Song of the Week: “The Promise” by When In Rome

Title: The Promise

Artist: When In Rome

Release: June 1988

Peak Chart Position: #11

Did You Know: Not only was When In Rome a one-hit wonder with “The Promise”, but the band only released a single album before breaking up. How would’ve the world been different if the band had stayed together? No one knows for sure, but most experts speculate that Justin Beiber would never have been born, the Mariners would have won multiple World Series, and zombies would occupy 90% of retail jobs. If you think you recognize this song, it’s probably from Napoleon Dynamite, where it was featured in the end credits.
