It’s true, you see Lisa lived across the the street from her friend Ethan Hawke & gave him a demo of this song.  He in turn, gave it to his friend Ben Stiller, who used it in a movie he was making at the time.

As for the video, it was actually filmed in two takes in the apartment where Loeb was staying at the time, directed by none other than Ethan Hawke himself.  And the Hot Librarian’ look had its humble beginning …

B-Side Trax:

Here’s what aired last week on B-Side Alternative and a link to a recent show:

Monday:               Aerials – System of a Down
Tuesday:               Glamour Boys – Living Colour
Wednesday:         Stay – Lisa Loeb
Thursday:             Little Things – Bush
Friday:                  Moving in Stereo – The Cars

Many stations use this vignette as a lead-in or the centerpiece for their retro or flashback shows. Some use it as a stand-alone or even combine each week’s shows to form a 30-minute weekend retro feature. That flexibility is a benefit for individual stations to use to their advantage.

Here’s a week on B-Side Classic Rock, plus a show link: 

Monday:                Fire Lake – Bob Seger
Tuesday:                Sunglasses at Night – Corey Hart
Wednesday:          Ice Cream Man – Van Halen
