    "Crash Into Me" Is Way Creepier Than You Realized When You Were Younger

    And if you didn't spend the summer of 1996 blasting "Two Step" and "So Much To Say" and "Tripping Billies," what were you even doing?

    But then there's "Crash Into Me." It's probably the catchiest Dave Matthews song ever written — but looking back, by a wide margin, it's also unimaginably creepy.
