Gin Blossoms



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Spending ten weeks on Billboard's Top Ten when it was released in 1996, this song was written at the very end of the recording process for the Congratulations... I'm Sorry CD. Songwriter Jesse Valenzuela says, "We were working on the record, and I'd come home at night to my hotel room, and I had those chords, and finished writing by the time we got home. We'd already finished the record, but I had this great song, so I demoed it up and I sent it to my main A&R man, David Andaly, the great David Andaly, and he said, 'Why are you hiding this thing? Let's put it on the record.' So we went and recorded it right away." (read the full interview with Jesse Valenzuela)
Ironically, in the final days before the Gin Blossoms amicably broke up, they were invited by ASCAP (American Society of Composers and Publishers) to receive two awards for having the most-played songs the previous year. The awards were for "'Til I Hear It From You" and this song.
