runway train

Remember the band Soul Asylum? I just came across their album Gravedancers Union after eight or so years. I used to be so obsessed with this band. The singer was dating Wynona Ryder at the time and that was the stamp of approval of indie cred back then. They had that stupid hit single "Runaway Train" with all the missing kids that you probably remember. I remember thinking the album was soooo alternative, angsty, and grungy, but listening to it now makes Third Eye Blind sound like speed metal. Ok, not really. I believe it was one of the first concerts I saw, I saw them at Jones Beach with….the Spin Doctors. I am kind of ashamed to admit that. The bottom line is one of the best songs ever is "Somebody to Shove". Basically every song these days is about attraction and love and all that stuff, but this one at the time, I was in high school and it really hit home about some guy I had a crush on at the time. Don't ask, I can't even remember who the hell it was. But I uploaded it here. Fantastic.
