Hi,

Is this a recent song (currently on the charts) or an 'oldie', or from a few years ago?

It has a male LEAD singer, but are there back up singers as well, or just the single male voice, throughout the song?

What kind of tempo is it? Fast, like you could dance to it, or slower, like a ballad?

You said 'rock/alternative', but does it sound a little 'country-ish', too?

Thanks,
Cher

Well

I'd be quite surprised if this song were an oldie as in older than two-three years at the most.

No backup singers. I recall a predominantly single male voice.
And it is NOT a FIERCELY MASCULINE voice.

Less Chad Kroeger More James Blunt kind of voice !

The meaning of the song is somewhere between Carolina Liar's "Show Me What I'm Looking For" and 3 doors down's "Let me be myself"

I remember the meaning of the lyric was on these lines:

[ I have been saying / doing things to please people / strangers / others for song long now / for a long time now.

I am gonna stop doing that . I am gonna say what I feel like / what I have to say. Even if it hurts others.

I will be myself. ]

The singer didnt sound like a Brad Paisley or a Kenny Chesney and there were none of the 'twangy' guitar sounds that one finds in country music.

It wasnt a ballad and did definitely have a decent tempo if not foot-taping one.


I have googled this endlessly with the following terms and came up with nothing:

"wanna be myself"
"say it all"
"listening to people"
"listening to others"
"others telling me"
"for so long now"

Hi again,

Well, I've done some extensive research and was not able to find the song you've described, so I will 'opt out' and leave your question open for other experts to try to answer.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help.

Sure.

But one question.

Is this question publicly viewable by other experts for them to venture to answer?
Expert:  Cher replied 4 years ago.
Hi again,

Yes, when I opted out, the question was automatically placed back on the 'open question list', enabling other experts to view it, and also, once the other experts see 'opted out' listed on the question, they will view it to see if they can answer it correctly.
