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


I 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.
