Each time I do a cover song, they usually get positive feedback. I get feedback with people saying stuff to me like that was a ballsy song to do. Why? Is it because they think it’s hard for them to see a guy singing a love song? That’s probably a huge part of it. Each time I do a love song that is a cover song, it gets a lot of feedback from women. Why? I think it’s because they like guys that sing those type of songs and it makes me wanna do it more. First it happened with the Whitney Houston song and now that Berlin song from the Top Gun soundtrack. It’s probably because the ladies like my confidence of doing these kind of songs in which men don’t perform love songs too much.
I’ll admit it that doing love songs can get you more female fans and hopefully get more women interested in me. which is part of the reason why I’m doing it, I won’t lie about that. 😉
The thing is, I don’t want to do too many love songs ’cause I don’t want to become the next Barry Manilow, ya know? I just do the love songs that I like.
What are some other ballsy cover songs I could do? The Commodores “Easy”? Lana Del Rey “Blue Jeans”? Righteous Brothers “Unchained Melody”? Peter Gabriel, “In Your Eyes”? Lorde “Royals”? Harry Chapin, “Cats In the Cradle”?
They don’t have to be love songs. I’ll just do cover songs that I enjoy and songs that inspired me over the years.
