Hootie & The Blowfish owned 1995. Jonathan turned 16, I was still driving him to school, and we heard them a lot. Ben, turning 12, had just started to listen to the same music Jonathan liked and got energised by them as well.
As good as life gets.
When I told Jonathan I was posting a Hootie song, he reminded me that I had been prescient about Darius Rucker, noting that he had a great voice and style and would likely have a good solo career after they (inevitably) broke up. I hadn't remembered that - glad he did. Apparently Rucker is still working, an accomplishment in itself fifteen years later, and is now a country music singer. It fits, though I would never have predicted it.
I read the Wikipedia entry and found other oddments I hadn't known. Rucker sang for Sinatra at his 80th birthday and is a friend of Tiger Woods. It's hard to get those two thoughts into the same brain.
