T is for...These Dreams and Til I Hear
Sorry it's such a late post today, dear readers. I'm catching up at work and today's post has been on the back burner. But it's here now! Yay! Today is all about the letter T.
T is for "These Dreams" and "Til I Hear It From You"
"These Dreams" - Heart
Heart is awesome. Just plain awesome sauce. "These Dreams" was the first song by the band to hit number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It's a gravelly power ballad and we can thank Nancy Wilson for having a cold during recording.
*Fun Fact: The song was originally offered to Stevie Nicks, but she had no interest in recording it. Also, though Heart had only previously recorded their own music, they were so interested in this song that they included it on their self-titled album.
"Til I Hear It From You" - Gin Blossoms
I am obsessed with the Gin Blossoms; have been for a long time. "Til I Hear It From You" was released in 1995 as the lead single off the Empire Records soundtrack and re-released the following year with "Follow You Down". Both songs charted at the same time and were fairly successful. When covered in Billboard magazine, the song was quoted as being "the closest thing to a perfect pop song to hit radio in recent memory...[it has a] breezy and wonderfully infectious melody". Pretty high praise!
*Lyrics: "Well baby I don't want to take advice from fools / I'll just figure everything is cool / Until I heard it from you"
