Here’s another new country singer with some talent and an ear for a melody.
I always pay a little extra attention when the single from a new artist has a good melody. I feel you can really break through in the country world with something snappy and catchy. I think that’s just what newcomer Greg Bates has with Did It For The Girl.
Did It For The Girl – Greg Bates
How many of you guys out there have done something crazy for the attention of a girl?
If you didn’t raise your hand then you’re lying. We’ve all done it. In fact, we all do it all the time even if we’re with the love of our lives. We do crazy things and get caught up in the moment of it all. That’s what women have the power to do to us. We’re a little crazy and weird already, but they really push us over into the crazy zone.
As I mentioned before, Greg Bates really has something catchy with Did It For The Girl. If you listen to this song just once you will find yourself singing along with the main hook, the title of the song. It’s catchy, but it’s not cliche. You instantly recognize the meaning of the song and for the guys out there you can really connect and put yourself in the place of the narrator.
This is really a simple country love song. It’s about the early stages of falling in love and doing stupid things just to impress the girl. That’s how it works in real life and this is a great country song. I’ve always felt country represents the real life situations we all run into; good and bad. This happens to be one of the best moments in life.
We all fall in love and find someone to be with for the rest of our lives. It’s a great feeling and when there’s a song to fit the feeling it makes it that much better.
Great job on the song, Greg. I think it’ll be a winner on the charts.
