#82 – Sugarcult – Pretty Girl (2001)
One of those songs that for whatever reason I remember where I was when I first heard it. I was sitting in the living room of my first college apartment, next to the window. Much Music, or Fuse or whatever the hell it was called back then was on the TV when Pretty Girl came on. Loved the song, loved the music video. I’ve listened to it hundreds of times ever since.
Sugarcult became a bit of a staple of my college memory bank. I used to listen to Start Static and songs like Hate Every Beautiful Day, Lost in You and How Does it Feel while I smoked and walked home from my one night a week spanish class. Memory, the acoustic version, was always on my playlists until I found out that not only was there a regular version but an entire album to go along with it. Palm Trees and Power Lines brings me back to my senior year. I gave a cute girl rides home after Fundamentals of Design class and more often than not it was in my CD player.
I think Sugarcult, maybe more than any other, was my true college band. Check out the music video. It’s good.
