Songs I Love: Slow Me Down by Sara Evans

I find it interesting that this is the second Sara Evans song I have featured on this blog given that I don’t consider myself a huge Sara Evans fan. I generally like the songs she has that wind up as singles played on country radio, but they’ve never really inspired me enough to look into her full albums for some reason. There are a couple of things I really love about this song. First I love the plucky musical sounds that begin the song and then recur throughout it. I also really like the juxtaposition of the ideas of hurrying up to slow someone down. I like clever word play. Finally, the song is like 60% chorus, which makes it super easy to learn the lyrics and sing along to. As I have previously mentioned I don’t listen to music in ways that engender me to learning lyrics easily anymore, but singing along to songs is great fun so I like when I come across a song that I find myself knowing the lyrics to without realizing it.
