Hootie and the Blowfish reunite—and we still want to hold their hands
Know how there are just some songs that make you feel stuff? Like, no matter where you are, or what you’re doing, when that song comes on the radio it’s like you’re suddenly back in the early ’90s and everything is amazing? Hootie and the Blowfish’s “Hold My Hand” is that kind of song. So when the guys performed it on The Late Show with David Letterman last night, it made us feel so many ways, all of them good.
As Letterman noted just before the guys started singing, they made their television debut back in 1994. (“Oh my god, is that possible?” Letterman exclaims!) Over two decades ago, they sang, “Hold My Hand.” And today, they still sound exactly the same, and now we just kinda want to know if we can ever expect a new album from them.
The guys will reunite again for their annual Homegrown Concert in early August of this year. It takes place in South Carolina and every year during this two-day event, they also host “Hootie’s Back to School Roundup,” which helps students in the area get ready for the new year with needed school supplies. Amazing, just like the performance on Letterman below.
Check it out, and be prepared to sing along — come on, you know all the words. And if you want a major flashback Friday, here’s their original ’94 video.
