OK, I am going to make a prediction. At some point in the next five years this track will crop up at a vital point in a Hollywood Romcom, go on to be a million seller and be murdered by X-Factor and Voice wannabes for many a year. However at the moment it is languishing on a puny 56k YouTube views, so we can enjoy it before it becomes the ‘Stop Crying Your Heart Out’ of the next decade.
A delightfully simple and straightforward song and a brilliantly controlled vocal that is the very opposite of the vocal gymnastics encouraged by talent shows. ‘I Still Want You’ by Richard Hawley narrowly fails to make my top ten.
