1997-Number 18 single.
Best Bit-At 1.27.David Grohl is down on record as saying that one of his musical influences was the Scottish boy band The Bay City Rollers,I honestly don’t know if he is pulling our legs or not.
After the demise of Nirvana(see also best songs 788) David Grohl formed the Foo Fighters(see also best songs 999) in 1994. Grohl chose the name from the UFOs and various aerial phenomena that werereported by Allied aircraft pilots in World War 2.
‘Everlong’ was written just after the breakup of Grohl’s first marriage to Jennifer Youngblood,he wrote the lyrics after falling for Louise Post of the band Veruca Salt,she can be heard singing backing vocals on this.
Of the song Grohl said ‘It’s about a girl that I’d fallen in love with and it was basically about being connected to someone so much,that not only do you love them physically and spiritually,but when you sing along with them you harmonise perfectly.’
‘And I wonder when I sing along with you,if everything could ever feel this real forever.’
