I don’t know why, but I’ve heard this song, like, six times in the last week. It’s haunting me. Even though it officially came out when I was in eighth grade, it didn’t sweep our high school until the summer of 1998. Even though I was into Bjork, No Doubt (NOT Gwen Stephani, No Doubt) and any local hardcore band I could find, I couldn’t get this song out of my head. I like this song – it’s catchy, it reminds me that living for the moment is sometimes better than worrying about what tomorrow will bring. I didn’t like a single other thing Eagle Eye Cherry put out, but I love his station on Pandora.
So here’s a throwback to 1997, Save Tonight by Eagle Eye Cherry.
