Song of the Day: Jewel – “Foolish Games”

Happy birthday wishes go out to Jewel, who turns 43 years old today. Written about a teenage love that went unrequited, this lovely, stirring ballad was originally the B-Side for the single “You Were Meant For Me.” Together, the two songs teamed up to own the airwaves and the Billboard charts 20 years ago, setting a record at the time for staying on the charts for 65 weeks. The songs ranked 17th in Billboard’s Hot 100 All-Time in 2013 and helped the album Pieces of You sell over 15 million copies. This song was also on the soundtrack to the movie Batman & Robin. Most would agree it was better than anything the movie had to offer.
