First Good Song.
Admittedly the first music I liked as a kid, that I discovered on my own, was really shitty - Vanilla Ice, some 1992-95 dance mixes made by Much Music, stuff like that - and I had all but discounted it all as terrible and never to be listened to again …
And then I remembered this song.
"What I like about you" by The Romantics is an amazingly perfect pop rock song complete with a simple chord riff, a bunch of “hey!”s, and a verse as catchy as the chorus.
And the whisper part - total gold.
We’re in the middle of recording a new song called "It’s Over" and I would love for it to feel like this song.
This song came out in 1979, the year I was born.
