Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Cry For You - Leo Gold
Some of you may also remember the original, pop version of this song from September , but I honestly think I prefer this stripped down, house version by Leo Gold that came out just this past week.
Check out the neat lyric video below:
I really like how Gold's "Cry For You" has a much more raw, emotional feeling to it--when you listen to the lyrics, they really don't feel like a pop song...there's a lot of hurt here, and that really comes through in this melodic house track. I think the use of the warm melody (and hints of the old version) with the new drawn, back emotional core really work well together.
Plus, sometimes you just want an emotional track that doesn't feel the need to overexert itself (especially it's vocalist) to get its' point across.
This is...as far as I can tell, Gold's first track, and if this is what he was able to come up with I am more than excited to find out what's going to be next, as this "Cry For You" reworking really shows an acuity for song construction that could lead us to some really exciting places.
Here's the May 2017 DSD Playlist! We're only missing one track this month (and I'll hopefully be able to add it in later)! It's wonderful, as always, but that should be assumed when I'm making playlists of nothing but songs I enjoy...
Remember, if you want me to put these playlists on other services (like Spotify), let me know on Twitter (I've linked it below)
If you're looking for more great music, are late to the party, or just want more theguysfrom.com in your day, here are the playlists for:
There are other (earlier) playlists available for you if you check older "Tuesday Tunes" articles, or search on Apple Music itself.
See you again next week!
