First up was ‘Taffy,’ the album’s second single, and now we have ‘Do You Sleep?,’ the first single and a Billboard Top 20 hit.
But a few bars into ‘Taffy’ I realized that I know this song pretty well. And a quick sample of some other Tails tracks revealed the same. So I guess I gave this album enough of a listen back in the day to stick deep in my subconscious 23 years later.
Loeb has had a very limited amount of success but I’d guess what little she’s had can be largely attributed to her eye wear. Not to diminish her talents as a singer and songwriter, but it’s hard to deny the power of image in popular music. It’s kind of like Rhianna’s haircut, which seemed to get more press than her songs.
Aside from her glasses, Loeb is known for one thing, and that’s this song… ‘Stay.’
