We have seen a lot of bands together, especially this year. However, the Goo Goo Dolls definitely deserve a post of their own. I have known and liked them since before Cassie. However, i had never seen them in concert and was clearly not as big of a fan as Cassie is.
Cassie has traveled far and wide to see them. She has friends across the country who enjoy the fandom together. And since we have been together I have joined her on some of the trips to go see them outside of New Orleans (from down the highway in Biloxi to Dallas, Tx).
If there is any one song of them that would be “ours” it would have to be “I’ll Stay With You”. Part of that is because for a brief period of time before landing my job at Pan American Life I worked at Radio Shack to help make ends meet. They had a promotional CD that played through the store through one quarter and one of the songs on that CD was, you guessed it, that song. It never got tiresome (I think it is one of their best songs) and when they moved on to a different CD I managed to keep the old one and I gave it to Cassie.
I have sung it at Karaoke a few times, but only when she was with me. It is probably the only Goo song that I know better than she does. I will never get tired of hearing the song because whenever it comes on I think of her and it makes me smile.
