There are no acts like The Civil Wars in country music.
I’m not even sure if there is an act like them in all of music right now.
They just have this haunting sound that is unlike anything else. I really like it. I wasn’t for it right away, but this latest single is good.
The One That Got Away – The Civil Wars
This is not the song Jake Owen recorded about a year ago. This one is very different and that’s one of the qualities that makes it different.
The song is about love and passion, but it takes a very different slant on the one that got away. This song is about a person that wishes that the someone in their life had been the one that had gotten away.
Sometimes when we break up we feel all this pain and suffering. It can break people and make them go crazy.
That’s the emotion in this song. It’s about wishing that you would have never met the person. Wishing that they were the one that had gotten away so you could only remember the brief good moment you had together.
Life is cruel this way sometimes. If you’re an optimist you believe that you have to go through suffering to appreciate the good in life.
After listening to The One That Got Away you might just feel like you had never met that person that broke your heart.
What do you think of the new song?
