There is something to be said for a simple country song.
Mark Cooke is a new artist – new to me at least – and his new single is catchy and fun. Check out Any Way The Wind Blows and see for yourself.
Any Way The Wind Blows – Mark Cooke
This brand of country music is something I enjoy. Any Way The Wind Blows is fun, light hearted, and simple. The lyrics tell the feelings of a guy that’s in love. He’s found his girl and he’s willing to go anywhere with her. They don’t have a plan and they know that even if they did things would always be changing. The narrator accepts this path and realizes he’s going to happy no matter where life takes them. As long as he’s with her he’s going to be happy. That’s all he needs.
The music of Any Way The Wind Blows is my favorite part of the song. It kind of rolls along at a fast, but not too fast pace. It keeps you interested the entire time and leaves you wanting more by the time the song is over. It’s a great song for riding in your car on the interstate with the windows rolled down. You’re sitting next to your baby with your right arm around her. She’s looking at you and smiling with her aviator sunglasses on and maybe even blowing you a few kisses.
That’s where this song takes my imagination.
I figure when a song has the power to paint a picture in your mind the artist must be doing something right. I’m hoping Mark Cooke finds himself a hit with Any Way The Wind Blows. The song isn’t one that will have a surprise or a shock value, but sometimes it just takes a solid, good country song to get your first hit. I think that’s what could happen in this case.
Best of luck to you Mark and you have at least one new fan that will be playing your new single over and over for at least a few days.
