Okay, so maybe I’m taking these some of these songs a bit too literally, but whatever. Way back when, Eddie Rabbitt was one of my favorites, and it was because of this song. It’s driving. The remake by somebody or other doesn’t have the driving force because the guy didn’t write the song (like Rabbitt did), and he obviously didn’t understand that it’s a driving song which means that your voice needs to be driving. Did I get enough “driving” in there?
Unfortunately we lost Eddie Rabbitt in 1998 to lung cancer. He was a songwriter before he began performing his own music. If you ever heard Elvis Presley sing “Kentucky Rain” then you’ve heard an Eddie Rabbitt song.
