Iris (4:50)

Cover of Dizzy Up the Girl

From Dizzy Up the Girl and 25 other releases

“Iris” is a song by American band the Goo Goo Dolls. Originally written for the soundtrack of 1998 film ‘City of Angels’, staring Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan, the song was later included on the band’s sixth album Dizzy Up the Girl. The acoustic guitar in the song gives a distinctive sound as it is in an odd tuning, with 5 of the 6 strings tuned to D. This gives a ringing effect similar to a 12-string guitar. “Iris” has been one of the Goo Goo Dolls’ most defining song in terms of its contribution to the band’s future success. It is the longest charting number one single in Billboard Hot 100 Airplay history with 18 consecutive weeks in the number one spot.

And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now
