Throwback Of The Day.....Puddle Of Mudd "Blurry"
Puddle of Mudd is one of my all time favorite rock bands because of the connection they made with this song "Blurry". Released on their debut album "Come Clean" The song is the band's best known song, reaching the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks and Hot Modern Rock Tracks charts for ten and nine weeks, respectively. This soon propelled the single to mainstream success, reaching the #5 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay and Billboard Hot 100. The song is also the band's highest selling U.S. single ever, with sales of 753,000 copies, as of 2010.
"Blurry" is about a break-up, as well as cowardice. The song was primarily written about how lead singer Wes Scantlin misses his son, Jordan.
It is best known for its refrain, from which it derived its secondary name: "Can you take it all away? / Can you take it all away? / When you shoved it in my face / This pain you gave to me". Guitar One magazine named Ardito's “Blurry” harmonic riff as one of its “Top Ten Riffs of the Decade.....How can you not love a heart felt song by a rock band? Love it....
