The Past is Gone But Something Might Be Found To Take Its Place: "Hey Jealousy"

Recently, for a reason that is boring, I was faced with the knowledge of what is the very first song I ever purchased from iTunes.

It's "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" by The Proclaimers.

Welllllllllll I don't want to read too much into that, but along with the knowledge of the first song came the knowledge of the second song:

The song: Gin Blossoms, "Hey Jealousy"; 1992

There's not too much to read into that either other than, hey remember this song and how it's kinda good?

Just wanted to point that out.
