It's time for that featured track thing again. This week's offering from Hearsay Is 20/20 is the sixth song on the album, titled He Could. Give it a spin HERE!
Some of the melody was salvaged from a tune I wrote when I was 16, and at that time it bore a bit of a resemblance to The Beatles' I Don't Want To Spoil The Party, with a similar country/rockabilly feel. That was swapped out after I heard Green Day's Poprocks And Coke come up on one of my playlists while I was in the middle of doing something exciting like making a sandwich or washing dishes. It's a glamourous life, I tell ya.
The chorus uses a "coulda-shoulda-woulda" lyrical theme, and then each verse expands on that as the song progresses. Sometimes two people are the right combination, but at the wrong time.
