Throwback Tuesday- Third Eye Blind with Semi Charmed Life

This Throwback Tuesday let’s pretend it’s 1997. Gas was cheaper, living was easy, and Third Eye Blind was on the radio. Here’s a classic called “Semi-Charmed Life”.

It’s one of my favorite songs of all time, and maybe yours too, despite the drug reference. If you didn’t know, the song is about a drug user’s crystal meth addiction. The line “I want something else…” contains a reference to crystal meth in the song. Stephen Jenkins of Third Eye Blind explained on the HBO show Reverb that they intentionally put a chipper melody to the dark lyrical content.

“When I wrote ‘Semi-Charmed Life,’ the guitar riff was intended to have this sort of bright duh-nuhnuh-nunt, this shiny thing, because that was a feeling of speed. You know, it’s sort of a bright, shiny drug. And we all were sort of into hip hop, and so it has a hip-hop flow over it.”
