Dave Matthews Band - #41


"#41" is a song by the Dave Matthews Band, featured on 1996 album Crash.

Song history

"#41" was originally written by Dave Matthews as a reply to lawsuits brought forth by Ross Hoffman, a former associate and manager of the band. Hoffman owned rights to a number of the band's songs in the early 1990s; however, due to creative differences, he was eventually fired by the band, and the band's present manager, Coran Capshaw, was hired.

As an owner to the band's songs, Hoffman felt he deserved a share of the profits, which later caused a legal dispute between him and the band. Matthews wrote the song based upon the broken-hearted feelings he was experiencing as he was going through legal disputes with a former mentor of his.

41 Police

On April 7, 1995, "#41" debuted under the title "41 Police." As the band had not come up with an official title for the song, the number 41 was used as it was the band's 41st song, and it sounded similar to a song by The Police, "Bring on the Night".

The original performance was played at Cameron Indoor Stadium at Duke University, and lasted around nine minutes. This version of the song was played a total of 19 times before evolving into the "#41" that exists today.

In fall 1995, the song was officially named "#41" after several lyric and chord changes were made. This song was the band's fourth "numbered" song at the time, following "#34," "#36," and "#40." After "41 Police" became a defunct song, the first performance of the "#41" live was played on October 4, 1995, at the Tinker Street Café in Woodstock, NY.

The show featured frequent collaborator Tim Reynolds on the electric guitar. In the fall of 1995 the band, along with Reynolds, recorded the song in the studio for the album Crash with producer Steve Lillywhite. On the album, a flute bridge by LeRoi Moore segues the song into the following track, "Say Goodbye," and was often played in this fashion during live shows after the song's debut.

During that year, "#41" became the most played song on their summer tour.


Crash is the second studio album by American rock group Dave Matthews Band, released on April 30, 1996.

By March 16, 2000, the album had sold seven million copies, and was certified 7× platinum by the RIAA. This is currently Dave Matthews Band's best-selling album.

Crash è un album della Dave Matthews Band, pubblicato il 30 aprile, 1996. Comprende il singolo di maggior successo della band, "Crash Into Me".


Dave Matthews Band, also known by the initialism DMB, is an American rock band that was formed in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1991. The founding members were singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Matthews, bassist Stefan Lessarddrummer and backing vocalist Carter Beauford, and saxophonistLeRoi MooreBoyd Tinsley joined the band as a violinist soon after.

In August 2008, LeRoi Moore died due to complications from injuries sustained in an ATV accident. Soon after, Grammy Award winner Jeff Coffin (of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones) joined and since filled Moore's spot as saxophonist. In May 2018, a lawsuit alleging sexual misconduct was filed against Tinsley by a former bandmate in his side project, an accusation that Tinsley denies. As a consequence, Tinsley was officially fired from the band.

Trumpeter Rashawn Ross, guitarist Tim Reynolds, and keyboardist Buddy Strong also have become full-time members of the band. Other former members include keyboardists Peter Griesar and Butch Taylor.

The band is known for playing songs differently each time they're performed live. This has become a staple of DMB's live shows since the early 1990s. Another staple of their annual summer tours is a three-day stint at The Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington state over Labor Day weekend.

Come and see
I swear by now i'm playing time
I against my troubles
I'm coming slow but speeding
Do you wish a dance and while i'm
In the front
The play on time is won
But the difficulty is coming here

I will go in this way
And find my own way out
I wont tell you to stay
But i'm coming to much more
All at once the ghosts come back
Reeling in you now
What if they came down crushing
Remember when i used to play for
All of the loneliness that nobody
Notice now
I'm begging slow i'm coming here
Only waiting i wanted to stay
I wanted to play
I wanted to love you

I'm only this far
And only tomorrow leads my way
I'm coming waltzing back and moving into your head
Please, i wouldnt pass this by
I would take any more than
What sort of man goes by
I will bring water
Why wont you ever be glad
It melts into wonder
I came in praying for you
Why wont you run
In the rain and play
Let the tears splash all over you


Venite a vedere
Giuro che ora sto giocando il tempo
Io contro i miei problemi
Sto arrivando lento ma veloce
Vuoi una danza e mentre io sono
Nella parte anteriore
Il gioco in tempo è vinto
Ma la difficoltà sta arrivando qui

Andrò in questo modo
E trova la mia via d'uscita
Non ti dirò di restare
Ma sto arrivando molto di più
Me stessa
All'improvviso i fantasmi tornano
Annaspando in te adesso
E se venissero giù schiacciando
Ricorda quando giocavo per
Tutta la solitudine che nessuno
Avviso ora
Sto implorando lentamente sto venendo qui
Aspettavo solo di voler restare
Volevo suonare
Volevo amarti

Sono solo lontano
E solo il domani mi guida
Sto tornando waltzing indietro e in movimento nella tua testa
Per favore, non lo passerei
Ne prenderei più di
Che tipo di uomo passa
Porterò acqua
Perché non sarai mai contento
Si scioglie in meraviglia
Sono venuto a pregare per te
Perché non corri
Nella pioggia e nel gioco
Lascia che le lacrime ti schizzino addosso
