George Strait Songs Part 3
30. One Night At A Time
George can sing a song about anything, but his love songs about woman always pack some punch and emotion. One Night At A Time is about young love. When you first meet a person you’re still trying to figure things out. You’re not sure yet if they’re the one for you, but you can feel something special. You don’t want to rush to any conclusions so you decide to take things one night at a time while seeing where things go. It’s a great song from the king of country love songs.
29. I Just Want To Dance With You
The moment you see that special someone across the floor at the club or the bar you know you have to ask them to dance. You don’t want anything more than a simple dance, but it’s hard for a woman to know what your true intentions are for you and her. I Just Want To Dance With You was a big hit for George as he let all the women in the dancehalls know that he was just there to dance. I’m sure a few more women would want that dance if George was there offering .
28. If You Can Do Anything Else
The chorus on this song was really catchy. If You Can Do Anything Else is a song about a guy that’s giving his woman the option to leave him. He gives her many different options for all the things she can do. At the end he gives her the option to stay with him if she really can’t find anything else to do. He says he’ll be alright, but really it seems he wants her to stay. I personally loved the way this song sounds. It’s a great vocal by George and that’s why this track became a big hit.
27. Marina del Rey
I love this song. It’s one of the songs from George that can be overlooked by the average country music fan. The song is about a love affair on the beach. Two people get together and have an amazing time in paradise. They created many memories and then hit the road on their separate ways – back to their normal lives. All that was left was the memories of the short time spent together there in Marina del Rey. George played the narrator of the song perfectly and the song became a hit and a favorite among hardcore George Strait fans.
This song was a little different from George. It’s a bit on the darker side of things. The sound of the song isn’t upbeat or even the typical crying type sound of most country music. Run has its own feel and sound. The song is about a guy that desperately wants his love to run back to him. He misses her bad now that she’s out there away from him. He doesn’t want her to take her time getting back to him. He wants her to do whatever she has to in order to get back fast. Run was the title of the song. It’s a great song for its unique music and even better vocals.
25. Living and Living Well
I love this song. It’s upbeat and fun and the song has a great message. The lyrics are about a guy that realizes there is nothing like being with the girl of your dreams. You may think your life is good and well, but until you find that special someone you won’t know what the difference is between living and really living well. This song became a huge hit for George and listeners still love hearing this song on the radio. It’s a great song people loving singing along to. Great melody with a great message.
24. Cowboys Like Us
George loves the cowboy life. He spends his off time out on his ranch. He works the land and the livestock with his family and hired cowboys. For Cowboys Like Us George had himself a simple tune about the kind of hero all guys think they are – cowboys. Having fun, kicking back and riding with the wind are a few of the things modern cowboys do. And the lyrics actually lead on listeners to believe the song is about bikers. Steel horses and the wheels rolling are what the song is about. Modern day cowboys out taking off from time to time. It’s a great melody with a great lyric. It’s a great song for a Sunday ride.
23. She Let Herself Go
She Let Herself Go is a song about a girl that gets dumped by her guy. He was originally worried that she would be depressed – she’d let herself completely go into her depression without him. The opposite happens though as the woman hits the road for a few vacations and some time to herself. Sometimes it takes a breakup to make things better for those in relationships. Sometimes we’re better without someone. This was a seemingly depressing song title that turned out to be a great uplifting song. Another great one from George Strait.
22. The Seashores of Old Mexico
George Strait can sing and perform, but probably his best talent is finding great songs. Back for 2006 George found this gem of a Merle Haggard song. The Seashores of Old Mexico was recorded more than once by Hank Snow and Merle Haggard and even Willie Nelson. Snow’s version had some impact on the charts, but it was George that took the song into the top 20 on the charts. The song is about a young guy trying to get through life despite a few missteps. He eventually finds himself and love on the sandy shores of Mexico. A great story song written by a legend and brought to fame by another.
21. It Just Comes Natural
George kicked things up for an uptempo love song with It Just Comes Natural. The song is light, fun, and perfect for singing along with. The track became yet another big hit for George. Even when he’s covered seemingly every topic in every way he comes out with a simple love song. Perhaps singing about love and doing it in a fresh country way just comes natural for the king. The song is about love that comes natural for a guy and how he loves his woman. It’s just a great country song.
