I stumbled across this one on GACTV so a hat tip to them for introducing me to Jay Sparrow and his latest single and video. I like to stumble out to the edge of country music once in a while. There are so many great independent artists that you’ll discover a lot of good music when you go beyond the mainstream radio stations.
Let’s look at Jay’s new song.
All The Boys Want You – Jay Sparrow
The song is about a guy that really has this deep love and infatuation with a girl. It’s like he knows how lucky he is that she chose to be with him. He knows all the other guys are out there looking at her and wanting to be with her. But he’s the one she chose and he feels fortunate.
The sound of this song is what stands out to me, though. It has this sound almost like early and mid ’90s rock. There are elements of the Counting Crows in this song and I think that is really cool. That was one of the most popular bands at the time so taking influence from that sound, even indirectly, is a good thing.
There is definitely also a hippie vibe going on here. It’s that free spirit and free approach to life that can make you want to be part of it. We all can’t live the hippie life, but we can do it for a few minutes when we listen to music like this.
I like this song. What do you think?
