Blaine Long: Honey In My Coffee
There is, however, a song about a dog on Blaine Long's record, but we'll get to that later. Allow Blaine's bio, compliments of blainelong.com, to help set the mood for the album:
Best Song: Album opener "Big Big Love" is a strong offering, but it's the next track "Put It All On Me" which really showcases just what kind of musician Blaine Long is. The song has Long's warbly, John Popper-esque vocals, complete with a light, easy acoustic chord progression that sets the country mood. It's a positive, upbeat song about how Long wants it all on him, if you will, and how he's going to try to save you while being more than a neighbor. It's a painfully simple song, but the execution is very slick.
