Mazzy Star’s dreamy 1994 lullaby Fade Into You is considered one of the most iconic songs of the decade, and the magic behind it is simple.
The alternative piece of dream pop became a teenage soundtrack, with it’s repetitive words of heartache and longing on top of lingering slide guitar and piano. But the band’s guitarist and producer David Roback said they never planned on writing a song that would help define a generation.
When it was released, the fuzzy, dark tune from the Californian band wasn’t a number one hit. In the US, it peaked at number three on Billboard’s Modern Rock charts. But 24 years later, it has featured in 28 movies and television shows.
