I’d assume it’s “Lightning Crashes”. I haven’t seen the movie, but it’s pretty much the only song I have ever heard by them.

It’s called The Dolphin’s Cry.

@Blondesjon- You beat me to it. Are you a Live fan as well?

flameboi's avatar

Thank you blondesjon :) that’s the song!

flameboi's avatar

Thank you all, sometimes I just forget the name of the songs, I guess I’m like Homer Simpson, whenever I learn something new, I push something old out of my head lol

@Dog….Yep Throwing Copper is in my top twenty of all time album list.

Oh, I’m glad someone figured this out, I was going to comment that I’d try to figure it out as I’ve got several of Live’s albums but wasn’t sure what song they’d chosen for that soundtrack. I also wanted to let buckyboy28 know that “Lightning Crashes” was just one of many “hits” they had, and was in my opinion not one of their better compositions. Hard to understand how someone could be familiar with that song but not I Alone or All Over You…from the same album, released within weeks of each other, and did almost as well on the charts. Anyway, they’ve got like 9 albums out, I’d suggest checking it out.

As an aside, I saw them live back in ‘95 (PJ Harvey and Veruca Salt opened…it was a hell of a show), I first got into them in late ‘91 or early ‘92…I loved Operation Spirit and Pain Lies on the Riverside off their first album (it wasn’t until their 2nd album when they really broke out). I liked them up through V, but they took a direction I didn’t much care for on Birds of Pray and I just kind of stopped following them after that.

Just one of my many favorite Live tunes- Turn My Head

Live takes me back in time to those glorious days when I learnt to smoke, ride my bmx and my skateboard, walking the park without shirt with a bunch of girls following my steps, having pizza and drinking beer at sunset with the guys, it was good to be 16 back then ohhh the mid/late 90’s… :D

It takes me back to my last days of college and my first days in the real world, of course when I was 16 (or at any point before or since), I didn’t skateboard, ride a bmx or smoke (and you wouldn’t catch me dead without my shirt on). But I know what you mean nonetheless, music can bring you back to an earlier time like nothing else. For me, Live brings back some interesting memories…I got their first album on cassette in ‘92, I didn’t make the switch to CDs for another year…no one else really seemed to be aware of them. I met this woman my age online in ‘93, a couple years before the web where all we had was IRC chat boards, we were both in our last days of college, she lived in Cleveland and I in northern Minnesota. We shared a number of things in common, including music, and I believe she even knew some of the guys from Live (or was at least aware of them from before they put out their first album), because she was from York, PA, and she worked promotions at her college so she had a few famous acquaintances…they may or may not have been among them, I don’t recall. I went to meet here, and after a brief fling, it just didn’t work out. A year later I met my (now) wife, and she too was aware of Live. That was ‘94, the year Thowing Copper came out, and one of the things we both liked to do and do a lot of was go to concerts. It also happened that my dad was smoking Camels at the time and he had tons of these Camel bucks but he didn’t want anything they were giving away, so he gave them all to me, because they started redeeming them for Ticketmaster gift certificates. I think this was one of the first of about 10 shows we managed to get into for free with those rewards. Those are the things I think of when I think of Live.

@dalepetrie
what a story, lurve to you!

Dog's avatar

Lurve all the way around.

Listening to Live takes me back to the days when I hung with a rock band trying to hit big time (never made it but ohhh the stories.).

Jam sessions and camping without a tent. Getting in the car and just driving- anywhere. Sometimes we ended up in San Francisco or Vegas.

Once we went to Death Valley and just partied there in the middle of nowhere. It was like being on another planet. no sound aside of Live and our voices. Not even insects.

Driving through the desert I always think of I Alone

@Dog – sweet! Fame is overrated anyway, it’s stuff like that you really remember in the end.

Dog's avatar

@dalepetrie True. It ended while we still had the passion to play, before it became a “job” so we have awesome memories. I have noticed that somehow passions change when it becomes a job. It owns you, your time, your creativity. Yes- Fame is very overrated.

In the desert we also played Queensryche. Cannot remember which album but now that you all have me thinking I am headed over to itunes to get it again.

dalepetrie's avatar

Empire maybe?

Dog's avatar

Yes- it was and I got it along with more singles I loved from the 90’s. It has been a great day of memories and awesome music. My CD collection was impounded years ago. (long story) I am slowly rebuilding.

dalepetrie's avatar

Just heard All Over You on the radio like 10 minutes ago…..

Dog's avatar

@dalepetrie Seriously? Are you near Los Angeles? If so what station?

dalepetrie's avatar

Not quite as far from L.A. as you can get, but close….Twin Cities, MN. It was on our hard rock station, 93X.

Dog's avatar

I wonder if I can tune it in on Wunderradio iPhone app.

dalepetrie's avatar

Live is aLIVE and well in MPLS/St. Paul. Was listening to 93X again today, and at 3pm heard Lakini’s Juice. Two Live songs in 24 hours, and I probably spent a grand total of 45 minutes listening to the station.

Dog's avatar

Damn! You are lucky! I will try to get it on the iPhone.

bittorrent works nicely as well.
