  • Zach from New Russia, NyI was at SPAC this summer and saw this song played live featuring Vusi Mahlasela. Vusi Mahlasela is who sings the intro to the song on the Album Everyday. Most amazing concert of my life.
  • Matt from Chicago, IlThis is one of the coolest songs to see live. The crownd immediatly starts sings, "Honey, Honey, come and dance with me." Then Dave starts Everyday, then goes into #36 with the story about the girl in the corner. Amazing Energy with the whole crowd taking a big part in this song. I don't think Dave can ever play Everyday without #36, because the crowd would just keep going with it.
  • John from Cleveland, TnFunny, while I love thing song, I've had some great times to this song, the initial sounds make me think of "Long Black Viel" from the Listener Supported album...
  • Izzie from Lala, Hithe music video to this song is so frikkin cute! it makes me so joyful! lol. they did a great job on this video. crash into me is my fave DMB song, but the video to that one doesnt make much sense, but i still like that video anyways!
  • Izzie from Lala, HiTHis is one of my favorite songs by DMB. its great.
  • Luke from Martin, TnA great song with a great video. Someday I shall wander about NYC and hug people.
  • Emma from Indianapolis, InDave was born in South Africa, but in 1986 he moved to Charlottesville where the rest of DMB was located. You're both right.
  • Dan from Port Jervis, NyThe man Tommy referred to was Chris Hani, who was Secretary-General of the South African Communist party, a long-time member of the African National Congress and a well known anti-apartheid activist. Hani was assassinated in 1993.

    #36 originally had lyrics that were quite dark and regarded Hani and his death. Later Dave changed the words, aparrently because he thought the original lyrics didn't fit the light and airy mood of the melody. The new lyrics recalled a prom or high school dance and "Hani, Hani" became "Honey, Honey" By that time though, at most performances the lyrics were largely improvised and often as unintelligible as they are on the Red Rocks live release.

    Dorky lyrics or not, I prefer #36 to this song and I wish they would start to play the full song again. The guitar part for Everyday is similar to #36 but not identical. I really loved the guitar on #36. It was very reggae-ish, much more so than Everyday.
  • Peter from Carmel, InActually, Lucian, Dave is from South Africa. Many of his songs are inspired by stories he heard there, such as the example given by Tommy.
  • Justin from Felts Mills, NyThis is a very good song, despite the ultra-tight production. The lyrics are upbeat, and the rhythms are well-written. I think it's a great song from DMB, if not their greatest. Yet it's good because of its uplifting messages...it is worth a listen.
  • Tommy from Southboro, MaThis song is based off the live song #36, especially the music. The live intro is many times "Honey, Honey, come and dance with me", which used to be written as "Haney, Haney" (not sure of the spelling) to tribute a murdered apartheid activist in South Africa.
  • Lucian from Blacksburg, VaThe video is awesome...its shot in my hometown which i share with DMB...Charlottesville, VA
