George Strait debuts on WSVNRadio this week, with his 1994 release, Lead On. It features only one #1 song
that hit #1 on the Country chart -- "You Can't Make A Heart Love Somebody." The CD contains lyrics to each song,
and as enjoyable as this album is, it's great to follow the lyrics, and you listen to the common day stories of Country
The #1 hit here seems to be sad, with the lyrics At a table for two / With candle light and wine / That diamond's
burning' holes in his pockets / Thinkin' now's the perfect time / When he popped the question he could see / The teardrops
in her eyes / She said she knew this was comin' and I'm sorry / But I hope you realize... Can we see what direction
this is going? Oh, this is Country lyrics...
On the brighter side, there are songs of hope and promise here: Positive lyrics tells the story of a lady named
"Adalida," "Nobody Has To Get Hurt" looks at a a fresh start, trying to fix the situation at hand.
"Down Louisiana Way" looks at an old friend, an old hangout, and how important it is, and how much its missed.
The title track looks at hope and a possible good-to-great relationship. "The Big One" tells of falling in love,
and how it just could be "the big one" or "the right one."
But then we return to some false hope: Is "I Met A Friend Of Yours Today" a song about cheating? With the
story of how you go to a bar for a drink, and you overhear someone mentioning your partner's name. You introduce yourself,
and see the look of shame and embarrassment from the other person. "What Am I Waiting For" is definitely of lost
hope, with lyrics as She might never show, My legs won't let me go, She'll never get here.
"I'll Always Be Loving You" tells the story of how you can strike me down, call me all the names you can think
of, etc, but in the end I'll Always Be Loving You." And lastly, with lyrics in "No One But You":
"My heart won't let me love no one but you / My mind keeps tellin' me that just won't do / My arms keep reaching out
for someone new / But my heart won't let me love No One But You.
Songs of hope and promise and those of lost causes are here on George Strait's Lead On. (Typical Country)
It's a good album for Country fans. With the start of the spring season, it's a good album to listen to, on a warm spring
day. It's Country, it's enjoyable, it's George Strait.
