There are certain songs that take you back. During the 90’s there were so many great bands that were highly acclaimed but truly never got their due. Jawbox is one of those bands. They had the songs and talent but, sadly didn’t have the label support, thus causing things to not go their way. No matter what though, Jawbox left a lasting legacy of great songs and albums. This morning while on my way to work with my iPod on random, I heard a song I haven’t heard in some time and once it started, it immediately took me back to 1996. The song is “Iodine” from Jawbox’s self titled (and final) album. This song is undoubtedly one of the best songs I’ve ever heard from this band. It’s melancholy yet sweet and full of life. “Iodine” is also one of those songs that if it were released today would probably be huge.
