As much as I love LIOG, WWYS, Rapunzel, Stay, etc, I would never want to willingly recite their lyrics. Pretty cheesy. But sometimes that works. I have no problem with some corny lyrics if the tone of the song fits them decently. Dreamgirl is indeed a sappy cheese song, but I feel like it's kind of successfully one, like Space Between, Crash, etc. The only sole thing about Dreamgirl I think is ridiculous to any extreme or confusing extent is that China line. Other than that, the song functions as an effective corny love song by DMB.

Everything about this song bores me to tears. The lyrics are bad, the delivery is worse, and it's more of drum-machine Carter. There could have been an interesting idea in this song, but instead of doing anything with it, they just created a mindlessly repetitive piece of music.

This is such a bad song. Even the name is terrible..."Stolen Away on 55th and 3rd". Jesus Christ. The music sucks, the lyrics suck, the singing sucks, everything sucks.

I don't hate this song, but it does have possibly the stupidest sounding title in the DMB catalog.

i love people calling this lazy writing but get their rocks off to stuff like loving wings. im not saying they're anywhere near each other in terms of quality, but it's a stupid point to try and make that the song isn't good because its simple. even the drum machine works. not the actual sound, just that it works with the song in terms of being a bare minimum arrangement.
