With the current economy, it’s hard to pick out which CDs to buy on a limited budget. Most people can’t afford to buy as many as they could a couple years ago. So, which CDs are worth it in this current economy? Jimmy Wayne’s Sara Smile is.
Jimmy Wayne’s (“Do You Believe Me Now”) newest country album Sara Smile officially comes out on November 23rd, but Amazon has already shipped their first batch to anxious country music fans across the country.
The album includes his current hit, “Sara Smile.” It’s a remake of the Hall and Oates’ 1976 original. Hall and Oates do back-ups on Jimmy’s version. The song is catchy and cute and is constantly stuck in my head. I love the melody … I love Jimmy’s voice. I was considering changing my name to Sara after hearing this song. (I was originally supposed to be named Sara after the original version of this song, but my parents later changed my name to Madeleine.) There’s something special about this song that I can’t really place, but I just love it.
I like all of the songs on the album. I am also particularly fond of “All The Time In The World,” “There’s A Memory,” “Counting The Days,” “Just Look At You” and “Belongs To You.” I like so many of the new songs that it’s hard to pick a favorite!
“All The Time In The World” is a very nice song. It’s sets a nice tone for the rest of the album. Jimmy Wayne’s voice is kind of hypnotizing in a way. It really makes you want to stop what you are doing and listen to him. I really like the lyrics “I won’t forget you girl/even if I had all the time in the world.”
“There’s A Memory” is faster. I really like the melody of this one. It’s a nice one to wake up to, I think. I’ve always liked Jimmy Wayne’s faster tunes. In his last CD (also worth buying) Do You Believe Me Now, he had “Kerosene Kid” which was absolutely great.
