Always The Last To Know

Album: Change Everything (1992)
Charted: 13 30
  • This song was the biggest hit off Change Everything, and it was successful enough to keep the group visible in the United States. It's a song about infidelity, and is one of the more philosophical songs about it. In this one, the singer wants the girlfriend to stay even though she's met someone else. It's an interesting contrast to their previous hit "Kiss This Thing Goodbye," where the singer just wants to end it as quickly and painlessly as possible. >>

  • The author Stephen King cites this as one of his favorite songs. "It's so goddamn sad," he told Rolling Stone.
