Day 12: American Honey

It’s Saturday.  SATURDAY!!  A day when you can just lounge around and relax (and if you’re still studying, not care about homework until tomorrow…lol, well most people are like that).

Since this is a day when you are supposed to take a breather, I thought: Why not post a song that has that kind of ‘tude (attitude).  And where else can you find a song that’s relaxing, lounge-y (is that a word?) and pleasing to the ears than from country music?  And, since I am such a country music fan, I decided to go with Lady Antebellum’s American Honey from the Need You Now album.

I really love their songs.  All of it.  And the quality and tone of the voice, it’s perfect for country.  Well, maybe that is a biased opinion but country music is good, which is also why I am so happy that Scotty managed to get into the Top 10  (not counting the 3 wild cards) of American Idol *squeals like a fan-girl that she is*.

Anyways, I don’t know what else I’m supposed to say about this song other than it is so damn good!

A bit of a trivia about the frontline singer of Lady Antebellum.  Did you know that she once auditioned for American Idol but never even got pass the producers?  Yep.  Although, thinking about it, it was great that she didn’t make it through since if she did, who knows what would have become of Lady Antebellum.

Well, that’s it.  Below’s the lyrics to the song and I do apologize that all I have of the video is the live performance.  I couldn’t actually find a real Official music video to the song.  Still, wouldn’t you say that even their live performances are good?  Gotta love that voice and that guitar.  Now I’m off!  Dream on; Fly on!

She grew up on the side of the road
Where the church bells ring and strong love grows
She grew up good
She grew up slow
Like American honey

Steady as a preacher
Free as a weed
Couldn’t wait to get going
But wasn’t quite ready to leave
So innocent, pure and sweet
American honey

There’s a wild, wild whisper
Blowing in the wind
Calling out my name like a long lost friend
Oh I miss those days as the years go by
Oh nothing’s sweeter than summertime
And American honey

Get caught in the race
Of this crazy life
Trying to be everything can make you lose your mind
I just wanna go back in time
To American honey, yea

There’s a wild, wild whisper
Blowing in the wind
Calling out my name like a long lost friend
Oh I miss those days as the years go by
Oh nothing’s sweeter than summertime
And American honey

Gone for so long now
I gotta get back to her somehow
To American honey

Ooh There’s a wild, wild whisper
Blowing in the wind
Calling out my name like a long lost friend
Oh I miss those days as the years go by
Oh nothing’s sweeter than summertime
And American honey
And American honey
