Gary Dranow is the lead singer of The Manic Emotions, a Blues Rock N Roll band that has toured extensively across Southern California. Currently, they are between releasing several singles and Gary Dranow has a few of his own singles scheduled to go out as well. He has some peppy tempo’d deep numbers like “Fool Out of Me” which he released late last year. These tracks have a techno touch to it with the way the guitar and drums are rendered, It tingles into your ears smoothly.
What gives character to “Something about you” is how rooted it is in emotion. Beginning with an exquisitely smooth guitar riff, it does a good job at catching your attention. Then his voice and words do the rest of the job of holding your attention. The bluesy texture of the song puts you in a trance like state that allows it flood your senses. The track is a confession of love bringing out feelings of love at all stages. At the honeymoon phase you appreciate someone and in the later stages, it’s the qualities that make you stay with that person. “you take a cold world and you make it warm. That’s why I’m right beside you” are the lyrics of the song. Sigh. Who doesn’t want to be immortalized in poetry? This song is a collaboration between Gary Dranow and Jerry Manfredi.
A movie that has this sort of pure love is The Blind side by John Lee Hancock. The film does a good job at showcasing the importance of the love we choose. Watching the film had me yearning for that sort of Southern love that pushes you to do your best. As the credit roles out, you can hear “Something About You” play.
Gary Dranow has interesting songwriting patterns that has earned him his listener across the US. For updates about future performances and releases follow them on their socials and catch the Rock N Roll Blues bug!
