Hello
I’ve waited here for you
Everlong
Tonight I throw myself in two
Out of the red
Out of her head she sang
Come down and waste away with me
Down with me
Slow, how you wanted it to be
I’m over my head
Out of her head she sang
And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang
Breathe out
So I can breathe you in
Hold you in
And now
I know you’ve always been
Out of your head
Out of my head I sang
And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang
And I wonder
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when
“Everlong” was composed against the foundation of the separation of Dave Grohl’s first marriage to picture taker Jennifer Youngblood. Having returned home to Virginia for Christmas 1996, Grohl transformed the underlying riff into a total melody and composed the verses in the wake of succumbing to Louise Post of the band Veruca Salt: “That song’s about a girl that I’d fallen in love with and it was basically about being connected to someone so much, that not only do you love them physically and spiritually, but when you sing along with them you harmonize perfectly.”

The music video for “Everlong” was designated for Best Rock Video at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards. The strange, ironical video for the tune was coordinated by Michel Gondry. The running time of the video surpasses that of the first form of the melody; this adaptation is utilized just for the video. In spite of the fact that Taylor Hawkins shows up in the video as the drummer, Dave Grohl really plays the drum track on the first collection recording, as Hawkins had not yet joined the band. The music video is, to some extent, a spoof of the film The Evil Dead.

The video begins with a high contrast shot of Smear and Mendel (dressed as Teddy Boys) outside of a house where Grohl and Hawkins (playing his better half) evidently live. The video at that point advances to Grohl’s fantasy, in which he is Sid Vicious at a gathering that Hawkins’ character (playing Nancy Spungen) is getting bothered by Mendel and Smear. The video changes to Hawkins’ fantasy, in which his character is perusing a book, when, out of the blue, an as far as anyone knows undead being creeps up from the section of flooring (ridiculing Evil Dead.) The video advances back to Grohl’s fantasy, when his hand amplifies and starts to assault Smear and Mendel, after which they vaporize, and wake up in Hawkins’ fantasy. Grohl awakens after he hears his telephone ring. In the interim, in Hawkins’ fantasy, Hawkins’ character attempts to fight off the zombies, while Grohl gets kindling. Hawkins’ at that point endeavors to call Grohl, to which point he awakens. Grohl understands Hawkins’ predicament, and endeavors to wake his character up, without much of any result. Grohl returns to rest, just to return in Hawkins’ fantasy. Grohl at that point continues to spare Hawkins and toss the zombies in the lake. The video advances back to genuine to demonstrate that Mendel and Smear are in the house. The video takes a strange wind as genuine Mendel and Smear fly out of the characters’ heads. Grohl and Hawkins wake up, and the band completes the video by playing out whatever remains of the melody.

The tune has since been deified by Grohl’s stripped down and enthusiastic live versions. It, for the most part completes shows (particularly on the grounds that its ardent tone stands out excessively from whatever remains of the setlist). It is eminent for being celebrated moderator David Letterman’s main tune, to the point where FF rescheduled their visit to play on his first show once again from heart medical procedure, and was the keep going melody played on the simple last show Letterman facilitated before resigning. It was highlighted in the cadence amusements Guitar Hero: World Tour and Rock Band 2, both released in 2008.

In Grohl’s words, ” That song’s about a girl that I’d fallen in love with and it was basically about being connected to someone so much, that not only do you love them physically and spiritually, but when you sing along with them you harmonize perfectly.”
