I Go Blind by Hootie & the Blowfish.

Remember this song? It was pretty popular in 1996 after the band recorded it for the Friends soundtrack. It made #3 on Adult Top 40 and #22 on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary. Something made me think of it today and I realized that I never hear it anymore.

I Go Blind was actually written by the Canadian alternative rock group, 54-40 and was originally released as a single in 1986. Ten years later, Hootie and Blowfish decided to do a cover which became a huge hit. Want to see the original? Click HERE.

I like the newer version better. My favorite thing about the song is the call and response throughout. It would have been great to do in my old lipsyncing band days…
