want to make sense of everything
Then thereís the first time you crack
And you think everyoneís laughing at me
All at once youíre some kind of ghost or alien

Itís a lonely, lonely world that you are living in
I just want to love
Some kind of love
I know cuz I feel it
Itís a lonely, lonely, world that you are living
We all need love
More love
You know that you need it
Itís the only thing

Itís a lonely, lonely world that you are living in
I just want to love
Some kind of love
You know cuz you feel it
Itís a lonely, lonely, world that you are living
We all need love
More love
I know that you feel it
Itís the only thing

    I dig this song. The chorus is so catchy. It reminds me of something that I cannot, for the life of me, put my finger on. An Oasis tune? The melody of the chorus somehow reminds me of Oasis live forever. Who knows. Thumbs up.

    Meh. Nothing really feels that original or interesting about it..just chords and some distortion and a Tim solo.

    Re: The Only Thing (new tune)

    First impressions: not a fan of the basic boogie rock riff. I like the "we all need love" part of the chorus, and Dave hit those falsettos well, but I doubt he can keep hitting them as the tour wears on. The solo section was underwhelming. The lyrics on the verses need work - they don't seem to really be saying anything. Who knows, maybe it'll come off better in the context of the album.

    I know what you mean. I think itís a Beatles song, which I know is super vague, but itís a Beatles vibe.

    Re: The Only Thing (new tune)

    I like the sound of the new song. With all of these songs though, with the exception of SFTW, the lyrics are so harshly put together (thatís the best way I could describe the way the lyrics sound to me). Almost as if there were a long list of words, and no matter how well they actually fit together, Dave had to use every single one of them. And couldnít go back and edit the finished product.

    And itís not that the lyrics need to be deep or even make sense. WWYS is pure nonsense, but the lyrics fit and flow and have a general feel of something that was carefully crafted.

    I think it has great potential. The chorus reminds me of some 90s song that I can't put my finger on.

    Either way, after one listen, I dig it. Could use a little violin, just saying.

    Sounds a bit like a mix between Collective Soul's "Shine/World I Know" in the verse and Tom Petty's "Last Dance With Mary Jane"/Better than Ezra's "King of New Orleans" in the chorus

    First listen, did not like it.
    Second listen, did not distinctly dislike it but still did not like it.
    Third listen, chorus grabbed me a bit.
    Fourth listen, I like it.

    Maybe.

    Was also listening to that awful video quality.

    Iím also not sure what Dave is doing lyrically sometimes. I also donít know why he continues to write songs he canít seem to sing live.

    Iíll give it several chances though.

    He sang it well, especially for a first performance, it's just a wall of sound that highlights Buddy's cheesiness

    It just sounds like a generic rock song. None of the cool stuff DMB does that separates them from the pack is exhibited here.

    Just listened. Sirius mixes have been so bad I still donít think Iím getting the full effect.

    I actually dug it more the 2nd and 3rd time through and kinda like the lyrics bc theyíre different. Too many words in the verses, which is Daveís kryptonite lately, but I donít hate it.

    Is that Buddy on backup or Rashawn? I thought it was Rashawn on the video but it was choppy. Or were you talking about his woos? Lol bc woof

    I actually liked the Buddy and Tim back and forth. His synth sounds worked on this one.

    I just didnít think Daveís falsettos sounded good and were strained, but thatís kinda normal these days. No biggie

    Considering I've posted in nearly every relevant thread how much I hated the wall of sound in BT's final years with them and how happy I am now with their sound probably not you terrible person!

    Re: The Only Thing (new tune)

    Iím always happy to hear brand new songs, always. Having said that, the only part of the song I thought didnít work well was the Tim/Buddy duel. That worked really well on the Crush from LT 13 with Roi and Tim. For this song, that shredding vs. whatever Buddy is playing isnít the way. I do like Buddy. I like Timís layered stuff over Daveís guitar playing. The straight up hair metal shredding stuff, for me, isnít quite my tempo.
