  1. I’ve also seen them perform these covers live:

    losing my religion – rem
    I should have told her – vinx
    mustang sally – wilson picket

  2. pretty comprehensive list!
    i’ve been trying to find these guys doing ‘mandy’ forever – i’ve heard it only once but its one of the best covers of that song i’ve heard. lemme know what album u found that on!! i need a copy!!

  3. Sadly, I don’t know where to find that either. I haven’t seen any official or unofficial recording that includes Mandy. If you ever run across anything, let me know where you found it.

  4. I just saw them last night great show! they closed out the night with a great cover of Oasis’ champagne supernova

  5. Hootie et al covered Get Down On It by Kool and the Gang on a New Years Eve Gala. I am very interesting in finding a copy of that. Do you know where I could find it?

  6. Does anybody know the song that Hootie and the Blowfish do that counts by 3 in the song? I saw them in concert recently and it is a great song. I’m thinking it might be a cover.

    1. that’s part of their cover of Love the One You’re With…it’s in the middle of the song along w/3rd Bass’ ‘The Cactus’. I’ve got it on a bootleg album.

  7. They’ve also done STP’s Interstate Love Song and Bowie’s Space Odyssey. I used to have these in my illegal downloading mp3 days.

      Thanks for the comment on an old post. Space Oddity – I’d like to hear that.

      I do miss going to Hootie concerts. I’m hoping to make it to one last show, should one happen. It’s probably too much to hope to see them tour again, so hopefully there will be another charity performance I can attend, whether they perform any covers or not.

If you have a comment or question, please post it here!
