Bush - Glycerine

The song Glycerine, of the post-grunge band Bush, is probably the song that has had the most impact on my life. I was 17 years old when I discovered this song. I had just moved out of my parents' place to go to college and started dating the woman that would later become my wife.

Even today, 12 years later, this might still be my all-time favorite song. I just listened to it ... twice. Nostalgic!

Yup, it's a great song.

Thanks for the flashback :)

Personally, I like most of the rest of their first album much better. And, reading this, I probably should listen to it again, sometime. Thanks for reminding us what we sometimes forget.

I really like how you can relive those forgotten moments thanks to Youtube.

Hadn't heard this one for ages. Thanks!

It is a great song, and they're a great band. 40 Miles from the Sun is my favourite though ;)

Time to look for - and oggify - my Bush collection!

Somehow live music that's being performed in storms is always (?) better...

We once saw a performance by the Foo Fighters at the Belgian Pukkelpop festival during a rain storm, and it's in my top 3 of all-time favorite concerts. We were wet to the bone, but boy, did we shake our heads! :P

Great song, but my favourite is Everything zen.
Nice to revisit some 90's music. Those were the years...

Great song, did you already post your favorite collection on last.fm?

You weren't the only one to start humming Nirvana after watching the vid. ;) How about Weezer, blue album? Can't be beat...

I never heard this song before, but it definitely touches me. Maybe I should check out some more Bush-songs!
Nice blog in general, by the way!

Sixteen stone was actually one of the first CDs I bought. I had the limited edition double-CD version with live tracks, but lost it, somehow :\

The rain makes that performance, which isn't in itself the best, truly memorable. It's a perfect rainy day song.

I remember that MTV or VH1 special where Gavin talks about how they were worried they were going to be electrocuted. It was awesome. The music blogging network has this post;
