Earworm: I-76

I used to love G. Love and Special Sauce. In the 1990s, they were a force to be reckoned with, always being played on my favorite radio stations. Now he appeals to the Jack Johnson crowd, but back then the music was fresh. I remember seeing them live at Cedarfest in Minneapolis with Spearhead and Soul Coughing. I'm not particularly into any of those bands (or their offshoots) now, but back then it made up a pretty big chunk of my music collection.

While the first G. Love album is still a classic, I can really only think of one song that came later. That's "I-76." I may not like his stuff any more, but  this one still holds up as a welcome reminder of the music of my past.
