Iris spent an astounding 18 weeks at number one on the Billboard Adult Top 40, while also peaking at number one across various other Billboard genres: Hot 100 Airplay, Mainstream Top 40, and Modern Rock Tracks — also landing the number one spot in Australia, Canada and Italy.
This song uses seamless transitions from 4/4 time to 6/8 time. The acoustic guitar plays a 4/4 intro, and the drums kick-in on the verse in 6/8 time. The bridge rips back into 4/4, and the energy explodes.
Mike Malinin plays a drum part that’s both fitting and impressive at the same time. Nailing perfectly-placed power-fills around the toms, loose hi-hat articulations and incredible dynamics, Malinin’s track became a ’90s drumming staple.
