Got A Lotta Love - The Cactus Blossoms

from the album Easy Way (2019)

I dig songs that are simple and honest, particularly when they speak to universal desires of ordinary people.

Got A Lotta Love by The Cactus Blossoms is such a song.  It is straightforward and earnest, in an Everly Brothers kind of way, pleading for love to be reciprocated.

If you don't want me
You can't have me
I'm not the kind of guy who likes to hang around

If you can't trust me
Walk right past me
That doesn't mean that I wouldn't settle down

Cause I've got a lotta love
Got a lotta love
Got a lotta love to give

What makes this song stand apart from its contemporaries is it's craftsmanship.  The two-part harmonies blend together effortlessly.  The light twang of the guitar is lead guitar and the laid back strum of the acoustic are perfectly balanced.  The drum beat it is sparse, but tasty, and the bass subliminally buoys the entire composition.

This song is pretty, sweet, and pure.
