Under The Table And Dreaming (Dave Mathews Band) Easter Egg - #34

The last song on the album is called '#34'.
What's interesting is that it is also track number 34 on the CD. They actually inserted 22 blank tracks between 'Pay For What You Get' and '#34'. I bet it's probably one of, if not the, only songs that can have it's title listed on any regular CD Player.

The song (#36 i believe)that goes "honey honey come and dance with me" came out of a jam session before a show, a sound check or something. He started singing about Hani, a african political guy or something, not sure and then it turned into honey honey...

Just don't put the CD in shuffle mode. It throws all the blank tracks in with the regular ones.

It is #34 because it was the 34th song they wrote. They also have songs titled #36, #40 (always), and #41 (which appears on Crash) You people cannot be true DDave fans, since you keep stating that there are so called "hidden tracks" #34 is listed on the CD but its kinda cool that they made it track #34. Sorry I just had to correct the thing about it being #36, cause there is actually a song called #36...creative aren't they...

Dave says "On this one", meaning, on that phrase, they change melody.

#36 was originally an upbeat song about the South African freedom fighter Chris Hani. It evolved in to a jam about freedom which was little more than dave scatting but it kept the Hani, Hani, come and dance with me line from the original. When the lovely ladies were added, that line switched to honey, honey, come and dance with me. #36 was majorly reworked and released as the song Everyday, which is why some of the live performances of Everyday contain the Hani Hani line.

Another song that has its title the same as its track number is "10" by Neutral Milk Hotel off of the album "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea." You might also include "Number Three" which is the third track on They Might Be Giants' first album. I can't think of any others, but I bet there are more out there. Incidentally there are also lyrics to #34, he sings them in concert sometimes

Correct me if i am wrong but isnt song #36 considered Everyday? i know he wrote that with ballard but i keep seeing reference to that being 36. also from what i understand the name Granny wich has nothing to do with the song was just given that name and was suppose to appear as a studio recording on UTAD cd and was suppose to be the first radio release for dmb but scratched the song altogether but i also hear that Granny was never recored in studio.... wich is it????

I'm not sure who says that line in #34 at about 2:18, but I do know what they are saying. If you listen very carefully, you'll be able to pick out the words "commit suicide"
