#20 – Live – “I Alone” – (1994)

Live is a good band name to give yourself if you want to make it somewhat difficult for people to search for you on the internet. Luckily, Wikipedia comes up first, but after that you’re gonna get all kinds of results for live music. Throwing Copper was a pretty big album and it included the amazing “Lightning Crashes” as well as “I Alone,” which was released as a single right before “Lightning Crashes.” It was a top ten on the Modern Rock chart and features lyrics that I had no idea were there, such as the lead-in to the chorus: “The greatest of teachers won’t hesitate to leave you there by yourself chained to fate.” Sure, that’s what he’s saying. That line would need some serious punctuation to fit how it is sung. Either way, good song.
