Can I just say that 1997 was a great year in music. From Spice Girls to Puff Daddy, to Hanson to Usher, to Marilyn Manson to Jewel. A lot of it was good and some of it was horribly bad. But bad in a good way. 1997 peaked my musical interest as a young one and therefore no matter how bad the song was from this era, I still have a soft spot for it.
Not to start off this Flashback Friday saying this song from The Wallflowers is bad by any means. Quite the opposite actually. I used to like this song, actually still do. The Wallflowers weren’t the greatest band out there but I still enjoyed them. Believe it or not, I actually had no interest in them based on the fact that Jakob Dylan was the son of Bob Dylan (my Bobby D appreciation didn’t happen till later in life). Looking back on The Wallflowers now, I think I like them even better because I can see Bob Dylan in his son Jakob and even in his voice, yet The Wallflowers still have a different sound than anything his father put out.

Man, I ain’t changed, but I know I ain’t the same.
