This is my first introduction with Mike Ryan. I heard this song on the radio and it really stood out. I’m not sure what it was, but I’m going to give it another listen and try to figure it out. It’s a good country song and just a good song in general.
Dancing All Around It – Mike Ryan
Alright, from what I can tell this song is a sad song. You have a guy that’s kind of sitting at home wondering what happened with his recent relationship. Things are broken off, but he’s not sure if it’s really over. He calls the girl and gets the voicemail.
He then goes out to blow off some steam and have a few drinks and then he sees her out on the dance floor with another guy. Maybe they just met tonight and maybe she’s just blowing off some steam. But that’s just denial in his voice. She appears to be fully moved on.
This is a sad song and there have been a lot of country songs about this emotion, but this one does it a little different. And it’s catchy and it’s something a lot of people out there can relate to. When breakups happen it’s often skewed at least a little bit one way. One person is usually not quite ready for it to be over and it takes them longer than the other.
Great song here that I really like.
