Today, we feature a song that was way overplayed in the early 90's.And still, I always kind of liked this song, even though I disliked this band and their brand of hippiesque music.
Yes, I just invented the word "hippiesque". Pronounce it "Hippie-Esk", and make sure you credit me when you use it.
But back to the song. This song is fun, fast-paced, and clever in its happy snarkiness. What makes it even better - it was based on someone specific. This song wasn't their biggest hit - the incessantly annoying "Two Princes" holds that honor - but it is the song that, after a year of release, finally kickstarted the sales of their eventually platinum album "Pocket Full of Kryptonite." MTV started playing this song, and, as was their habit when they used to play music videos on MTV, they kept playing it on a continuous loop.
And I heard it on the radio the other day, which is why you're hearing it now.
