Retro Single Review: George Strait, “Let’s Fall to Pieces Together”

1984 | Peak: #1

One of those great country titles that says it all upfront.

Unfortunately, it’s also one of those country titles that carries an entire song. The melody here lands just shy of memorable, and ditto to the story, which never takes its characters deeper than their first encounter at the jukebox. (Instead it does that annoying second-verse thing where it just rephrases the chorus and spells out a few obvious inferences the listener has already made.)

It’s the kind of song destined to be played at such jukeboxes, though, and the title pops out enough to ensure you’ll pick it. You just might not remember doing so later.

Written by Dickey Lee, Tommy Rocco, and Johnny Russell

Grade: B
