In the mid 90’s, you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing Hootie and the Blowfish. Their debut album did something like 15-times platinum, and had close to a half-dozen singles. I was *this* close to seeing them live (one of the local bars in my college town was one of their regular touring stops in their early days).
Like most people that lived through the time, I got more than a little burned out by the heavy airplay, but in going back some fifteen years later, a large number of the songs still hold up. In fact, I’m not above running through their Greatest Hits collection.
This track was one of their later hits (read: not on the debut album) and is actually one I was unaware of having a video until scouting for thise week’s selection.
