The first few bars of guitar… and then the drums kick in. Such a catchy tune!
This song just gets better when performed live!
Weird as it may seem, I’m a fan of music I can not only listen to but also physically own. There are variations to how I choose to own music, with my favourite of favourites often being artists I have music on multiple media. Wide Mouth Mason is one such artist. I love their entire catalogue as a longtime fan of their work, but this song, this song just seems to bring me the sun sonically on a rather dreary cold winter day. The music video’s vibe of laid back grooves match the repeating guitar chords that ties this song to my musical heart.
There are definitely some benefits to discovering a band later than the usual, the most being that one can binge-listen to the catalogue available at the time without the usual wait for a new album with new music. Since a later discovery means everything is new to you!
I’m not particularly ageist in my musical listenings, thankfully, so when I started really listening to the catchy tunes and covers of a UK band named The Vamps, their decision to do two McFly covers on The Vamps YouTube channel had me curious about the original being covered. Thus, I searched for and found the music of McFly.
With some chagrin, I realised that I had inadvertently been introduced to a bit of the McFly music via the viral videos of McFly’s Tom Fletcher. I’d no idea that Tom’s wedding speech video was based on McFly melodies and the more I listened, the more McFly music that became part of my collection.
Without The Vamps, I might not have known of McFly. And now I join others in waiting for hopefully more McFly music.
