If you’re still interested, then you’ll be happy to know that “Mary Was the Marrying Kind” is really good, a promising debut single from a guy who can string together clever lyrics without sacrificing the heartfelt sentiment.
I found all of the girls in this song interesting and believable. I’d buy a concept album that fleshed out the back story of each one. But Mary is the main focus, and he definitely let a good one go. Kudos for him allowing us to reach that conclusion on our own, just by his choice of details and the weathered regret in his voice.
Further proof that 2011 is exceeding expectations.
