Iris by Goo Goo Dolls

Summary

"Iris" is a song by American alternative rock band 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 to 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.

Besides becoming one of the biggest alternative rock staples of the 1990s, "Iris" also remains one of the biggest crossover hits in the history of popular music, crossing over from modern rock radio to pop and adult contemporary radio, reaching number one on all of these formats and becoming the most played song of 1998 for all formats.
