I am posting a song today that I really love. It is a new song and many of you may have already heard it play on the radio, as I know that it has been getting air time on stations since they released the single last month.
I think the music to the song is beautiful – smooth and understated – and truly captures the emotion they are reaching for, but the lyrics to this song are what really caught my attention. I am sure that all of us can point to some time in our life where this sentiment rang true. It honestly just makes me feel very emotional when I listen to it. It is one of those anthemic songs that I think most people will listen to and relate to … I can’t imagine the song won’t be a hit. I can just see a concert crowd singing along to this song.
O.A.R. (short for Of A Revolution) is planning to release a new album in May of this year – it will be their 8th studio album. They have had some major hit singles – think “Shattered (Turn the Car Around)” – over the years and are supposed to put on a fabulous live show. Speaking of live shows, they are planning to be on tour beginning in April. The band was formed in 1996 and, an interesting factoid that I learned about the group while reading about them is that all of the members attended The Ohio State University. They began as an independent college band and ended up being a successful headlining, chart topping group. Another great success story and another great new song for you to enjoy.
