Song of the hour
I don’t know much about Toad the Wet Sprocket except they have a stupid name. I was recently transferring my old itunes account to a new computer (song by song – long story) and came across this tune which I haven’t listened to in years. I remember seeing the video on Rage a millennia ago and falling in love with it. I have a real weakness for songs with strong backing vocals/melodies (from the Beach Boys to Hole’s Malibu – gorgeous backing vocals on that one) and I think that’s the thing that really strikes me about this song. Above anything else, it’s just a beautifully sullen little pop gem. I can only think of one other Toad the Wet Sprocket song but to be honest, I think this is the only one I need.
