#91 – The Gin Blossoms – ‘Til I Hear it From You
Why it Made The List: The Gin Blossoms were my original favorite band. I owned other CDs and liked other music back then, but New Miserable Experience was the first album that seemed to speak to me and only me. When Hey Misery and Alison Road and Until I Fall Away came on the radio I’d look around to my friends with a look as if to say, “Hey! ASSHOLES. DO YOU NOT HEAR THE AWESOMENESS THAT IS INVADING YOUR EARHOLES.”
Til I hear it from you came towards the end of my interest in the Gin Blossoms. It was apparent that they were done and the music landscape was shifting towards boy bands and RnB. I used to be pissed that the only way to hear it was on the soundtrack to Empire Records.
Still, it was an amazing song. According to wikipedia…
Billboard magazine called the single “the closest thing to a perfect pop song to hit radio in recent memory”
