“Something’s Always Wrong”

We are lucky here in Asheville, NC to have a radio station 98.1 (The River), whose slogan is “Different is Good.” They play a mix of alternative, indie pop and rock songs from the 1980s to today, and they also showcase local artists and bands (Asheville is a HUGE music town with a ton of venues that play live music).

One song that gets a lot of airplay on The River is one of my favorite songs ever, by one of my favorite bands ever. It’s from 1994 and back in those days was categorized as “college rock” or just alternative. Bands like Toad the Wet Sprocket, They Might Be Giants, and Gin Blossoms were just too pop and their melodies and arrangements were a little too pretty to qualify as grunge, even though it was popular around the same time.

I don’t really know why I love this song so much, but I never grow tired of it.

  1. That station sounds perfect. I’m a fan of alternative music. I can’t say that I ever heard the song you posted before today, but I enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing.

    • It was never a huge radio hit, but it should have been. Yes, I agree The River is pretty much the perfect radio station. It’s an independent station, not owned by ClearChannel or any other conglomerate, so they have more freedom to actually play good music and more variety of different kinds of music. Not every town and city is so fortunate.
