Listen to Hootie and the Blowfish’s ‘Only Wanna Be With You‘ from This Is Us
I’m throwing this song up late tonight because I heard it on the latest episode of the NBC TV series This Is Us earlier in the day (Season 2, Episode 5, “Brothers“), and it has been bouncing around in my head ever since. It is also a track that is just as brilliant today as it was when it was first released in 1995 on Hootie and the Blowfish‘s superb debut album Cracked Rear View.
Hootie and the Blowfish’s ‘Only Wanna Be With You‘, of course.
A song that was written as pretty much an homage to Bob Dylan but, which sadly, caused Dylan to sue Hootie and the Blowfish for ‘copyright infringement’. Would have been nicer if he had just accepted the respects the band wanted to pay to him, wouldn’t it?
Watch the official music video for Hootie and the Blowfish’s ‘Only Wanna Be With You‘ below. And soon it will be bouncing around in your head as well.
