I’m Amanda. I’ve loved country music for as long as I can remember. Here you’ll find a collection of my thoughts on the country music of yesterday and today, and a general assortment of stuff that I think is cool or weird in relation to country.
Skeeter Davis - I Can't Help it if I'm Still in Love with You
from Written by the Stars
Totally obsessed with this album and Skeeter Davis and the producing genius of Chet Atkins. It doesn’t always sound much like country, but man, it sounds good. Who’da thought this song could sound like this?
Completely obsessed with this song. I’ve listened to it at least twenty times in the last day. Talk about a sad song. But what a beautiful song. I’d love to go back in time and see Charlie do this one live with a choir. It’s funny, I’m, like, one the happiest/most well-adjusted people I know, yet there’s nothing I love more than songs like this; songs that come from the sincerest, and sometimes, sadly, lowest places. Charlie wrote this one himself, and he just continues to keep me in awe.
P.s.: Sorry I couldn’t find a better version of this version.
