With the strummed guitar and striking words, "You cannot quit me so quickly / Is no hope in you for me," the Dave Matthews Band launched their first official top 40 pop hit single. Earlier singles had been ineligible to chart due to rules about what constituted an official single. "The Space Between" climbed to #22 on the Billboard Hot 100.
"Last Nite" was the second single from the garage rock renaissance ignited by the Strokes. It landed at #5 on the modern rock chart and just missed the Billboard Hot 100. The opening guitar figure is said to be borrowed from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' "American Girl."
Eve 6 seemed like a one-hit wonder after they failed to follow up their first hit single "Inside Out" which hit the top 40 in 1998. Then along came the midtempo, wistful "Here's To the Night" which landed inside the top 40 as well. It has since become a favorite graduation song.
