Paper Scratcher (3:14)

Cover of Blind Melon

From Blind Melon and 14 other releases

This one’s about some homeless man the band would pass on their walk home from grabbing coffee in the mornings. Some days, he would be loaded and not remember them (as he scratched out private parts of pictures from magazines,) and other days carry on a normal conversation about life in general. What a trip.

    I think Blind Melon is one of the most underrated bands of all time. Most people think of them as the band that had that one song with the quirky video with a girl in a bee costume. If people would have listened to the album, they would have discovered on of the greatest bands of the 90's. [2]

    My favorite blind melon song, the little solo at about 2:27 always puts a mile on my face.
