Speak to Me
« on: February 18, 2011, 03:15:39 PM »
I think this is probably one of DT's most beautiful songs. I think it needs way more appreciation than it recieves  :D


Here's me hoping it will recieve rotation next tour. Seeing this song played live would make my life complete.

Major props!  :tup :tup :tup

It always seems to be voted against in the Survivors, though...

One of my favorite songs  :hefdaddy :heart
I imagined the story to go more like this.

I was sitting a traffic light blaring Space Dye Vest and next to me in another car was Kevin Moore. And I'll never be open again.

Love it. Great song, and I love JP's solo in it.
... And you ask me: "Where's my hairspray?"

Do you like the clothes she wears today?
Colliding love affair against a shade
Often times I wish she'd speak to me
Her holy open book, a world revealed to see

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I like both the "cleaning the closet" version and the live at rotterdam version.

Currently tied with Eve for favorite B-side. Love James' use of falsetto in this one. Better than 3/4 of FII, IMO.

It's still one of DT's best soft songs in my book, IMO.

Agreed, wholeheartedly. Just a damn shame it was never put out on a studio release.

I always thought this song would make a great end credits song on a movie.  Start it during the very end of the movie and move to credit screen when James kicks in.

There is a GDT release for the show that I went to, which I own, however I cannot share it because of GDT's rules. As for other shows I'm not sure, I don't think its on any live fanclub discs that I can remember or any live Ytsejam stuff. I could be wrong here though!

Saw it live twice:  '98 in with Derek on keys, and in '06 in San Francisco.  Truly a gem from that era.

The song in general, or, specifically from the Octavarium tour?

A live version is available on the 1998 fan club cd (and the 5 Years in a LiveTime video/dvd), while the original demo is available on the 1999 fan club cd and the FII Demos cd.

That's the unplugged version, right?  I mean the Octavarium tour version.

I've only heard the Rotterdam version, but it's one of my favorites. I wish DT would try to capture that kind of mood and atmosphere more often. :)
