Bruce T Carroll “What’s The Rush” – I’m leaving… but not forever

Not every song has to be so darn serious – ‘What’s the Rush‘ certainly falls into the lighter category which is no bad thing.  Bruce T Carroll’s composition is a classic modern American folk song, loping along at an easy pace appreciating the good things in the world, and wishing there was just a bit less of the bad things that despoil nature’s plenty.  Its “stop and smell the roses” vibe extends to relationships with Carroll wondering what the great hurry is “I’ll be back baby, I don’t know when, honey what’s the rush.

What’s the Rush‘ is taken from Carroll’s new album ‘First Bird to Sing‘ which was recorded through the craziness of the 2020 election and the lockdowns of the pandemic.  Even in this light hearted ditty you may just detect the odd political barb.  Well, you know, sometimes songs have to be serious.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
