There is usually one song every few months that just takes over my music player. That song right now is 10,000 Towns by Eli Young Band. It’s the title track from their brand new album. I’d been hearing this one on AOL Radio and I kept really loving it every time it came. Finally I had to get it and now I’ve been putting it on repeat for hours and hours. I don’t know exactly what it is about the song, but it’s something cool. Check it out.
10,000 Towns – Eli Young Band
I think what I relate to in this song is the story and the lyrics. It’s about those small towns all over the world that kind of have their own special kinship. It’s where people hang out together at the baseball games or down at the local small town fair. There is just so many little things going on that are special and you don’t really understand unless you’re from a small town.
On top of that you have a really catchy melody with multiple hooks throughout the song. The guitar lick is really cool. That was a find for this band. I don’t know if they wrote the song, but they sure make it their own. The vocals are great including the background vocals and the song is something special.
I’m not sure if this one will get a release as a single, but if I was working at Republic I would put it out. I think people would love it.
Let me hear your thoughts.
