Song Stories: The Wanting Of You by Melissa Etheridge

Melissa_EthridgeBy Shelley Lee

“The Wanting of You,” is the second single from Melissa Etheridge’s latest album ‘Fearless Love’. This is a classic Etheridge rocker based on the story of a small-town, Midwestern girl who lives in fear of the life-changing choices she’s made.

This song has an almost ‘Anthem’ feel to it’s arrangement, with multi-layered guitars leading to the chorus. The lyrics are almost painfully honest, like the powerful self-confession “A phase you’ll just get over/That’s what her friends have always said,” “You dip your toes in water/ She’s in way over her head.”

This entire album is very personal and reminiscent of Ethridge’s hits of the mid ’90s.
