‘Walk On the Ocean’ by Toad the Wet Sprocket: Doyle’s ‘Not-So-Top-10′ playlist
This is, I believe, the first time I had requested a 1990s’ hit.
Toad the Wet Sprocket took their name from a Monty Python skit and were pretty successful in the first few years of the 90s. They hail from Santa Barbara, California and were known for their extensive touring schedule. Their first hit “All I Want” was their biggest, hitting #15 on the Billboard charts. They had a few other hits, 1994’s “Fall Down”and “Something Always Goes Wrong" and 1995’s “Good Intentions”, but the hit I requested was their only other top-twenty hit, “Walk On The Ocean”. It reached #18 in 1993, but that wasn’t enough for Big Joe; he ignored me, anyway.
