Gin Blossoms (w/a helping hand from Marshall Crenshaw), but that Innocence Mission track is great.

Was in LA visiting my bf in the spring of 2000 and saw/recognized Coyote Shivers at a dance club. The next night we went to some bar and there was a DJ and weirdly it turned out to be him. I had always loved Sugar High so I told him as much and he gave me one of his CDs. That was a weird weekend of constantly bumping into CS.

I really like A Girl Like You, although it did recently occur to me that it's basically Proto-Smash Mouth.

i heard "A Girl Like You" a lot around this time, never got sick of it.

I have it in one of my bars playlists and people still seem to enjoy it. It has aged better than many one hit wonders from the 90s which is imho the decade with the worst offenders when it comes to one hit wonders

"Til I Hear It From You" still sounds terrific (thanks, Marshall!).

Drama!

John Hampton, the Ardent Studios in-house producer who co-produced the Gin Blossoms recordings, would recall: "'Til I Hear It from You' not only sold the Empire [Records] soundtrack record, but it reinvigorated sales of [Gin Blossoms' debut album] New Miserable...There was money EVERYWHERE!! And we were so fired up about the [follow-up album's prospective] sales with the inclusion of 'Til I Hear It...', we thought [that album] was going to be huge. But...we could not have 'Til I Hear It from You' for [the second Gin Blossoms album] because the label that released the Empire Records soundtrack was justifiably concerned that the A&M sales might dwarf their soundtrack record sales." [6] As the Empire Records soundtrack album was in fact also issued on A&M, any conflict of interest concern which prevented inclusion of the track "Til I Hear It from You" on the second Gin Blossoms' album Congratulations I'm Sorry would not have been a record label issue.

In a 2016 interview in which he said "It was kind of a silly decision" to leave "Til I Hear It from You" off Congratulations I’m Sorry, Jesse Valenzuela attributed the decision to an insistence on inclusion only of material written wholly by group members: "I remember being of [two] minds: [that] maybe it [should or] shouldn’t be on the [group's own album]...I don't think that the label was standing in the way of it...It was more [the band's] management than anything. We had pretty rough management at the time.
