The week is coming to an end and I can’t think of any other song that fits better as the soundtrack to the weekend than this one. This is “Million Miles Away” by The Gary Douglas Band.
In many ways this track feels more like an anthem then just another song, at least in my ears. There is without a doubt something special about this track and it resonates with me in a way I can’t remember any song have done in the last few years.
For me this is Bruce Springsteen meets The Killers meets Willy Nelson, In my opinion a killer combo.
Let’s just take a second here to recognize the vocal performance. Without a doubt one of the best storytellers I have heard in a long, long time. The raw emotions in his voice makes every word meaningful and most importantly, I believe every single word in the song.
The song itself is extremely well written. The structure is a bit off from the standard pop song and this is one of the things that makes this song stand out and one of the reasons why I love it.
The instrumentation on the track is undeniably done by a technical superior band and the result is a song that will stand the test of time and a song that will stay with yours truly for years to come.
So be smart, check it out now!
