Music Matters - 10/03/19

material issue

Released in 1991 by Material Issue, Valerie Loves Me hit #3 on the Billboard Modern Rock Chart. The song is about a neighbor girl that the singer had a crush on when he was 11. It’s all about wondering what she’s thinking but never being able to get her attention….and as they grow older….the singer imagines her growing old alone…..If you think that the  guitar hook sounds a bit familiar…..it is supposedly inspired by the Bowie song…..John, I’m only dancing……..
