Daily Dose of Dave

The Stone
Live in New York City

‘The Stone’, to me, has a dark, almost gothic feel to it. The deep tones echo the deep lyrics, yet there is a softness that is threaded throughout. In this version, like many others, the song is finished with an interpolation of Elvis Presley’s ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’, which is like the icing on the cake, leaving a sweet taste in your mouth to ruminate on.

Digging a Ditch
Live from Wrigley Field

Sometimes you can’t help but dig yourself a bit deeper into a self dug hole, a common problem of mine, and yet sometimes wisdom prevails and and you can keep your tongue still…. again, not a regular occurrence on my part. This song has always been a bit of an anthem to me, in my own interpretation a reminder that sometimes, even when you’ve already dug a hole, you don’t have to bury yourself.
