Album: Sixpence None The RicherReleased: 1997Charted:
This was originally recorded by the The La's
, a promising band from England who developed a cult following in America. They released it as a single in 1988, but it didn't chart. In 1990, when The La's finally released their first album, they re-released this as a single - this time it charted at #13 in the UK and #49 in the US. Critics loved the album, but the La's disappeared soon after it was released.
Sixpence None The Richer's version became a hit when it was used in the movie Snow Day. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England)
Many people believe the song is about shooting up heroin, with "she" being the drug. (thanks, Ric - London, England)
This was used in commercials for birth control pills Ortho Tri-cylcen LO.
