Songs We Wish We'd Written II
Label: Sugar Hill Records
More than a decade after Pat Green and Cory Morrow released Songs We Wish We'd Written, the singer/piano player returns with volume two. Green, a well respected Texas-bred singer with many hits to his credit, puts his unique stamp on a variety of songs. Tom Petty's "Even the Losers" gets transformed into a joyous anthem; Green's inflections and his tinkling piano give this FM classic an unexpected Springsteen-esque flair. Other highlights include Lyle Lovett's "If I Had a Boat," Walt Wilkins' "If It Weren't for You" and Aaron Lee Tasjan's "Streets of Galilee."
