No Rain, Blind Melon
…1992. Dear God. That girl might have kids by now.
I remember when this song came out and became a hit, originally I couldn’t stand the song. Grew on me after a while and now is nostalgic. Weird.
No report of a family for Ms. DeLoach, but apparently she now owns a business that name-checks her role as “bee girl”. Good for her.
I have this song on .45 and it does sound better on analog gear.
All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
You don’t like my point of view
Ya think that I’m insane
Its not sane… its not sane
It has been too long since I heard this song.
I haven’t ranked my favorite music videos like I have my favorite songs and albums (No Rain is #5 on my songs list, the Blind Melon album is #9 on my album list), but if I had to pick a favorite music video of all time, this would be it.
I just want someone to say to me
I’ll always be there when you wake
You know I’d like to keep my cheeks dry today
So stay with me and I’ll have it made
The death of Shannon Hoon hit me much harder than the death of Kurt Cobain; Hoon grew up one town over from me in Indiana and was about one year older than me, so there’s something about his writing that resonates with me just because of our common upbringing.
