Rich Chambers released his new single I’m a Fool for Lovin You and it transports you right to the centre of a rock n roll dance club. A place where love was the ultimate pursuit and heartbreak was an ever-present danger. The song’s country twang mixed with Chamber’s earnest vocals makes for a beast of a number.
The guitar and drum combo kick open the door for the song in a dramatic fashion creating a flourish of an entrance for the song. The old-school quality of the song will have you reaching out for your shades, letting go of your partner’s hands and hitting the dancefloor for a solo. The song feels like a cathartic track that is fueled by Chambers’ vocals and the expert bass section. There comes a period after the breakup, after the mourning, crying and pining where you realise that you were so blinded by love. You realise that they might just be a shitty person. The song embodies that very emotion, but imagine screaming this at your shitty exes’ face.
The song very quickly and evidently gives you Grease energy. It’s the scream-singing and the undeniably dance-worthy beats. I could imagine a bunch of boys/ girls in their friend’s garage singing this with each other. What a wonderful act of solidarity that would be.
The song is clearly universal in nature because everyone has that shitty ex that deserves an earful. I’m a Fool for Lovin You is built around this timeless theme which makes this rock and roll ballad evergreen. Hope Rich Chambers asked you to give in to that intrusive thought, to unblock your ex and send this song.
