The one difficult thing about having a number one hit is trying to follow it up with the same kind of success. I’m sure Love and Theft is more than happy with their success and now they are ready to release the next single from their latest album. They actually probably had a difficult choice because there is some good music on the record. The song they chose is good. Only time will tell if it reaches the top of the charts.
Runnin’ Out of Air – Love and Theft
If I was in charge of things for Love and Theft I’m not sure I would have chosen this song. I think I would have gone with Amen or Thinking of You (And Me). Those are my two personal favorites on the album, but I’ve been way wrong in the past. This new single could be a big hit just like the one the guys had out the last time.
The song is about a girl that the narrator is pretty fond of. Something seems to have happened and now she’s gone and he can’t figure out how he’s going to get through life without her. It’s almost like he can’t breathe without her there. The lyrics of the song are not new. The analogy has been used before, but the melody is different and I think it works. It’s a solid melody, but I’m not sure it’s strong enough to become a huge hit.
What do you think of the new song?
Is it going to be a big hit?
