I rarely post late #sundaysoother songs but it's still 9:53 pm on Sunday here in AZ. I dig the mellow groove of this track, which has been on my to-post list for a long time. The song was written by lead singer Nick Hexum about his then-fiancee, Nicole Scherzinger. She appears briefly in the official video; they broke up before she joined the Pussycat Dolls and met Lewis Hamilton. I heard the song this past Friday on a boat in the Gulf of California, and it's the perfect vacation song. It's a bit of a break from the mid-90s sound that made them famous - and it's my favorite song by them.

Also, I have long held the opinion that the first half of the guitar solo on the bridge is a slightly reworked version of the melody from the 1952 song “You Belong To Me.” Does anyone else hear it? 311 gives no one other than Hexum credit, but it would be a coy way of making sure Scherzinger knew the song was about their engagement.

The Platters version of “You Belong To Me” which is the one I know best: https://youtu.be/XCeNCvwEFU8
