When I hear “When I Come Around,” all I can think of is how the guys went around the city, knocking all of the telephones off their jacks. (Today I guess they would knock people’s cell phones out of their hands?) I also know that the song was written by Armstrong after he broke up with his girlfriend, who later became his wife, so I’m sure it’s great fodder for conversation in la casa Armstrong!
Today’s song comes from straight from 1996 and out of my own bedroom. I bought this tape and wore it out so much that I had to buy another! I remember playing Savage Garden’s “I Want You” over and over again as I painted my bedroom lime green, the color so bright it shone outside my window for a few days after it was painted.
