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.
