Change - Blind Melon
Blind Melon’s hit “No Rain” was literally inescapable in 1992. The happy sounding, yet lyrically depressing, tune took the band to a level of popularity that would lead to their undoing. Before that though, the group penned the song “Change.” “Change” is a song about finding hope in the darkness, a song about not giving up on your dreams not matter how bleak things look, and more than anything else, it’s about finding meaning in life through everything that changes. It is hard to find inspiration during those times, but “Change” inspires us to look for it in everything, no matter what others might say. It’s a shockingly mature song for a band not known for that, but it is even more powerful due to it.
