Favorite DFBB song? Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

I know this is a nearly impossible to answer, but what is your favorite Darn Floor - Big Bite song? For the sake of ease, we'll not include the songs on the bonus disc of the reissue.



I've only listened through the CD three times, but as of now, Divine Instant jumps out ever so slightly more than the rest. But even as I type this, I can think of reasons to place most of the other songs at the top.

I will, with a bit of hesitation, pick Divine Instant...today. Tomorrow I may pick a different song. Cool

Earth Household

from the album "Darn Floor - Big Bite"
Words and Music by Terry Taylor, Tim Chandler, and Greg Flesch
©1987 Broken Songs (ASCAP)

Sleeping by the hearth of the earth household
Content and relaxed before the fire of life
It's becoming like a castle all woven of mist
Disintegrating when I want to grab a hold

Struggle to go somewhere beyond
The earth household, the earth household
Go to the other unknowable side
Of the earth household, the earth household

We chase with the hounds for the meaning of the world
The unattainable meaning of the world
Now I'm gonna run to the other side
Beyond the border land of death I ride

Slip through a tear in the fabric of the world
The earth household, the earth household
Speak the foreign language of a place beyond
The earth household, the earth household

I drink you endlessly toward my hollow heart
And wake at night repeating "How strange, how strange!"
All is touch and vision in a passionate kiss
And life's a drab curtain ready to be raised

Struggle to go somewhere beyond
The earth household, the earth household
Go to the other unknowable side
Of the earth household, the earth household

The earth household, the earth household

We chase with the hounds for the meaning of the world...

Half Light, Epoch, and Phase. I tend to be a fan of the more obscure songs of Terry's. For instance I think that Traps, Ensnares is a beautiful masterpiece. I do like every other song just as much though.

Divine Instant has always been my favorite from my first listen. Pleased

The album ties together in so many ways that its been almost impossible to think of one song without bringing up at least three others. So I'm only going to try to list my stand out cuts, and there are 6/10!

"The Unattainable Earth"- Great song for theme of the album. An obvious first single. Lyrically and thematically you can't think of it without tying it to "Darn Floor, Big Bite".

"Shape of Air"- Pinnacle song for the album. Ties everything together. Beautiful closer of the theme.

"Earth Household"- Beautiful and a bit haunting.

"Strange Animals" & "Safety Net" are two other stand outs for me.


. . . I know we're talking about the main album, but I love alternate takes so there is a lot of joy in having the versions of "Unattainable Earth", "Safety Net", and "Half Ligh, Epoch and Phase" on there as well.

My 12-month-old seems to like Safety Net the best. When she's in her carseat (which is where she's usually at when I'm listening to DFBB) she kicks her legs and claps her hands to the beat of that song.

Tough choice...as I firmly believe this has to be one of THE BEST recordings of all time...
For today I'll say - "The Unattainable Earth"

Tough choice indeed. I'm very fond of all the songs, but for me "Safety Net" sticks out just a little past the rest. Something about the way the tension builds up, and how the band plays on the verses in 7/8 over Ed's steady 4/4. When that offbeat syncopated guitar kicks in during the last verse, that's one of those rare musical WOW! moments for me.

OK, this is off topic.

What other DA/TST songs use a complex time signature?

I'm not aware of any off the top. I don't think it's at all a typical DA/TST thing to do, and that's part of what makes "Safety Net" stand out.

Not to get too far off topic, but our daughter had some interesting taste in music for her age before she was one year old too. I remember we were listening to the Led Zepplin box set once and she started kicking, abbling, and reaching for the CD player. But then we later listened to the House of Blues Barbeque Blues CD and she started crying. She did work on memorizing the words to the Lost Cabin CD when she was three and now really seems to like "Lucky Ones" from MBD too.

Hey, I did get it back on topic, sort of.

That takes talent.

My favorite is probably Strange Animals.
