“Hold My Hand” by Hootie and the Blowfish

Hootie and the Blowfish get a fair amount of scorn from the rock-snob set because the followed the model of their Easy-Listening predecessors more than most other Adult Alternative bands, but their music ranges from okay to really good, and this one is easily their best. It has a soulful, almost bluesy quality that didn’t really show up that much in their other work, and it does a great job of showing off Darius Rucker’s marvelous voice, which was always the band’s biggest asset.

Verdict: Good
