46. Nine Days, “Absolutely (Story of a Girl)” (2000)

Nine Days didn't hang around too long either, but there was something sweet about this song.3

I remember seeing these guys when I was in college (they opened for Vertical Horizon, have some nostalgia!) and the crowd went wild for it.

Lines like "This is the story of a girl/ who cried a river and drowned the whole world/ and while she looked so sad in photographs/ I absolutely love her/ when she smiles" became ubiquitous in the AOL roleplay world at the time, too.2
