And I Can’t Get Enough: Why My Love for Third Eye Blind’s Self-Titled Debut Album Goes Deeper than Bones by Lindsey Hileman

Though I can’t place the exact moment I heard Third Eye Blind’s first single, Semi-Charmed Life, I know it entered my consciousness sometime during its early rotation on Bay Area radio stations in the spring of ‘97. I had been aware of it enough to know that I loved it and to be thrilled when it played as the last song of my eighth grade graduation dance at Miller Junior High. This would be the last song of my last middle school experience.
