I'm not willing to give up on D Minor 7th yet. I think it needs another chance.

I've given up on my older brother ever moving out of my parent's house. He's 43, how's that for sad.

The trick w/Dm7 is you have to switch to another chord, soon.
I used to feel the same way about G7, of "Got to be a joker he just do what he please" fame. It's grown on me.
