90s at 9 'Life's Been A Whole Lot Better Since...'

The whole band may have writing credits, but the song is personal to lead singer, Chris Barron.

Spin Doctors "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" was released in 1992 as the lead single from their 1991 debut album Pocket Full of Kryptonite." It reached #17 on the Billboard Hot 100, #12 on the Mainstream Top 40, and #2 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks.
Many people thought the song was written about lead singer, Chris Barron's ex-girlfriend because they had broken up just weeks before he introduced the song to the band, but it is actually about Barron's step mother. 
Barron's step mother was a huge negative part of his life. He had to drop out of Bennington College in Vermont, where he was studying ceramics, when she spent his tuition money on (according to Chris) "a Ferrari Dino and a lynx and a mink and a couple dozen Saks Fifth Avenue suits."
The song "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" is Barron's way of saying he is happy she left the family. "There is an irony to the fact that my stepmom used to tell me that I would be a guitar-playing janitor and that I would live in the basement of the high school and 'play guitar for the rats,'" Barron told Songfacts. "They say success is the best revenge, and I certainly savored the irony that she was so unkind to me in regards to my future and my career, and that my future and career were assured by a song that I wrote about her."

I'm a Central Wisconsin girl born and raised. I grew up in Port Edwards and participated in cheerleading, basketball, volleyball and softball as well as many clubs like National Honor Society, SADD, yearbook and forensics. I was a very busy high school student and still managed to get good enough grades to go to college at UW-Stevens Point where I was just as busy between working 3 jobs including executive staff positions at the campus alternative rock radio station and volunteering at the campus television station.

After graduation I thought I would take my BA in Mass Communications with emphasis in Broadcasting and Journalism and Minor in Political Science and become a big time reporter in some major city. But instead my internship with our news station here at Midwest Communications turned into a part-time job and opened the door to the morning show co-host position at WDEZ. After 9 1/4 years of fun in the mornings I was promoted to Assistant Brand Manager and moved to The Workday Getaway.

I couldn't deny my love for rock anymore! It was time dive head first into the genre I spent my formative years listening to day in and day out. When the opportunity arose for me to become the Brand Manager for Rock 94.7 and host the morning show I couldn't pass it up.

I'm so happy that I stayed in Central Wisconsin I couldn't imagine raising my three daughters anywhere else.
