"The Difference"

"One Headlight" is a song by American band The Wallflowers. The song was written by lead singer Jakob Dylan, and produced by T-Bone Burnett. It was released in November 1996 as the second single from the band's 1996 album, Bringing Down the Horse. In 2000, the song was listed at #58 on Rolling Stone and MTVs list of "100 Greatest Pop Songs of All Time".[2] The song is notable for being the first song to reach No. 1 on all three of Billboard's rock airplay charts - Alternative Songs, Mainstream Rock Songs and Adult Alternative Songs.[3]

Dylan has said that the song is about "the death of ideas."[4]
