My friend Corey Koehler has a new song out on his website (PlanetCorey.com).
If this is the first time you’ve heard of Corey be sure to check out his site. He’s currently releasing a new song each month. It’s a pretty cool deal. I think this last one is his best yet. He was able to get a full backing band on this one and it sounds great. You’ll be singing along with the chorus.
Check it out…
I Think About You – Corey Koehler
What stands out immediately about Corey’s new song – I Think About You – is the melody. This song more than any of Corey’s others has some great catchiness to it. I was driving home thinking today about all the great songs in history. All the songs in all the genres. The greatest songs always have a catchy melody that people can get stuck in their head.
I Think About You has that quality. I’ve been playing it over and over. The chorus is catchy. It’s a classic hook for a great pop-rock song.
These days pop, rock and country are pretty blended together. There are differences, but really good country has elements of pop and rock music. I think it’s the melodies that really make them similar in certain ways.
Fans of Corey’s are loving the song each month campaign, but it seems to really be working out well for Corey as well. He’s coming out with better music each month and I really think this track is great.
Remember, this comes one day after I gave a somewhat non-approval to the latest Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw song. Corey’s, in my mind, has a lyric that is not so much cliche as that song.
I also think Corey is showing obvious influence from the mid-’90s pop-rock world. I immediately sensed some Blues Traveler and Hootie & The Blowfish in this song. It’s pretty cool and I’m a fan.
