Goo Goo Dolls – Black Balloon (album: Dizzy up the Girl 1998)

This song is by Goo Goo Dolls. When they have released “Iris” I was really impressed by that song. I’ve decided to buy the album. It’s pretty great, a little bit mushy but sometimes us girls like it. This is a song that I like very much. The lead singer John Rzeznik looks like Keith Urban’s evil twin brother and he has a really cool voice.

Pretty mushy song but I like it! It’s about a guy that trying to save his girlfriend from her drug addiction. He tells her how lucky he is that she chose him from all others and that she is special and deserves to be loved and bla bla bla , told you it’s quite mush but it’s worth listening to, so I hope you enjoy it ...
