Music Monday - Stay (I Missed You)

I love this song so much. I loved it when it came out when I was 14. I love it to this day. I love singing it at the top of my lungs in the car. I also love Lisa Loeb. Did anyone watch her reality show about five years ago? She’s so cute. She was just looking for love so she could settle down, get married and have a baby. Well, she found it! She got married to Roey Hershkovitz in 2009, who is the music coordinator for Conan O’Brien and soon after they had baby girl, Lyla. She also started a line of eyewear. Who better to buy glasses from than someone who looks so great in them?

Lisa was the first artist to have a number one song without a record deal. She was discovered by Ethan Hawke who lived across the street from her in NYC and ran in similar theater circles. He saw her perform the song and gave a demo to Ben Stiller who was directing the movie Reality Bites. Ben put it on the soundtrack to the movie and the rest was history.

Ethan Hawke directed the music video. Lisa is walking around in her actual apartment.  Besides it being really dirty, I’d love to live there! I really like that the video is just one continuous shot. Good job, Ethan.

Lisa Loeb - Stay (I Missed You)
You say I only hear what I want to
You say I talk so all the time so
And I thought what I felt was simple
And I thought that I don't belong
And now that I am leaving
Now I know that I did something wrong 'cause I missed you
Yeah, I missed you

Do you love this song as much as I do, or am I just a product of the '90s?
Man, I love the '90s.

OMG, I LOVE this song so much! I feel like people kinda forget about it and that's not ok! Thanks for reminding us of all it's glory!

You are my best friend for life. This is probably my all time favorite. Any time I hear it I HAVE to sing it!! Just last week it was just me and Violet driving when this came on and of course I had to belt it out. Gotta turn her on to 90s music early! ;)

I love the new layout! It looks great! You should start doing designs!!

So I used to hate this song...but then like 10 years after it came out I became a fan lol. I'm backwards like that!

OMG I completely forgot about this song. Great post! I might have to add this to the iPhone. Love your new design too.

I don't know how anyone can't like this song. And yep, you have to sing it at the top of your lungs for the full effect :)

This song came on this morning on the way to work. Totally put a smile on my face and took me back to high school.
