Shout-out to my friend Theron who introduced this song to me. He randomly found it on Pandora one day and shared it with me. I don’t know if he looked more into Benji Hughes or not, but I did and I’m certainly glad! According to his bio on his record company’s site, Benji “loves beer but he loves women even more. Underneath his thick mane of strawberry blond hair and beard is a versatile singer/songwriter, full of heart.” What a charmer.
This is from his first album “A Love Extreme,” a 2-disc giant released back in 2008 at age 33. I think the whole album has a great sound for being 5 years old, and back in February it was announced that he’ll be releasing more albums this year. Hooray! He’s got a unique, laid-back, almost psychedelic 60s sound, and I saw one person compare him to Beck. He “sings” with a low, drawling voice in this song which creates the wistful feeling of the song. If you ever find yourself wondering about past relationships, don’t worry–you’re not the only one.
Also, don’t forget about the ticket giveaway this month!
