Sing Along - The Blue Man Group (with Dave Matthews)

In 2003, The Blue Man Group decided to branch out from accoustic only music, and put together an album that included vocals. This album introduced me to Tracy Bonham, and was on my regular album rotation (and I listened to it again Monday night just because I remembered it). It's an interesting fusion of techno, punk, and pop, although it's nothing like seeing The Complex tour live (Wesley and I got to do that show in 2004 or 2005, I forget which.)

Sing Along stays in my favorites playlist, because it is an incredibly catchy tune that still carries an incredible message about isolation and loneliness. "If I tell you I'm strong, will you play along?" and "If I follow along, does it mean I belong?" Dave Matthews and the Blue Man Group's unique instrumentation make a powerful song.
