"Funny the Way" that Dave Matthews could make a song this terrible

Listening to the radio lately, Dave Matthews Band's new song "Funny the Way It Is" has been on pretty heavy rotation. This is the first single off of their upcoming record Big Whiskey & the Groogrux King. Frankly, it is terrible. There is practically no rhyming, the lyrics seem kind of "preachy," and the music itself is just weird. This song is pretty much worse than the entire Everyday album. I thought that Dave's solo album Some Devil was really good, and even thought that Stand Up wasn't too bad. To me, this definitely represents a step in the wrong direction. I thought about linking a video of this song from Youtube, but decided that I don't want it on my blog.

It definitely elicited a "What the hell!?" response from me the first time I heard it.

Agreed, a lifelong Dave fan and this was very disappointing...

not as bad as Chris Cornell's Scream.
you should also take into account the fact that they're one member short, and that the song is about that particular member.

Thank God! I thought I was the only one who couldn't stand Dave Matthews.
