|April showers bring April DLC, and what better to start off with than Blues Traveler and LEN?
The debut single from Blues Travelers fourth album four, Run-Around was a breakthrough hit for the band. As a single, it broke into the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, while the album itself made a top 10 appearance on the Billboard 200 chart. The song won the band their first Grammy in 1995, netting the win for Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group. Since then, its become a staple of Blues Traveler live performances and even re-charted in 2014 during its 20th anniversary. This Blues Traveler song features THREE harmonica solos for the guitarist, cranking up the difficulty. Not to be outdone, the vocals are intricate and ever-changing. Like Hook before it, this ones the highest tier possible on vocals.
Currently featured in DropMix, Steal My Sunshine marks the first LEN song in Rock Bands library. Leading off their 1999 release You Cant Stop the Bum Rush, the song became an overnight hit. The sheer volume of radio plays forced their label to push up the albums release date up nearly a month to meet the demand. The songs momentum then continued, with top 10 placements on the Hot 100, Top 40 Mainstream, Modern Rock Tracks, and other charts. The instruments loop through the song, providing a great chance to sing and play an instrument at the same time. The beginning of the song features a conversation charted between two harmony lines, which is great for those interested in talking to their friends! Theres also a short guitar lick during the choruses that may be new to your ears.
