THE ROCK SONG OF THE DAY IS: THE CALLING - WHEREVER YOU WILL GO

Wherever You Will Go
"Wherever You Will Go" is a song by The Calling released on the first single of their debut album Camino Palmero.

It remains their most renowned and their most successful hit, peaking at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topping the Adult Top 40 for 23 weeks, setting a record for that chart behind Santana's hit song "Smooth" (lead singer Alex Band would later collaborate with Santana on an alternate version of that band's song "Why Don't You & I").

There were two videos shot for this song. The first was set in Mexico. The other, more well known, version relocates the band at the Los Angeles River, where they perform while a teenage soap opera plays in the foreground. A teenage girl gets her boyfriend's name tattooed on her shoulder, but when she finds him cheating with another girl, she flies into a rage. At the end of the video, she is seen with a new boyfriend (Drew Fuller) and a new tattoo, as her jealous ex looks on from his car.
