Radio 86, side B, track 2: “Name” by The Goo Goo Dolls

Goo Goo Dolls - NameOh, Goo Goo Dolls, I love this song so much.  It’s so sweet and melancholy, and that line “I think about you all the time”. . .yeah, that’s the stuff.  But I’m just finding out that this song is about Kennedy, the MTV VJ?  Seriously, Goo Goo Dolls?  I mean, good for her, I guess, that she inspired such a beautiful song, but I’ve gotta question y’all’s judgment if Kennedy is causing you this much angst.  She always reminded me of Judy Gold except without any of the charisma or talent.  I really hope that next time I hear this I’ll have forgotten who this song is about but I’m afraid I won’t and that it will forever be tarnished.  I’m glad that you didn’t tell me her name back then, and I REALLY wish you would have kept it to yourself.
