On Christmas Day in 1954, country music got a wonderful gift.
But country fans wouldn’t realize it until a few decades later.
Steve Wariner was born that day in history and he would go on to have a wonderful career in country music. Steve brought a truly unique style to country music that was always pleasant to listen to and his hits spanned numerous decades including success well into the late ’90s and early ’00s.
But about 30 years ago around this time he had a song climbing the charts on its way to becoming #1. And it’s one of my all time favorites.
#TBT: Some Fools Never Learn – Steve Wariner
This was actually Steve’s second #1 hit, but it came four years after his first. That’s not entirely rare, but it can be a lifetime in the music industry.
The good news is that it would kick off a run of number ones for Steve in the late ’80s.
I don’t know why I like this song. I guess I’m a fool that has made the same mistakes over and over. There are just some things in life that some of us keep doing even though we know the result will probably be the same.
The fool in this song is thinking that love is going to be different this time. He’s apart from a girl he was with and he can’t give her up.
But the song does come around a bit at the end with hope that he will find a new love.
Great song. One of my favorites from a great era in country music.
