I graduated high school in 1994. That was also the year that I joined my first official band (a power trio called Odlid! – wanna hear?), and as someone in the Facebook group for our forthcoming 20-year High School Reunion recently pointed out – a little movie with Ben Stiller, Ethan Hawke and Winona Rider also came out that year… REALITY BITES (the 20th Anniversary Blu-ray comes out in April). Two decades later, it’s arguable what’s been more memorable: the movie, or the hit single it’s soundtrack spawned, “Stay (I Missed You)” by LISA LOEB and NINE STORIES.
For the latter, the years have been good, and Lisa’s still rockin’ for kids and parents alike, with the release of her two kindie records, CATCH THE MOON (with Elizabeth Mitchell) and CAMP LISA (with sales benefiting the Camp Lisa Foundation), and her recent grownup album, NO FAIRY TALE (produced by NEW FOUND GLORY’s Chad Gilbert). Now she’s hitting the road for a string of dates, and I’ve got ’em for you below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER.

Want a cool flashback? Since I already mentioned Lisa’s NEW FOUND GLORY connection, back in 2007, NFG released FROM THE SCREEN TO YOUR STEREO PART II (Get it: Amazon | iTunes), a sequel to their 2000 EP of soundtrack covers. The fifth track was a cover of “Stay (I Missed You)” that featured none other than Lisa Loeb herself. Check it out below…
