Eagle-Eye Cherry "Save Tonight"
I remember hearing this song when it first came out. I loved it then, and I'm still all about it now! The "Save Tonight" single was released in the US in Oct. 1998, backing the previous year's album, Desireless. The track has always had a special place in my musical memory; Dating back to a much simpler time of entire summers at "The Pool," Y100/Alternative Rock, and self-made mix CD's spun in my first Walkman. While I've always associated "Save Tonight" with Tonic, Lit, "Hey Leonardo," Lenny Kravitz, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals (NOW comps.), along with an early interest in the Beastie Boys... I never knew that Eagle-Eye (Lanoo) Cherry was actually the leadsinger's birth name or that he originally hails from Stockholm, Sweden.
