What I’m Listening to on 7/23/2019: Amanda Ann Platt & The Honeycutters-Diamond in the Rough/Can’t Always Get What You Want.

Silky, yet rough enough for the “Dustbowl Era” style of music I love so much.  Her original song written about wanting to make your loved ones proud sears deep into the innate realizations the soul already knows, yet it remains at an upbeat tempo to give you feelings of positive note after listening.  Instead of it sounding like a tune focused on the negatives of that realization – the loss of youth, taking responsibility, and doing things you might not want to do – It makes you determined to go out and be the best person you possibly can that day.  She leads this into an interesting take on the Rolling Stones classic “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”, which I had never heard before sung in this particular style of sound.  Overall, It’s a feel good tune to cheer up any’s dark moods or to give you an extra pep in your step come time to go to work.  It’s great, tell me what you think in the comments.
