Retro Single Review: George Strait, “You’re Something Special to Me”

1985 | Peak: #4

Deceptively simple.

“You’re Something Special to Me” is so laid back that it’s easy to miss the craftsmanship.  As Strait channels a young Merle Haggard, a slow western swing arrangement surrounds him with warmth.

When people say he’s country music’s Sinatra, this is what they’re talking about.

    It’s a perfect slow shuffle for dancing and one of the early romantic hits George is famous for…:)
