It starts out like any other cool breezy love song. Or maybe not! A sweet Travis Picking style guitar creeps in. Gradually the Travis Picking guitar starts being accompanied by pulsating bottoms. Then the finger-picking style gives way to warm conversation between bass and drums. Then you’ll notice an under rhythm that sits just in the right place under the other instruments and you’re transported to a pleasantly surprising place.
The song is categorized as “World” and for a good reason. Like most love songs it broadcasts to a very wide audience. The lyrics are a little daring but the words go down very nicely with a side of open-mindedness.
The song grabs you like a warm comfortable fairy tale and off you go on a pleasant journey. Soon you find that it’s a fairy tale of the adult variety. The kind that make you really want, no, need to know how it ends.
It is not surprising that the guitar solo is as interesting as the beginning of the song. It too demands a good listen. Back on the trail after a nice refreshing guitar solo reprieve, we move towards the end of the song anxiously anticipating the end of the story.
You wake up from this dreamy work of art with the sound of the Travis Picking guitar saying good bye until next time. Definitely an experience you want to repeat! And you do repeat the song each time going on a different journey. Or you can just enjoy the song for its rhythm and beat and forget the story fairy tale line. The song is called “A Lover’s Song”.
David’s Drift is on radio rotation with the track, “A Lover’s Song”.
