It's 3 a.m. and you're all alone. One might even say that you're lonely. There's only one song playing over and over in your head, and it's one of Matchbox Twenty's.
That's right. The 1996 hit "3 AM" and more than a handful of others played by this Orlando group are forever part of our lives. Maybe ten generations down the line, some child will be born without their songs ingrained in their psyche, but until then, we will sing: "She says it's cold outside, and she hands me my raincoat/She's always worried about things like that."
Matchbox Twenty released an album last year North, which will likely be enjoyed by you or someone like you, and is performing at Hard Rock Live this March. Who knows, maybe Carlos Santana will show up to team up with Rob Thomas on "Smooth?" Would be regionally appropriate. Click on to see how to win your own pair of tickets.
