If there is a worst Dave song I am going to have to say

"You're Breathin' It [Urban NYC Mix]
The Jamician Rapper... UGH!
THAT SONG SUCKS!

Also Cheatin Heart Cafe with Travis Tritt is awful as well..
What do you guys/gals think??

I hate the song Damn Good. Can't stand it. Im sure there is a few more, but that one is top of the list.
I actualy like Your're Breathin' iT.

Sarge, I agree with you 100% percent....those songs are my least favorite as well!
Jamaican Rapper really sucks and Dave doing country makes me sick as well.
Then there are some great songs on that cd...He should of had MISSISSIPPI POWER on the record and cut NY MIX BREATH/IN IT OUT!

I was just thinking, 'Yeah, "Stand Up" pretty much sucks the fat one,' but then I went and had a listen to it again...and realised it's really only the chorus that shits me.

Thought I was going to be at a loss to pick a Worst Dave Song after that, but fortunately, at that very moment the next track kicked in, reminding me all too quickly that listening to 'Hina' is not unlike scraping jagged and bloody fingernails down the blackboard of my soul. Eesh...

So yeah, 'Hina' gets my vote.

Hina? I think that is one of Dave's better solo songs... I like that song.

No Big Ting is the one I hate most, with Stand Up as a close second and then Counter-Blast coming in at 3rd. This is of course not counting anything on "Diamond Dave."

I`ve never been a big fan of "Tobacco Road".

Or "Everybody`s got the monkey".

01-28-2004, 12:40 AM
I don't like Everybody's Got The Monkey too much either.

Big Train kinda gets on my nerves.

DLR7884
That Urban City NY Mix of You're Breathin' It is pathetic.

Sarge
01-28-2004, 01:39 AM
Big Ting.. another awful one..
YFLM hold the list for worst songs...

DLR7884
01-28-2004, 01:44 AM
YFLM has more bad songs than the new album???

I don't think so.

It has more good songs than the new one.

If they are bad, at least they are originals.

DLR7884
What was Dave's quote about ccover songs being hits???

Foozwah
01-29-2004, 04:18 PM
I could concede Hina was one of Dave's better songs...but only provided I was assuming every single other song he's ever done in his entire life was even better...

[shrug] Sorry, but something about it just grates on my nerves. Always has. Even thinking about it now is annoying.

Just my opinion though, and others' mileage obviously varies. :D

Catfish
01-29-2004, 04:43 PM
Medicine Man. What the fuck is that shit?

I agree also with Ice Cream Man 2 and I don't particularly like Hina, either. Cheatin' Heart Cafe licks Travis Tit. Perfect Timing's pretty fucking stoopid, too.

I thought No Big 'Ting was one of Dave's more creative songs with some of his best lyrics.

Catfish
01-29-2004, 04:46 PM
Oh yeah, and I don't like Best Tool for the Job or Tight. They seem so forced.

S.P.G
01-29-2004, 05:02 PM
no big ting is shite and the whole of his last album is dross!

DLR7884
01-30-2004, 12:03 AM
Tight was a much better song when it was called Private Parts.

Part of the reason it seems forced is because of the lyrics. When it was written for Howard it seemed to flow.

DLR7884
Dave's band is tight though, just like the song says.

DLR7884
01-30-2004, 12:05 AM
Don't Piss Me Off was a rather subpar effort as well. It would have fit perfectly on his latest release.

DLR7884
God that song is boring!

Everything Dave has done has been Dave being Dave. Nobody is better at being Dave than Dave when it comes to being Dave.....He is Da Dave!

I like all his stuff...He's got Charasma!

I guess I'm the only person who feels this way, but "Thug Pop" sounds to me like it was written in 10 minutes. It sounds like it's just following a formula, and I said this in another thread, I honestly just KNEW it was going to have that standard alternative-rock abrupt ending while I was hearing it for the first time.

I know you fuckers are sick of top ten lists....

But here is my Top Ten of Roth Songs that suck!

1- Your Breathin It (Remix) What the fuck is this crap? Producer Nile Rodgers of Madonna fame, transforming Diamond Dave into a BLING BLING rapper simply doesn't work for me. I would also like to add the production has a amateurish PBS early morning cartoon vibe. Terrible.

2- Tommorow Never Knows - I'm sure George Harrison is rolling in his grave, after listening to this abomination to the Beatles classic. Quite simply, this is not his formula. A total embaressment that makes No Holds BBQ look competent.

3- Cheatin Heart Cafe - After one listening to this crap, you gotta find it hard to believe DLR's career would ever recover from this travesty. Even the lyrics aren't up to DLR's standards, and Travis Tritt adds insult to injury.

4- Ice Cream Man (2003) - Let's turn an original classic, into a loungey Las Vegas Song. LET'S NOT!

5- Everybody's Got The Monkey - This song is so absurdly awful, I simply cannot grasp how this made the cut on YFLM. Peter Gabriel's SHOCK THE MONKEY is even better than this cowdung.

6- Counter- Blast - David's worst lyrical song. I must confess the tune is catchy, but his vocals seem strained and the riff becomes tiresome.

7- She's lookin Good - Actually, I can't rate this one. Because I skip it everytime. I'm sorry, If I wanna see white people dancin' toblack peoples music.... I'll go buy a fucking Vanilla Ice album.

8- Skyscraper - Dave has never made such an ambitious song, that so dreadfully backfired unto him. A totally inept concept. However, Vai's virtuoso guitar playin' might attract you to this effort, if your into surrealism and Drugs at 3 A.M. in the morning.

9- 6 Fools A Minute - Is this the beginning of DLR's destiny into the world of Las Vegas? This jazzy tongue in cheek manifesto clocks in just under 3 minutes... Personally I rather spend 3 masturbating or catching the last few minutes of the LAWRENCE WELK show.

10 - Hammerhead Shark - I'm gonna take the Green Eggs & Ham approach for this review. I simply do not like this song. I would not listen to it with a Fox... or in a box.

Stand Up. The "Vegas" version of Ice Cream Man. I'll Wait (though Eddie's more to blame for that one)

I think Dave was really drunk when he did that one. Maybe drunk enough to think he was doing a duet with Michael Anthony. They do kinda look alike you know. Though maybe "Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers" would have been a better choice ;)

To say either Counter-Blast or Blacklight sounded like Led Zeppelin is pretty ridiculous. I fucking HATE Counter-Blast and Blacklight is just filler...two weakest tracks on the album in my opinion.

DLR7884
03-08-2004, 07:08 PM
"Blacklight" sounds more like Zep than any other song on that album.

"Counterblast" is straight filler.

DLR7884
I agree with Lou on that.

Did he actually do anything after Vanhalen 2?
It seems that all his efforts have been trying to keep a sound that died when the band broke up, even before the band broke up.
All I want to know is what happened to the friggin scream.
I tell ya I'd like to hear all the songs they didn't record but wrote.
I bet there is a lot of great stuff on the editing floor that will never be heard.
Still love ya Dave!

Stand Up and Shoot It are equal contenders for being some of his worst solo material ever. Those songs make me cringe.

"Hina" would have been an excellent song if it wasn't called "Hina" It sounds gay hearing it and sounds gay saying it.

The entire Diamond Dave CD is unlistenable and YFLM is almost as bad and is only saved by "She's My Machine".

*I don't know what it is but "Pushover" gives me the hee-bee jee-bees. I really hate all those old songs that Dave tries to update. It was a fun idea for the CFTH EP but to milk it into a career is just a big bad mistake.

"Hina", "Knucklebones" and "Damn Good" are 3 main reasons that I want the DLR catalog re-mastered.

Worst Dave song in my opinion is: "40 Below"...Just couldn't get into it.

But...bare in mind. I don't own DLR Band or Diamond Dave and although I DO own it, I don't consider "Your Filthy Little Mouth" a Dave album.

Probably haven't heard enough recent Dave CD's but "Last Call" and "It's Show Time" are my least favourite on "A Little Ain't Enough".

Also "Tell the Truth" is good but it sounds alot like "Black Velvet" by Alana Myles IMO.
