Music Video Of The Day...

Puddle of  Mudd

"Blurry" was released in October 2001 as the second single from the album Come Clean.
The song is the Puddle of Mudd's best known song, reaching the number-one spot on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks and Hot Modern Rock Tracks charts for ten and nine weeks, respectively. This soon propelled the single to mainstream success, reaching the number 5 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay and Billboard Hot 100. The song is also the band's highest selling U.S. single ever, with sales of 753,000 copies, as of 2010. Additionally, the song's writers, Wes Scantlin, Douglas Ardito, and Jimmy Allen won ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) Song of the Year and Pop Song of the Year for this tune. "Blurry" also won 2 billboard awards in 2002, for "modern rock track of the year" and "rock track of the year". It also received the Kerrang! Award for Best Single. "Blurry" reached #8 in the UK Singles Chart on its release there in June 2002, becoming the band's highest charting single in the United Kingdom.

My thoughts: One of my favs from POM to this day the meaning of the song gets to me...Towards the end of the video it shows Jordan (Wes's actual son) driving off in the back seat with a man and a woman in the front seat (presumably Jordan's mother and stepfather), as Wes watches the car sadly, Which unfortunately many Fathers have to deal with. Did you know that the video was directed by Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst...I think he did a pretty good job of getting the meaning out there~
