#11 – Eve 6 – “Here’s to the Night” – (2000)

If you had any sort of graduation during the 2000s, then chances are this song either made you depressed or happy or both. This is a bittersweet song about moving on written in a happy time in world history. It’s one of the band’s signature songs. I’m not going to say much about it, but it’s really good.


Eve 6 – “Tongue Tied” – (1998)

As Monday’s song was sappy, this song is awesome. Eve 6 was known for “Inside Out” which got all the airplay off their self-titled debut album. But “Tongue Tied” is more alternative rock – or, at least, the late-90s version of alternative rock. It kicks-ass in the same way those Third Eye Blind hits kick ass. The video stars a young Katie Holmes and is mega-1998: the clothes, the hairstyles, the VCR in the classroom. Gah, the good old days.

#102 – Eve 6 – “Inside Out” – (1998)

“Inside Out” is another one of those songs with seemingly irrational lyrics – making it quite memorable and fun to sing along with… the opening: “I would swallow my pride / I would choke on the rinds / but the lack thereof would leave me empty inside / swallow my doubt / turn it inside out / find nothing but faith in nothing / want to put my tender heart in a blender / watch it spin ’round into a beautiful oblivion / rendezvous, then I’m through with you.” “Leech” was popular on the rock charts and the band shot a video for the song “Tongue Tied,” which didn’t make it on the radio – which is a shame because it’s good – but the video did have Katie Holmes in it.
