#39 – Barenaked Ladies – “Too Little Too Late” – (2000)

I was sitting here trying to remember why I picked this song over BNL’s other huge single from 2000’s Maroon – and then I turned it on and the music answered my question instantly. This song was sung entirely by Stephen Page – who is no longer with the band (and perhaps why they didn’t perform it at the BNL concert I was at last week). All I know is that this is one of the best bands in the world. They are super talented and their songs are super witty, catchy and well-written. Yes, being funny and have a distinct personality goes a long way to be a good band. This was a top 20 hit on the A/C chart, but still one of their better-known songs.
