wtf @ “Hooch”

brigadier pudding (DJP), Friday, 2 August 2019 12:10 (eleven months ago) link

That is the appropriate response to 'Hooch'.

COOL DUDE'S ONLY, NO NERD'S ALOUD (Old Lunch), Friday, 2 August 2019 12:13 (eleven months ago) link

confession that I definitely thought "Hooch" was a Sugar Ray song all this time, even despite seeing & knowing the video

Okay, having now done some cursory research on the band Everything, I find that I was correct in my assumption that they are (ARE, not was) a group of college buddies. However, I was incorrect in my assumption that this song could only have been written by dudes sittin' around the quad, killin' time between devil stick sessions, because 'Hooch' is from their fourth album, released nearly a decade after the band's formation.

It's sick and sad and weird but I really need to hear their early work now.

one of the reasons i like "butterfly" now is bc i think the chili peppers sample sounds really great

xp I'm more interested in their 1999 cover of "Young Americans" from the Drop Dead Gorgeous soundtrack, which doesnt seem to have made it to youtube

Oh my god.

Why do I need to hear that so badly? What is this illness afflicting me?

I like Summer Girls isn’t even worth discussing in this poll.

Old Lunch sounds like a serious case of the freshy freshy

“Hakuna Matata,” a nihilist philosophy (One Eye Open), Friday, 2 August 2019 12:54 (eleven months ago) link

It just occurred to me that it may be helpful to have the lyrics all in one place where we can compare the craft and artistry side-by-side.

Everything - 'Hooch'

Who got the hooch
Who got the hooch
Who got the only sweetest thing in the world

The working day was long
And the road is grinding on
And your body's winding down again
The tribal fire's here
And the circle speaks so near
And the simple truth so very much clearer

Who got the hooch, baby
Who got the only sweetest thing in the world
Who got the love, who got the fresh-e-freshy
Who got the only sweetest thing in the world

The birds and bees will sing
The jams begin to ring
The good vibes flow from me to you
The evening turns to night
The fire and moonlight
The dance of all who came before

Who got the hooch, baby
Who got the only sweetest thing in the world
Who got the love, who got the fresh-e-freshy
Who got the only sweetest thing in the world

Let's get real, let's get heavy
Till the water breaks the levee
Let's get loose, loose, who got the hooch

LFO - 'Summer Girls'

Yeah, I like it when the girls
Stop by in the summer
Do you remember?
Do you remember
When we met, last summer?
New Kids On The Block
Had a bunch of hits
Chinese food makes me sick
And I think it's fly
When girls stop by
For the summer
For the summer
I like girls that
Wear Abercrombie and Fitch
I'd take her if I had one wish
But she's been gone
Since that summer
Since that summer

Hip-hop mama, spic n span
Met you one summer
And it all began
You're the best girl
That I ever did see
The great Larry Byrd, jersey thirty-three
When you take a sip
You buzz like a hornet
Billy Shakespeare wrote
A whole bunch of sonnets
Call me when you miss me
'Cause I can't speak baby
Something in your eyes
Really drove me crazy
Now I can't forget you
And it makes me mad
You left one day
And never came back
Stayed all summer
Then went back home
Macualay Culkin wasn't home alone
Fell deep in love but
Now we ain't speaking
Michael J. Fox was Alex P. Keaton
When I met you
I saw my name is Rich
You look like a girl
From Abercrombie and Fitch

New Kids On The Block
Had a bunch of hits
Chinese food makes me sick
And I think it's fly
When girls stop by
For the summer
For the summer
I like girls that
Wear Abercrombie and Fitch
I'd take her if I had one wish
But she's been gone
Since that summer
Since that summer

Cherry pants Coke
Crushed rocks till I boogie
Used to hate school
So I had to play hookie
Always been hip to the b ball style
Known to act wild and
Make a girl smile
Love New Edition and the Candy Girl
Remind me of you
Because you rock my world
You come from Georgia
Where the peaches grow
They drink lemonade
And speak real slow
You love hip-hop
And rock 'n' roll
Dad took off when
You were four years old
There was a good man
Named Paul Revere
I feel much better baby
When you're near
You love Fun Dip and Cherry Coke
I like the way you laugh
When I tell a joke
When I met you
I said my name is Rich
You look like a girl
From Abercrombie and Fitch

New Kids On The Block
Had a bunch of hits
Chinese food makes me sick
And I think it's fly
When girls stop by
For the summer
For the summer
I like girls that
Wear Abercrombie and Fitch
I'd take her if I had one wish
But she's been gone
Since that summer
Since that summer

In the summertime
Girls got it goin' on
Shake and wiggle to
A hip-hop song
Summertime girls
Are the kind I like
I'll steal your honey like
I stole your bike

Bugalute shrimp and pogo sticks
My mind takes me back
There oh-so quick
Let you off the hook
Like my man Mr. Limpit
Think about that summer
And I bug 'cause I miss it
Like the color purple
Macaroni and cheese
Ruby-red slippers
And a bunch of trees
Call you up but what's the use?
I like Kevin Bacon
But I hate Footloose
Came in the door
I said it before
Think I'm over you
But I'm really not sure
When I met you
I said my name is Rich
You look like a girl
From Abercrombie & Fitch

New Kids On The Block
Had a bunch of hits
Chinese food makes me sick
And I think it's fly
When girls stop by
For the summer
For the summer
I like girls that
Wear Abercrombie and Fitch
I'd take her if I had one wish
But she's been gone
Since that summer
Since that summer

In the summer girls come
And summer girls go
Some are worthwhile
And some are so-so
Summer girls come
And summer girls go
Some are worthwhile
And some are so-so
Summertime girls
Got it goin' on
Shake and wiggle
To a hip-hop song
Summertime girls
Are the kind I like
I'll steal your honey
Like I stole your bike

New Kids On The Block
Had a bunch of hits
Chinese food makes me sick
And I think it's fly
When girls stop by
For the summer
For the summer
I like girls that
Wear Abercrombie and Fitch
I'd take her if I had one wish
But she's been gone
Since that summer
Since that summer

Crazy Town - 'Butterfly'

Come my lady
Come come my lady
You're my butterfly, sugar baby
Come my lady
Come come my lady
You're my butterfly, sugar baby

Such a sexy, sexy pretty little thing
Fierce nipple pierce you got me sprung with your tongue ring
And I ain't gonna lie 'cause your loving gets me high
So to keep you by my side there's nothing that I won't try
Butterflies in her eyes and looks to kill
Time is passing I'm asking could this be real
'Cause I can't sleep I can't hold still
The only thing I really know is she got sex appeal
I can feel too much is never enough
You're always there to lift me up
When these times get rough I was lost, now I'm found
Ever since you've been around
You're the women that I want
So yo, I'm putting it down

Come come my lady
You're my butterfly, sugar baby
Come my lady you're my pretty baby
I'll make your legs shake
You make me go crazy
Come come my lady
You're my butterfly, sugar baby
Come my lady you're my pretty baby
I'll make your legs shake
You make me go crazy

I don't deserve you unless it's some kind of hidden message
To show me life is precious
Then I guess it's true
But to tell truth, I really never knew
Til I met you. See I was lost and confused
Twisted and used up
Knew a better life existed but thought that I missed it

My lifestyle's wild I was living like a wild child
Trapped on a short leash paroled the police files
So yo, what's happening now?
I see the sun breaking down into dark clouds
And a vision of you standing out in a crowd

Come come my lady
You're my butterfly
Sugar baby
Come my lady you're my pretty baby
I'll make your legs shake
You make me go crazy
Come come my lady
You're my butterfly, sugar baby
Come my lady you're my pretty baby
I'll make your legs shake
You make me go crazy

Hey sugar momma, come and dance with me
The smartest thing you ever did was take a chance with me
Whatever tickles your fancy
Girl it's you like Sid and Nancy
So sexy, almost evil talkin' about butterflies in my head
I used to think happy endings were only in the books I read but
You made me feel alive when I was almost dead

You filled that empty space with the love I used to chase
And as far as I can see it don't get better than this
So butterfly, here is a song and it's sealed with a kiss
And a thank you miss

Come and dance with me
Come and dance with me
Come and dance with me
So come and dance with me

Come come my lady
You're my butterfly, sugar baby
Come my lady you're my pretty baby
I'll make your legs shake
You make me go crazy
Come come my lady
You're my butterfly, sugar baby
Come my lady you're my pretty baby
I'll make your legs shake
You make me go crazy
Come come my lady
You're my butterfly, sugar baby
Come my lady you're my pretty baby
I'll make your legs shake
You make me go crazy
Come come my lady
You're my butterfly, sugar baby
Come my lady you're my pretty baby
I'll make your legs shake
You make me go crazy

Come and dance with me

There is a regional jam band that used to come through my college town all the time named

(please sit if you aren't already)

I never saw them but I'm willing to bet they are tapping a similar vein of good-time mellow-groove rock and roll music.

Reminded how the recent oral history of "All Star" talked about the band listening to all the songs that were in the top 10 and trying to mash them together into a new song...and these songs are definitely the sauce that went into that one.

Hookahville

Hookahville is a semi-annual music festival featuring performances from many local and regional bands and usually hosted and headlined by əkoostik hookah. Formerly located at Legend Valley in Thornville, Ohio or at Frontier Ranch in Kirkersville, Ohio, it was moved to Zane Shawnee Caverns in Bellefontaine, Ohio in 2017 where Hookahville 50 was held in September 2018 and was ekoostik hookah's reunion show with EH2.0. Hookahville 51 was held at Brushy Fork Phamily Ranch in Newark, OH in May 2019. Hookahville 52 will be held at Clear Fork Adventure Resort in Butler, Ohio where EH2.0 will return for one more performance. Spring Hookahville is held the weekend before Memorial Day weekend; the end of summer version is held during Labor Day weekend.
