DANCING GERRARD

Dancing Gerrard is an amazing song from talented singer/song writer Luke Jackson. The lyrics are so relevant – perfectly describing a night out on the town for many young people today. Luke cleverly fuses together quirky modern day lyrics, which on first listen have an upbeat feel and a sense of fun but listen closely and the lyrics also convey a sense of sadness and helplessness. Luke’s vocals are both sensitive and forceful at the same time allowing the listener to feel sorry for the subject of the song. Luke’s moving lyrics describe a person ‘Gerrard’ who wants to be the centre of attention and thinks he is well liked but in truth his actions just get him laughed at. At the end of the night he always goes home alone. A punchy interlude three-quarters of the way through lighten the mood of the song before it returns to a slower speed once again. Luke’s musical talents really shine through on this song.

MOMENTS GONE

Moments Gone is a slow drawn out song with a haunting feel. Luke’s vocals are gentle and the backing music is barely noticeable yet very much in evidence. A contradiction in terms but Luke’s vocals are so overwhelming they over shadow everything else. The lyrics are carefully constructed and of a very high standard. The song varies in pace throughout, starting off slow then picking up speed very gradually before slowing to almost a deathly stop at the end. As the song fades out, with a real sense of finality, listeners are left with a strange emptiness and a wanting for more. This is an infectious song that quickly gets under the listeners skin.
