Bring It Back; Records I Remember: Hootie and the Blowfish

Hootie and the Blowfish.

All music fans have those specific CD’s or songs that immediately bring them back to a specific time in their life. It might be a happy time, a sad time, a fun time or a period of time. For whatever reason, this music speaks to us. It reminds us of our past. For me, one of these bands is Hootie and the Blowfish.

I liken Hootie to a time when I was very young and carefree. At an age when nothing mattered at all. I had no responsibilities and no obligations. Every summer I travelled with my fake dad, Paul, to his cottage in the Bruce Peninsula. We usually spent 10-14 days there swimming, eating, walking and exploring. We also did tons of driving: up to Tobermory to see the Chi-Chi-Mon ferry and eat great ice cream and fudge, down to Hepworth to golf and over to Lion’s Head to see all the boats. It was during these driving trips that Hootie and the Blowfish would certainly be in rotation in Paul’s tape deck. To this day, I still love Hootie. And I believe it is because I am reminded of the good times of my youth with my fake dad.

Do you have any bands or songs or records that bring you back? If so, what are they? Get at us.
