"Sucked Out" as written by and John Davis....
Look around could it bring somebody down
If I never made a sound again?
In your eyes you've already spread my thighs
And you're rocking to the next big thing
Kissing the bride 45 minutes a side
This was my dream played out rocking routine
Who sucked out the feeling?

Where'd you go now that everybody knows
And we did a couple shows out there?
Look at me I can write a melody
But I can't expect a soul to care
Kissing the bride, 45 minutes a side
This was my dream, played out rocking routine

Who sucked out the feeling?

Kissing the bride, 45 minutes a side
Who sucked out the feeling?

    General Commentthis is about a wedding singer who is at a wedding but thinks he is the most important person there and it's his big day and not theirs

    General Commenti have a different theory. maybe the character in the song was a wedding singer, yes, but he kissed the bride only 45 minutes after her wedding. "where'd you go now that everybody knows" sort of points to that. and he's saying now that he's been with her she doesn't really care about him anymore and he doesn't feel like he's worth anything. and it's like there's no feeling left in playing, because it used to be all he had, then he met her and she broke his heart, now nothing matters.

    General CommentThis song is about the record business. How it was their big dream to make it, and how reality just kinda sucked it all out of them like a drag on a cigarette. They were discovered and given a record deal, and for all their hard work, and the fact that the dream really did come true, the company and the fans have gotten their rocks off, and have moved on to the next artist, the next new sound. Like a new bride who has been deflowered, the wedding's over and this is the rest of your life. So they're talking about the casual music fan, and the fickle company man who only cares about the dollar. '45 minutes a side' i think refers to old fashioned wax or vinyl LPs. He's kind of waking up from the dream, wondering what the heck happened. Who sucked out the feeling?

    General CommentI saw these guys live once about... damn, I guess it was like 6 years ago. I forgot about them until like 3 months ago, GREAT stuff. They remind me of Nada Surf a lot, not because of the sound, but because of the time period I guess.

    General Commenthahaha... i can see the wedding singer idea. that's a marvelous idea if that was his intention. this is one of the better songs of that period. its not deep or intesely meaningful, but its so damn fun to listen to. makes me wanna dance in place.

    General CommentThis is definetly one of the lost treasures of the mid 90's, and I completely concur with watchthefireworks about Nada Surf. I remember that summer when both of these videos were all over MTV. I belive it was 96. Some real memory's with this one.
