5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Song from a Great Band June 22, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was the song that first drew me to the Goo Goo Dolls. They are now my favorite band. The lyrics are heartfelt and touching, while the music itself complements the words. Although this song is a further departure from the harder-edged music that the Goo Goo Dolls used to specialize in, the song is so sincere that it represents a step forward for the band, not a step back. This song recalls one of their other hits, "Name," on the album "A Boy Named Goo." If you like "Iris," you may like "Name" or "Black Balloon" on the album "Dizzy up the Girl." It's also neat to listen to older material by the band, like the albums "Hold Me Up" and "Superstar Car Wash." They are both highly recommended, but they are a bit different from "Iris." The music is often faster and louder. "Iris" is a song that appeals to many different types of people, while the band's earlier work is less accessible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable July 23, 2001
By Alaria
Format:Audio CD
"Iris" is one of my all time favourite songs and the one that introduced me to the Goo Goo Dolls, now one of my favourite bands. I play it over and over again and never get tired of it. The lyrics are powerful, heartfelt and deep; the vocals and instrumentals are memorable and haunting. I haven't seen the movie "City of Angels", but this stands perfectly well as a love song that is both amazing and unusual. I can't wait to buy the GGD album "Dizzy Up The Girl". This is an unforgettable, unique song.

The lyrics and the emotion of the song makes it one of which I think is the best pieces of music ever created. Mike Manilin proves that he is one of the best drummers in the world, Robbie Takac timed the bass to perfection and it couldn't have been sung any better than the way John Rzeznik sang it. I've had 'Dizzy Up The Girl', the album which this song is on for about 2 and a half years now and I have never got tired of listening to Iris and don't think I ever will. I encourage people to listen to the words as well as just thumping their heads to the sound... after all, why are songs written? Thing is... why are us British too stubborn to welcome their talent here? Open your ears ppl....

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome...Tear Jerking.....Best Songs Ever Written.... September 14, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This song can make anyone cry if you put your heart and soul into it. I remember when my boyfriend and I first broke up I played this song everyday on my CD player. My mother even knows the words to the song. I am disappointed that they didn't win a Grammy but at least they were nominated and that is what counts. I can't imagine anyone not liking this song. When my boyfriend and I got back together we both agreed that the words to that song are so deep and passionate they described him completely. Keep up the good work Goo Goo Dolls

5.0 out of 5 stars The most beautiful song in the world. March 20, 1999
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard this song, I was touched by the musical arrangement of the song. But when I sat down and listen to the words, it made me cry. The combination of the musical arrangement and the lyrics is PERFECT. There is no other way of putting it. The words of this song is a summary of what I want to feel when I fall love with someone. I think it touched many people because this song made them feel something special. This song will stay with us for a long time, because it is a classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this song! January 4, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Probably the Goo Goo Dolls best know, loved, love song out there! There isnt much you can say that is bad, so there will probably be tons of great reviews. The band also has some other really great songs and they should all be given a listen to once or twice in your life. So I recommend this song to anyone who has yet to hear this song and all there other songs to give it a listen and see what you think!

When I first heard the song 'Iris', I could definitly say that this song was one that would stick with my favourites for a long time. I am pleased that it was nominated for a few grammys. Lyrics: mesmerizing. Accompaniment: Perfect. I myself, could not have chosen a better band for this great song than the Goo Goo Dolls, but then, i'm just a reveiewer, so it's easy for me to say that. I also have to say that this song was infinitely appropriate for City of Angels. I however, I have yet to see the movie. Closing, this is a hypnotising song, with it's intact lyrics and and ideal band to do it.
