Toby Keith shows his sensitive side.
The Road to No. 1
After “Does That Blue Moon Ever Shine On You” went to No. 1, “A Woman’s Touch” went top ten. The third and final single from Blue Moon returned Keith to the top.
The No. 1
Toby Keith has spoken often about how Mercury Records straitjacketed him into being a sensitive ballad singer, and he couldn’t let his personality fully shine through until he signed with DreamWorks.
His later work definitely showed more of his humor and attitude, but he was a damn good sensitive ballad singer on his first major label run.
“We Too” is one of the best of his hit ballads, a tender number that lists all of the different ways he shows his partner that he loves her, even though he can’t say the words “I love you” out loud.
It speaks to a fairly common situation when two partners come together and were raised in households that expressed love differently. “Me Too” reminds us that the way we express love might be different, but the feelings inside are still similar.
The Road From No. 1
Toby Keith’s last No. 1 single of the nineties is up next.
“Me Too” gets an A.
