It’s Tunes with Tuesday! Bring on the smiles as we laugh, dance around the room, and enjoy one another’s company.
Dave Matthews Band is an American rock band that I admire. Lead singer Dave Matthews writes songs that offer a pure perspective on the world around us.
He does not require electronic sounds to improve his voice. Instead, he looks to his guitar to light up the lines he says ever so softly. His voice is original, as is his spirit.
In a world full of clones, I really value people who are genuine to their own spirits.
The Dave Matthews Band released the song “Crash into Me” in 1997. It was a success for the group with a Grammy Awards nomination in 1998 for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.
As I listened to “Crash into Me” today, I began to type a poem. Below are the poem I wrote and the music video.
This is christyb, hoping you play the music, read the lines, and SAVOUR THE DAY.
Safe as a Harmony
When the beat takes you away,
You feel like you can walk for miles without
A toe to the ground, not even one time.
You imagine yourself back in rooms of love
And want to slow down the seconds
Into pieces you keep in your pocket,
Safe as a harmony, to
Emerge for rainy days.
Memories crash into my world
When I hear the beat sway, and
I wonder where your heart beats today.
Do you hear the same song?
