daffodilZephyr : emma stone brought me here... but the hook brings me back ;)

Leigh Leigh : Old age brought me here lol still love this song

Sadie Brown : The 90s brought me here ; 90s child for life ❤️

Alex Daluge : Blues Traveler brought me here, as it should have for everybody else.

Noland Smith III : The moral of the song, you are all sheep.

Evan Rackle : wow you guys are all geniuses for understanding the meaning of this song that's literally stated in the lyrics. good job.

Mike Rabbi : Thanks for captioning the harmonica solo.

Luis Franco : The irony is lost on some, the song is brilliant.

Payton Henning : Am I the only one that continues to repeat the song till they can sing it in tune with the song. :)

Jon E : I don't know why but at 1:27 I hear, "All Mexicans will liiiiiieeee."

MisfitPunish3r : This song is fucking genius when you really think about it.

edwarddelbar : Pachelbel's Cannon in D. Exact chord progression. Which is why it's even more of a huge middle finger to the music industry.

Guy Fawkes : That is a work of goddamned genius.

Donald Smith : Never knew the words to this song. Now I feel bad, the hook really did bring me back, and the words really didn't matter...

Zach Naegele : My favorite thing about this song is that he pretty much tells you straight up that he's talking about nonsense and it's just that catchy part of the song that will keep you listening. He's basically trolling us all and we love him for it.

Bobby hill : I don't care how everyone got here, i'm just glad we're here!

Mary McDonough : This song is 4 levels deep...1. Peter Pan guys... no matter how much he loved her (Wendy)... Capt. Hook brought him back and he didnt want to grow up but stayed with the lost boys...2. The formula of the hit song... 3. The fact that the hook brings you back in all marketing and cases 3. that the song was telling you about the industry...4. Emma Stone (who the hell is that? LOL) geeze

Distraught NeckBeards : I came here after watching the lip sync battle between Emma Stone and Jimmy Fallon. I liked how it sounded =)

Jason Lee : Wow!  I just read the lyrics and realized that Blues Traveler was completely trolling the shit out of us back in the mid 90's, and I'm only figuring it out now about 20 years later.  It's almost the Seinfeld version of a song since they really aren't singing about anything, but he's fine "[s]o long as [he] sing[s] with inflection."  Touche.

Jimmy Saint : I just gotta say, that is one of the best harmonica soloes I've ever heard!

Heart Notes : oh my gosh I did not know the words to this song and the part with Peter Pan was fucking brilliant

carson dsilva : emma stone brought you here !

The ImpStrangler : Greatest Troll of all time

TheZomba1965 : "no matter how much Peter loved her..."

Calviny : I thank emma stone for reminding me of this great band.

We are getting aggravated : I brought myself here. On that you can rely.

Corey Kinoshita : Still reminds me of Emma Stone every single time.

ed young : Genius message by a genius band

MsDenouement : Am I the only one who thought the chorus was "The Heart Brings You Back"? UGH I feel friggin' stupid lol

okmwsx99 : The Hook brought me back

dacypher22 : Wow, heard this song thousands of times when I was younger and never picked-up how cynical it was haha. 

Nowhere Man : I'm here because this is a great song.

Florida Man : aaahhhh, I miss the 90's

Gina D. : Easily one of the best songs from the 90s.

Benjamin Riggs : So lyric. Much meta. Wow. Also note the chord progression: Pachelbel's Canon in D Great article about the song here: http://www.avclub.com/article/why-hook-by-blues-traveler-is-actually-a-pretty-ge-83392

belinskiMOM : Someone said this reminds them of Pachelbel's canon in D...that's because it IS the Canon in D.  D A B F# G D G A  !!  Listen while playing those 8 notes, kids.

Mattie Snead : I caught his harmonica at one of his shows. He's amazing live still to this day.

Bryce Yoder : This song is essentially the precursor to Bo Burnham's "Repeat Stuff"

realitybitesgirl : 90s had some great ass music.

Zach Martin : Jimmy Fallon brought me here

Daniel Graven : I think an English teacher can use this song as a grammar lesson

Ole Boy Blue : I went to a St. Louis Rams football game in the early 2000s, and to my surprise Blues Traveler was playing a free show in front of the stadium. I grew up listening to this song, and always thought it was catchy and good and whatnot without ever understanding what the song was saying. Also, John Popper is like the Jimi Hendrix or Eric Clapton of the harmonica.

Shane Delgado : If Emma Stone is the only reason you are here, what a sad life you must have lived before. This band has been amazing for 30 years.......makes me sad that the blues travelers didn't bring you here......

Van Khun : Emma stone brought me here 😊 I love this song

ThaBoss25 : I'm not going to lie but emma stone did bring me here but I wish I could have found out about this earlier cause this is good shit u know Grammy award winning shit to me.

Jae De Ocampo : Emma Stone brings me here :) <3

Iris Sanchez : When Emma Stone killed this song 😎😎

Kerr Henderson : Emma Stone brought me here, and I'm so happy she did!

Cody Rauscher : The hook brought me back. The harmonica solo kept me

kochos leavemealonegplus : the lyrics are quite shit but I guess that's the point since it's the hook that brings you back...and the fast bit is just great!
