Welcome to This Day in Barrington History
Good morning and welcome to March 11th and Day 70 of 365 in Barrington, Illinois! You’ll find our stories of the day – past, present & future (events) – right here on today’s DailyPage. Because every day has its own rhythm, we’re sharing a song of the day here at 365Barrington.com.
On this day, March 11th in 2012, the American folk rock band, The Lumineers released the music video for their breakthrough hit song, “Ho Hey“. The song was released on June 4, 2012, as the lead single from their debut self-titled studio album.
The song was originally created during band members, Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites’ time in New York in response to disinterested concert-goers. “That song was an effort to get under people’s skin at shows in Brooklyn, where everyone is pretty indifferent,” Schultz told American Songwriter. “And I figured if we could punctuate it with shouts we might get someone’s attention.”
