Goo Goo Dolls - Iris

"Iris" is a song by American alternative rock band the Goo Goo Dolls. Originally written for the soundtrack of 1998 film City of Angels, the song was later included on the band's sixth album Dizzy Up the Girl. "Iris" has contributed greatly to the band's success. The song's time signature changes from 4/4 to 3/4 and back a number of times and features an unusual guitar tuning in which most of the strings are tuned to D, lending the guitar a chorus-like effect. This song is not only one of the biggest alternative rock staples of the 1990s, it is also one of the biggest crossover hits to date crossing over from modern rock radio to pop and adult contemporary radio, all hitting number one on the formats and being the most played song of 1998 for all formats.
