My love for 90's music goes a long way. Last night as I was falling asleep, this beautiful melody popped into my head, as many songs so often do. Who knows I why I randomly got hit with "Hey Jealousy", by Gin Blossoms. All I know, is I'm thankful I did.
The lyrics feel sunny and yet hopeless at the same time. It's a story of a young man struggling with himself internally, wondering if he might get a second chance at what may have already passed.
Did you know? Gin Blossoms originally formed in Tempe, Arizona. Although Hey Jealousy was originally recorded on their Dusted album in 1989, it was re-released in 1992 on New Miserable Experience. It became a Billboard Top-40 single in 1993.
Although there's nothing like the original song (check out their music video below), I found a really beautiful cover that I think is worth a listen.
I hope you enjoyed my flashback to the 90's. Stay tuned for more!
