5 Years Later, I'm Still Stunned @ Hootie and the Blowfish

CDI should just get over it and move on. It's been five years. Why do these things bother me so?.

Five years ago today, I wrote about the Best of Hootie and the Blowfish.

Watching this painful Leaf game, I needed a good laugh. I just got one.

It seems long forgotten bland bar band Hootie & the Blowfish released Best of Hootie and the Blowfish (1993 Thru 2003) this week. That's right, Hootie & the Blowfish have released a greatest hits compilation in an effort to squeeze every last cent out of 1994.

A glance at the track listing for Best of Hootie and the Blowfish (1993 Thru 2003) confirms my suspicions. The only tunes I recognize appeared on their mega-selling debut Cracked Rear View, except for their faithful cover of 54*40's "I Go Blind" which they recorded for the crap-com Friends. In other words, if you're one of the millions who already owns Cracked Rear View, you already own the best of Hootie & the Blowfish.

Time doesn't heal all wounds.

Earlier this week I saw Vanilla Ice on YouTube applogizing for his music 'career'

Anyway, Hootie should apolologize too.. and not by putting out a 'greatest hits'

"I'm sorry, we sucked"

Elvis, nobody believes you got laid.

Mike, if you're still thinking about this 5 years later, you need a life. ;-)

I LOVED Hootie and the Blowfish. I named my first car Hootie.

Cracked Rear View would DEFINITELY be in my top 10 albums if I were stranded on a desert island.

You might think it sad... but it's true!

Vanilla's Ice's apology doesn't mean very much - he has been playing shows with MC Hammer lately - no lie!
