In this very special episode, Alex Shaw of the Digital Drift podcast joins me to discuss the Goo Goo Dolls' Iris as well as the film for which the song was written, City of Angels.
The first half of the episode is spent on sandpaper vocals and unnecessary guitar solos, while we spend the second half tying the song's creepy lyrics to an even creepier film.
Does anyone really believe the singer is looking at film footage through all those telescopes? Where was God while Nic Cage was camping out in Meg Ryan's bathroom? Does this song hold the record for having the greatest number of terrible covers? Listen to find out!
