I listened to Blues Traveler when they released their first Album, and
I actually "tried" to find something good in their music. I know there are
a group of people out there that became fans of BT, but I just never got
into their music or vocal style. .... I listened to both these songs and
was going to select the best of the two. After listening to them, I was
reminded why I never got into their music.

I picked Option #3

Hook was written as kind of a joke about the influence of Canon in D on popular music.

Great band! Lead singer John Popper is a virtuoso on the harmonica. Best songs I feel are Runaround and But Anyway...

John Popper is the man. I love me some Blues Travelers.

Remember the Blue Brothers 2000 cameo?

Hook is more of the Blues Traveler sound I remember. Fun and upbeat music for the most part.

Hook is such a fantastic song.

I totally get what Spurt was saying about them, I have to be in the right mood to listen to them.

Of that genre of music, and I guess they are not exactly the same band, Alabama Shakes blows them all away and then some.

Same here. That harmonica playing (or whatever it was) was over the top and grated my nerves. Not saying they're not talented musicians, just not my style of music.

I completely agree that the harmonica prevents me from liking this band.

Harmonicas generally suck

Never could get into their music. I won't go out of my way to change the radio if they are playing, but I would prefer it if the radio station didn't play them in the first place.

Poppers harmonica is like Neil Young's, but on steroids! I have never heard harp played in that fashion before or since. IMO it is unmatched.

None of the above. Maybe something off of Travelers and Thieves would have been better.

I liked their first 3 ablbums when I was in high school, they jumped the shark with Four.

One of their newer tunes that I did enjoy was "Carolina Blues"

But Anyway came on my G-Love Pandora station at work today. Great Song.
