Matthew Perryman Jones: Can’t Get It Right

Somehow, this song from Matthew Perryman Jones appeared in my Spotify feed… and I’ve gotten hooked.

The refrain is fine, but I think it’s the choruses that are what pull me in. This also strikes me as a perfect song for a baritone, which may be also why I’ve been humming it an awful lot.

My favorite lines of the song:

Counting up the lines on the highway
Like I’m counting my regrets
I’m wrestling the angels
And the devils in my head
I left you without warning, no note beside the bed
I pray you can forgive me, I hope you can forget

Oh wow – I’m just now realizing that this song is pretty old, from his album Cold Answer (circa 2015). I guess… better late than never.
