One great thing about David recording so many songs in his 23ish short years is that I sometimes forget about some of them. So when I “find” them again, it’s almost like getting a new song. Almost. But hey, I’ll take any crumb I can get at this point. Like this one for example:
I TOTALLY missed it when it came out. Sure, I bought the Japanese album, but I missed actually listening to it, I guess. Which is crazy because it ROCKS!
Can’t you just picture David singing this live?
This story can’t be fic-tion-al
This chapter’s only got two pages left
And I’ll re-write it all *slow-mo points to victim in crowd*
*crowd goes wild*
And when I scrolled through my “Top 25 played” playlist recently, I was surprised to see this on it:
It wasn’t a top fave when I first listened to Forevermore but it’s the only song on there that made my Top 25 list, so I must’ve replayed it a lot, lol. It obviously really grew on me. I love the soulful groove of it, and his VOICE, wow… I think it’s different than on any other song. Rich like NY-style cheesecake. This might be my favourite part of the whole album:
I can’t stop, don’t know how to stahhhhpp thinking of youuu
I’ll do anything, do anything to be ne-e-E-e-E-ar you-U-u-U-u-U-u-U-u-U
And last but not least, I’ve come to LOVE this song.
I think it totally could have been a radio hit. It has over 457,000 views and the comments on it are all recent ones. I know, I know. The “persona” in the song isn’t really David… but it’s TOTALLY Josh Bradley!!!
He can be as modest and unassuming all he wants in real life, but if he wants to morph into a suave, serial-dater, out-with-one-girl-thinking-of-another when he sings, I say, you go, David!
Actually I don’t care about persona… I just care about David singing good songs that show off his talent.
What do you guys think? Any “forgotten” songs you’re rediscovering??
p.s. Also totally forgot how much I love this live version … “Mr. Jay Durias, here” … wish this was the version on the CD tbh.
