The simplicity of the song showed off their talent, especially the powerful vocal performance. They may be remembered as catchy bland 90s-pop fare, but Hootie were actually really versatile and more than above average. This song should be the flagship of that.
This was the song that I remember hearing on the radio when I was a kid. I loved this song so much back when I was young. Now that I'm going back to the 90s I'm revisiting what seems like old friends. God I love music.
