Goo Goo Dolls are another of those artists I can never make up my mind about. Certainly they have their moments and the song selected today is probably one of them. I am of the opinion, however, that they are one of those bands who you could get away with purchasing the Greatest Hits - the first volume of theirs was their latest release, in November of last year - and leaving the rest. This track would be one of the odd exceptions then, in that it is an album track. You know it's a problem, though, when you say that it sounds like it could have been a single, rather than seeing the whole album as a collection.
One thing that surprises about the Goo Goo Dolls is their sheer longevity. Formed in Buffalo, New York, in 1986, they've just kept on going. They've a new album in the works, separate from their Greatest Hits Vol. 2 due out this year. Besides this, they will be playing the O2 Wireless Festival this year.
As it's not a single, there's no official video to accompany this track. However somebody has taken some footage from The OC and edited together into one of those horrible fan-vids. It was either that or Teen Titans, so in my fashion, ignorant to most things televised, I opted for what I've seen in the blogs of others and just hope it's the lesser of two evils:
