Welcome back for another Song of the Week from Alex and Ani Entertainment, the sound of (+) energy! This week’s song is:
‘Iris’ by Goo Goo Dolls
This is a classic song and we can have our own interpretation of the lyrics’ message of wanting to be seen. Lead singer Johnny Rzeznik wrote the song for the movie ‘City of Angels’, where it is sung from the perspective of an angel sent to help humans make the transition to the afterlife. When the angel falls in love with a human, he must choose between love and eternal life.
‘Iris’ is a very powerful song that we can listen to over and over again. The words of the song fit the flow of the music so well. Also, it is also one of the most popular songs to feature a mandolin!
