This was Airborne Toxic Event's debut single. It was re-released in 2009 after the band gained some notoriety.
Both this song and "Sometime Around Midnight
" were penned by the band's songwriter Mikel Jollett about the same former girlfriend. However they were written nearly a year apart. Jollett told MishMashMagazine.com
that this song, "was actually written first but is a more upbeat take on the situation I guess."
Richard Patrick of Filter
"Hey Man, Nice Shot" was nearly a Nine Inch Nails song, as Richard was working with Trent Reznor when he came up with it.
Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
Dexys (Kevin Rowland and Jim Paterson)
"Come On Eileen" was a colossal '80s hit, but the band - far more appreciated in their native UK than stateside - released just three albums before their split. Now, Dexys is back.
They Might Be Giants
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
