more In all honesty, I must preface this review with the fact that my song "Missin Me" was only able to reach No.2 on the N1M Global Country Pop charts while this song sat in the No.1 spot. So, I tip my hat to Dana & Mike for creating such a wonderful, feel good, soul inspiring, Happy, happy...joy, joy song. It just has that energy! It really moves you...it moved me from the first time I heard it. It gives you the tingly feeling. You know, the good kind ;) Okay, now for that review.
Dana Jordan has a rich, powerful, down home kinda voice that carries, and cuts through to the heart. As a singer she's got great control, intonation, and range in addition to a wonderful delivery style. Mike Ingram has a strong Travis Tritt'ish tone that blends perfectly with Dana's vocal style. Tonally they compliment each other almost perfectly. From the opening line of this song the ringing guitar line and the simple trap kit keep the melodic and rhythemic backdrop solid for the duration of this magical musical journey. Lyrically, this is totally a love song. A true love song for the lovers of this world and for those who still believe in love. So much positive energy radiates from the interplay between these two throughout this wonderfully inspirational piece that it's almost impossible to not get caught up in the moment and think about that special someone. I tried, but just couldn't do it. Besides, who would want to do that anyway? There is a tender interlude in the break where a very heartfelt and tasteful lead guitar makes a strong and profound statement before it all comes back around for the ending grand finale. Finally, the call&response ending lets us down easy as it all slowly fades away, but leaves one with a feeling of pure joy. It's easy to see why this song is still the Global Number One Country Pop Song on N1M.
