Toad the Wet Sprocket - “Walk on the Ocean”
I found the cassingle for this song on my bookshelf this morning as I was packing up my stuff for the big move next week.
Thing is, Toad the Wet Sprocket got zero respect and maybe they didn’t deserve it when considering the whole catalog, but this song is as perfect as 90’s alt-rock got.
Emotive, jangly, and warmhearted. If Michael Stipe was singing this instead, you would have thought it was the best REM song ever. That’s a fact.
