How To Play Iris Guitar Chords: By The Goo Goo Dolls

Iris: Music Video By The Goo Goo Dolls

 

FROM THEIR Wiki:  iris-guitar-tablature

“Iris” is a song by American alternative rock band Goo Goo Dolls. Originally written for the soundtrack of 1998 film City of Angels, the song was later included on the band’s sixth albumDizzy Up the Girl. “Iris” has contributed greatly to the band’s success. The song’s time signature changes from 44 to 34 and back a number of times and features an unusual guitar tuning in which most of the strings are tuned to D, lending the guitar a chorus-like effect.

goo goo dolls irisBesides becoming one of the biggest alternative rock staples of the 1990s, “Iris” also remains one of the biggest crossover hits in the history of popular music, crossing over from modern rock radio to pop and adult contemporary radio, reaching number one on all of these formats and becoming the most played song of 1998 for all formats.

Upon its release, “Iris” became second of a string of hits from the film’s soundtrack, City of Angels: Music from the Motion Picture. (The first was Alanis Morissette’s “Uninvited” and the third was Sarah McLachlan’s “Angel”.) The song debuted at #66 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart on April 18, 1998, and eventually spent a record of 18 weeks at number one in Hot 100 Airplay. However it was not allowed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 because no commercial single had been released. In December 1998, just after the song airplay has peaked, the rules changed to allow airplay-only songs onto the chart. As a result, the song debuted and peaked at number 9 and stayed on the chart for 14 weeks. On the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, “Iris” peaked at number eight. The song was the band’s 2nd number one hit on the Modern Rock Tracks chart since their 1995 hit “Name” and Iris stayed at number one for five weeks and the song also hit number one on the Mainstream Top 40 chart for four weeks. The song spent a then-record 17 weeks at number one on the Billboard Adult Top 40 chart (beating No Doubt’s 15-week run at number one with “Don’t Speak” in 1996-97). The Goo Goo Dolls performed the song on October 20, 2001 at Madison Square Garden as part of theThe Concert for New York City to raise money for victims of the September 11 attacks.

The song was also a major international hit. “Iris” spent 31 weeks on the charts and peaked at number five on the Irish Singles Chart; it is the thirteenth biggest-selling single there.

“Iris” initially peaked at number 50 in the UK in August 1998. On 2 October 2011, following performances by auditionees on The X Factor, the song re-entered the UK Singles Chart at number three. In May 2013, the song charted at number 12 after it was covered by Britain’s Got Talent contestant Robbie Kennedy.

This song was also used in the production of The Bear by Anton Chekov performed by Rebecca Gove and Ioannis Bakogeorgos. Besides the song’s success on the charts, “Iris” enjoyed critical acclaim. At the 41st Grammy Awards, “Iris” received nominations for “Record of the Year” and “Pop Performance by a Duo or Group.” The song also garnered Johnny Rzeznik a “Song of the Year” nomination.[5] The single was certified Platinum by the RIAA on August 18, 2008. The song was used frequently in the British comedy Gavin and Stacey.

The song was ranked at number 39 on Rolling Stone‍ ’s list of the 100 greatest pop songs.[6]
In October 2012, “Iris” was ranked number one on Billboard‍ ’s “Top 100 Pop Songs 1992-2012” chart, which ranked the top songs of the first 20 years of the Mainstream Top 40/Pop Songs chart. The list also featured the Goo Goo Dolls’ hits “Slide”, ranking at number nine, and “Name” at number 24. The Goo Goo Dolls are the only musicians to have three songs on the list, two breaking the top 10 and all three falling within the top 25. They are also the only musicians that have back to back singles (Iris, 1998 and Slide, 1999) featured on the list.

 

Iris Lyrics: By The Goo Goo Dolls

And I’d give up forever to touch you
‘Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be
And I don’t wanna go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
When sooner or later it’s over
I just don’t wanna miss you tonight

And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can’t fight the tears that ain’t coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah, you bleed just to know you’re alive

And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
