It’s been a huge year for Eli Young Band.
The guys have been riding high on the success of Crazy Girl. The even crazier thing is their latest album is full of great songs. And now that the time has come for another single I don’t think the guy could do any better than Even If It Breaks Your Heart…
Even If It Breaks Your Heart – Eli Young Band
Man, I love this song.
It’s been on for the last hour straight. I’ve been making dinner and I keep letting this song play on repeat. I’m starting to realize how good the Eli Young Band is with melodies. They have a really cool sound and it makes you want to sing along all night long. Every big single the band has put out have been this kind of song – catchy and infectious.
Even If It Breaks Your Heart is that kind of song. When the chorus kicks in telling the story of a guy listening to music throughout his life you feel it. You are put right there with the music and the guy that’s living every moment through this music. The guitars kick in from the background and you feel like you’re riding through this rockstar life.
What the song seems to be about is the fact that we all need to have dreams. We all need to figure out if we can follow our dreams. We have to keep fighting even if our hearts are broken over and over. Even if it’s hard and it hurts we can’t let life get us down. We have to keep the dreams alive. For the guys in the Eli Young Band those dreams were of playing music and now the guys are living their dream.
For everyone else there are different dreams. We all have something we want to do in life. Maybe what we want is to find the love of our lives, settle down and raise a family. That’s probably the best dream anyone could have. We’re all different, but no matter what our dreams are we have to keep fighting to make them come true.
Life is too short to think about failure. Everybody is going to fail – at least the winners are anyway. I haven’t been around a very long time, but it seems like the most successful people in the world are the ones that wouldn’t take ‘no’ for an answer. They kept on fighting until they proved everyone wrong.
With Even If It Breaks Your Heart I think the Eli Young Band will continue their success on the charts. They are coming off the biggest single of their career and I think they’ll follow that up with another big single. The country audience has accepted the band and I think they’re due for a big run of hits. They’ve been around long enough now to understand what it takes and fans are in for some great music.
What do you think of the new song?
