Tune for Tuesday

Today’s Tune for Tuesday comes from a band that was popular in the late nineties. Third Eye Blind is one of my favorite bands. Their self-titled debut album came out in 1997. It was a huge success with hits such as “Semi-charmed Life,” “How’s It Going to Be,” and “Graduate.” My favorite song from the album is “Narcolepsy.” That CD was continuously playing in my car throughout 1997 and 1998. I saw them in concert in 1998; they were just as good live. Third Eye Blind came out with another album, Blue, in 1999. “Never Let You Go” and another one of my favorites, “Anything,” were on that album. Their 2003 album, Out of the Vein, was not as much of a success as the first two. I own all three albums, and frequently listen to their music. It is rumored that Third Eye Blind will be coming out with another album this year. I would love to listen to some new material from them.
One of their hits from their first album is featured in the Jim Carrey film, Yes Man.
Listen to Jim Carrey sing the Third Eye Blind song, “Jumper.”


Now listen to Third Eye Blind’s “Jumper.” Third Eye Blind rocks!

3eb rocks! I saw them this summer, they played a few new songs, which were pretty good. (you can buy a digital EP of theirs on amazon.) I stll listen to their debut CD very often. I was never a big fan of Jumper, but at the show this year they plyaed that song for at least twelve minutes, and I loved every minute. A few favorites: The Background, Motorcycle Drive-By, Wounded. But they're all great.

I movie version was pretty amusing...not quite enough to make we want to see the movie, though.

Third Eye Blind is a good one. I love "Graduate." I like to blast it crazy loud and scream it out!

Thanks, Kelly!!! Good info, as always... I'll definitely confer with you the next time I set out to buy a CD. Gosh, I wish I knew more about music! Always say so when I read your Tuesday posts...

Now I'm going to have to see Yes Man :)

We were going to see it over the holidays but saw Bedtime Stories instead.

Thanks for the reminder.

I love 3EB! I know every word to Semi-Charmed Life and that first cd was just so great! Glad to find someone else who even remembers who the band is :)
