#ThrowbackThursday: Goo Goo Dolls – ‘Iris’

Like our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/muzikspeaks)


After originally being written for the film, City of Angels, the Goo Goo Dolls released ‘Iris’ back in 1998. The song quickly became a fan favourite and is one of the most iconic alternative rock songs of the 1990s; it crossed that bridge from alternative rock to more adult pop and has been one of the band’s biggest songs of their career. The song was included on their sixth album, Dizzy Up The Girl and really boosted their popularity.

In fact, the song has been so popular since its release, that it’s re-entered the charts on several occasions and deservedly so; it’s INCREDIBLE! The passion in the song is just remarkable; it’s just one of those songs that you belt out at the top of your lungs and I think generations to come will continue to do so. It’s a timeless classic!
