Jill's self-titled second album released in 1995 on Atlantic records. 

When I read someone say that I was a one-hit-wonder, I say, excuse me, I had…two hits -  “I Kissed a Girl" and “Supermodel”. Butt, there is so much more to this record. We have Vrbana Bridge, a tragic real life love story set during the Yugoslav wars.  “Theme From Girl in the Affair” is an imaginary theme song for an imaginary 1960s movie. "Houdini’s Box" is one of my most requested. The recording is actually from my old Tascam 4-track cassette recorder. We could never beat the demo. And there is "Karen By Night”, the story of my boss at the department store from when I sold shoes. I reads like a twisted spy show. And don’t forget “Kissed a Girl” (the ye olde original) was, I think, the first overtly queer song to hit the charts.
