Song of the Day #663: ‘Something’s Always Wrong’ – Toad the Wet Sprocket

Another day I call and never speak
And you would say “Nothing’s changed at all”
And I can’t feel much hope for anything
If I won’t be there to catch you if you fall

Again
It seems we meet
In the spaces in between
You always say “It won’t be long”
No, but something’s always wrong

Another game of putting things aside
As if we’ll come back to them sometime
A brace of hopes
A pride of innocence
And you would say something has gone wrong

Again
It seems we meet
In the spaces in between
We always say “It won’t be long”
No, but something’s always wrong

    Toad is one of those bands that, before ever hearing any of their music, I assumed I would not like simply based on their name. The name just seemed so alternative-ish that I assumed they would be very on the fringe–either punky or grungy or something I just wouldn’t like.

    But I couldn’t have been more wrong, as I have generally liked everything I have heard from Toad, including this song. Just goes to show you can’t judge a “book by its cover.”

    This is a band I wish had never broken up. They put out just a few albums but every one was full of great stuff.

    Looking at the photo of these guys, I realize I could have pumped gas at the car next to any of them, and I would have no idea the guy was a toad. Or a wet sprocket?

    I like this song, though it’s a bit more mellow than what I associate with this band. Of course, there’s a good chance I’m thinking of a different band and that I don’t really know anything by this band at all.

    Regardless, this song makes me want to hear more.
