  • One good song a good band does not make.
  • I KNOW WHO I WANT TO TAKE ME HOME!
  • [track artist=Semisonic]Closing Time[/track] is such a great song and they had a lot of potential! Too bad they didn't go too far.
  • Nobody knows it but you've got a secret smile and you use it only for me :)

  • Semisonic really got a bad rap due to the alarming popularity of their song Closing Time and their subsequent bomb of an album Chemistry. Few remember that they blossomed from the indie darlings Trip Shakespeare, homegrown from Minneapolis’s fertile college rock scene. It was only after the business piranhas of LA finished their feeding frenzy over Closing Time that a skeleton of what once was an honest Midwestern rock band was left in their wake. Semisonic’s first album, the grittier, hook heavy Great Divide, is still my most listen to record of all time. It holds this statistical title because there was a good two years of my early childhood where that album was the only thing I listened to apart from a Beach Boys compilation my mother bought for me.
  • Siento que podría dedicarle las letras de las canciones de Semisonic a una persona :'D desde F.N.T.: ``I'm surprised that you've never been told before...'', pasando por Secret Smile: ``Nobody knows it but you've got a secret smile and you use it only for me'', hasta llegar a Act Naturally: ``I was just a fool for you and there was nothing I could do''. Pero como dijo Munson en un concierto de Trip Shakespeare (aunque no refiriéndose a lo mismo), She's not there anymore...
  • google for Todd in the Shadows, his "One Hit Wonderland" Episode on Closing Time is just great and btw. Get a Grip helped me through some hard times ^^
