Interstate Love Song (1994)

Time for another round of Throwback Thursday!

This is where we get to listen to some great music from days gone by. 

Today’s music comes to us from 1994.  

Wikipedia tells us this about today’s tune:

"Interstate Love Song" is a single by American rock band Stone Temple Pilots. Released in September 1994, the song is from the band's second studio album, Purple. Considered one of the band's biggest hits, "Interstate Love Song" reached number one on the US Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart (current Mainstream Rock) on September 17, 1994, replacing the band's previous single "Vasoline". The song stayed at number one for 15 weeks, a record at the time, and gave the Stone Temple Pilots 17 consecutive weeks at number one with both songs. It also peaked at number two on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart and in Iceland, as well as number 20 in Canada.

In 2003, "Interstate Love Song" was featured on their greatest hits compilation Thank You. In 2009, it was named the 58th best hard rock song of all time by VH1. The song was ranked at number 17 on Australian alternative music station Triple J's Hottest 100 countdown of 1994. "Interstate Love Song" is praised as one of the best songs of the 1990s.

  1. Mary,

    I don't remember this song at all. It released the year DS was born so that's probably the reason. For the first 8-weeks I felt like a zombie because my brand new baby had his days and nights mixed up. Our young daughters who were 4 and 6 didn't allow any opportunities for a short nap during the day. I often wondered how on earth I survived those years of little to no sleep. I believe God just keep my body in motion to do what was needed but my mind...where was my mind? I think it was catatonic. :D

  2. I recall this song which is pretty good even if I don't go out of my way to listen to it. I love the beginning of the video done in the old style silent films from the early 1900s to the early teens.

  3. Yes, I know this song. OK, I surrender. The 90's had some good songs, now that you've reminded me. But I'm still an 80's gal.
