Eduardo from Curitiba, BrazilActually, the first song Dave wrote is "The Song That Jane Likes".
Beau from Phoenix, Az"The Song That Jane Likes" actually predates DMB by about 2 years; it appeared on a disc Dave did with Mark Roebuck called Tribe of Heaven, which was recorded in 1989 but never actually released until 2005.
Ines from Miami, FlI just want to know what this song is about? I love it! But I don't fully understand the lyrics. Thanks =o)
Ryan from New York, NyI believed this one was about Anne Matthews
Bryan from Syracuse, NyI have walked in Dave's shoes then.
Gabe from New York, NyIf I remember correctly, The Song That Jane Likes, was Dave's first musically written peice with the band, while I'll Back You Up was his first song containing lyrics.
Jesse from Peterborough, CanadaYou're all missing a rather important point. Tim Reynolds played the solo and harmony guitar parts.
Ben from Harpers Ferry, WvThis was the first complete song- the music for the song that jane likes was complete before this song, but the words came after. It is a good song, beautiful music but a little wimpy in its sentiment. It shows the evolution of his relationships with women, however, if you compare it to later songs.
Dan from Port Jervis, NyAccording to www.antsmarching.org, The Song That Jane Likes was the second song he wrote. They say that Dave wrote this song in April 1990 and wrote TSTJL in October 1990.
Tommy from Southboro, MaI think "The Song that Jane Likes" is the first song Dave wrote...I may be wrong though, correct me if I am
Lucian from Blacksburg, VaThis was accualy written by Dave after he had asked Grey to marry him (3 times...poor guy!). Holloween is the "sequel" to this, and basically says F You!
Emily from Houston, TxThis is a beautiful song that seems to be somewhat underrated for what it is and what it is about as well as the amazing guitar melodies. Dave Matthews sure set his band off to a great start with this one!
