#66 – Tonic – You Wanted More
One of three almost indistinguishable bands to come out in the late 90s. Third Eye Blind released Semi-Charmed Kind of Life, Matchbox 20 came out with Push, and Tonic had If You Could Only See. Each came out about the same time, each sounded just like the next.
Tonic was my favorite, and when I heard this on the American Pie Soundtrack I was basically hooked.
I think it’s the kind of unremarkable song that most probably hear once or twice and forget. I’m not even sure the biggest Tonic fan will consider this one of their best. But for some reason I love everything about it. Even the video, while cheese, is pretty awesome.
