Rob Banks’ Top 25 Darius Rucker Songs: #15 — ‘I Hope That I Don’t Fall In Love With You’
#15: “I Hope That I Don’t Fall In Love With You”
OK, this might be the most arguable song to make the list, but this song hits home for me. And it’s only arguable because it’s a cover song. But, then again, so is “Wagon Wheel.”
“I Hope That I Don’t Fall In Love With You” is a Tom Waits song from the ’70s that Hootie + the Blowfish covered years back. In fact, in their beginning stages, and maybe even before Hootie was formed, they covered this song when original members Darius and Mark Bryan were jamming together playing shows.
I fell in love with this song a long, long time ago (ironically), so now it lands at #15 on the list.
