Off the soundtrack of Empire Records comes the Gin Blossoms' lat- est hit, "Till I Hear It From You." The disc also includes new music by The Cranberries, Toad the Wet Sprocket and Better Than Ezra. I like the Gin Blossoms' rock style. This release also offers listeners an interest- ing question: Should you believe what others tell you about someone important in your life? The guy in the song hears rumors that every- thing in his love relationship is not good. Yet he wonders if what others are telling him is trustwor- thy. Perhaps "they are just jealous and jaded." He decides that "as far as I know, nothing's wrong until I hear it from you." He makes a good decision. Nothing replaces straightforward communication When it comes to understanding where a relationship is headed. This is true for any type of relationship, not just romance. If two friends react to what others say about each of them, their friendship could eas- ily get hurt. Friendship is too important to allow others' words to determine how the friends will treat each other. Of course, you're going to take notice of what is said to you by others about a friend or someone you are dating. However, don't overreact. Instead, ask yourself: Does this comment seem to hold true based on what I know of this person? Trust own answer. If you still feel uncomfortable, it is directly with the other person. Tell this that something you heard is bothering you and that you need to share your ss. Take full responsibility for these Make clear that your purpose in these feelings is not to put the other )n the sive. Rather, you want to keep the between the two of you as clear as possible, of hidden fears or questions.

Don't allow rumors to direct your responSeS a relationship with a friend, parent or dating t ner. But do pay attention to your feelin what you hear. Decide how you can respond in a loving way toward the person you care about. (Your comments are always welcome. address: Charlie Martin, RR 3, Box 182, IN 4 7635.)
