Hop in your time machine and let’s take a trip back to 1996 on this Thursday edition of The Fridge’s Video du Jour. The Wallflowers jam packed, 4x platinum release Bringing Down the Horse is still a staple in many of our iTunes catalogs. While The Wallflowers have released a total of five studio albums since 1992, none of their releaes reached the same pinnacle of success as Bringing Down the Horse and many even thought the band was done for good after Jakob Dylan’s solo effort Seeing Things in 2008. However, it was announced just this month by Jakob in Rolling Stone that The Wallflowers have no intentions of breaking up permantly and are even working on a new album as we speak.
So while we wait for The Wallflowers to release their 6th studio album, no better time to revisit one of the many fantastic songs crafted on Bringing Down the Horse. While the obivous choice for today’s Video du Jour would be “One Headlight,” I happen to be partial to “6th Avenue Heartache.” Lyrically the chorus grabs you and draws you in with its catchy line ”the same black line that was drawn on you / was drawn on me / and now it’s drawing me in” and the harmony complimenting Jakob’s voice is lended by another 90′s voice we know very well, Adam Duritz’s of Counting Crows. The tawngy guitar throughout the song interprets the lyrics very well and actually feels like its pulling you in to the song. Enjoy this 90′s classic and come back to see us at The Fridge for Friday’s Video du Jour.
