Unlike yesterday’s Shawn Colvin, I’m not surprised that Deep Blue Something was a one-hit wonder. But I’ve never gotten this tune out of my head. And it got me to watch the Audrey Hepburn classic, so there’s that.
Somewhere in the world, maybe at the bottom of a landfill, is a cassette tape. On that tape, my friend Ginger is preserved at fifteen, singing No Doubt’s Spiderweb with all the gusto of Gwen Stefani. She didn’t know we were recording her, and we tortured her with the recording for weeks.
I’d pay a pretty penny to hear that exclusive cover version again.
Have I mentioned how sexy I find Gary Allan? The scruff, the hat, and most of all, that gravelly country voice. Songs About Rain is a modern country song with an old time, classic feel. It paints such a picture to me–I can see Gary driving around in a beat-up pickup truck, all the lights red, all the stores closed, all his dreams dashed. And all the songs coming through his radio just rubbing it in.
