Daily Dose of Dave

Dreamgirl- Live in Portugal- Live Trax Vol. 10

Probably the poppiest Dave Matthews Band song, there’s always been a lot of grumbling among the hardcore fans whenever it makes a set list. Especially when the band was playing it at almost every show. My rebuttal was always that, “When DMB stops touring, you’ll be begging for even ‘Dreamgirl’…” Sure enough, when the band took the year off, I saw numerous, ‘I’d kill to even just hear Dreamgirl’ comments.
I feel that it’s a solid cross-over song, that helped bring some new blood into the fold. This version is pretty by the book, proving that sometimes less is more.
