10月5日に久々ライブを行ったDonnie Vieですが、自身のFB上で”あなたのお気に入りのEnuff Z’nuffの曲は何ですか?”と投稿しています。
この時のドニさん自身は「Dissonance」とのこと。

Whats your favorite enuff znuff song? Mine= Dissonance

これに対し多くの人が「〇〇が好き!」、「1曲には絞れな〜い♪」などコメントを寄せていますが、これらに対しドニさんが逐一コメントを寄せています。
ニュアンスが分からないものも多いのですが、興味深いものもあるのでここに一部残しておきます。
(結構この人投稿消しちゃうので。この前なんかTeamDV結成を目論み、あなたは何ができますかと積極的に尋ねていたりしていましたがそれも消されちゃいましたね。
これはあれかね、マネージメント契約していたJeff Kellerのサイトからドニさんの名前が消えているのと関係あるのかな?)

話逸れましたが、それではいきましょ。(ファーストから順にしてあります。)

Superstitious
Don E Vie >>> had that piece of doodie laying around since b4 1st record. It lingered

Black Rain
Don E Vie >>> black rain. Some japanese millionair use to come to town to let loose and do limitless coke. Then delerious would put yakuza contracts on our asses .

My Dear Dream
Don E Vie >>> song that frigo was fired over

Loser of the world
Don E Vie >>> I was in the live room playing it and they had the piano mics rolling unbeknownst to me. it broke me up so bad you can hear my voice crack on the last word. think that was one of the last times I cried for myself. then I smelled my vagina start to stink and I’ve had my big boy pants on ever since. unless you count when I heard they were making a record without me.
Don E Vie >>> awe wheehhhh. my poor repertoire

チップの投稿はないな^^;

本来ならその前後のコメントくれた人の返信も読むとニュアンスが伝わりやすいのですが、そこまで載せるとやりすぎな感じもするのでぜひFBの投稿元をご覧ください。
もっといろんな曲のコメントを聞いてみたい。「You & I」とか「On My Way Back Home」とか…(沢山ありすぎる!)、お気に入りとして曲を挙げている人はいるけど、残念ながらドニさんのコメントがついてないんよね。投稿されて2週間ほど経つけどこれからでもつくのかな?

ドニさん発信として次のようなことも投稿しています。

Don E Vie >>> Chip bags on me for taking all the credit. Then you should have done drugs instead of being on the phone all the time
Don E Vie >>> I was really fond of the collaborations unfortunately there weren’t enuff of them. we grew apart as I fell apart.

Don E Vie >>> “can’t wait“,”Joni Lynn & lazy daisy are other favs of mine
