"Nearly Lost You" is a 1992 single by grunge band Screaming Trees. Perhaps their best-known song, it was a moderate success on modern rock radio, partly because of its appearance on the soundtrack to the 1992 Cameron Crowe film Singles. In addition to the soundtrack, Nearly Lost You also appeared on the band's 1992 breakthrough album Sweet Oblivion. Barrett Martin, the drummer here, also worked with Stone Temple Pilots and R.E.M. . According to the Nearly Lost You Songfacts, his latest accomplishment is to be ordained a Zen priest, as of 2000. Read more on Last.fm.
