John Hiatt Lyrics


Selecting the material for a "Best Of" compilation of any
artist's work can be trying, to say the least. But for an
artist the stature of John Hiatt, whose numerous "best"
songs have been covered countless times and whose own
recordings have become classic, well, narrowing them down
to a single album would seem to be an impossible
undertaking.

But it would be hard to challenge the 17 song choices on
The Best Of John Hiatt. Such titles as "Cry Love," "Slow
Turning," "Drive South," "Angel Eyes" and "Thing Called
Love" - which are More...

Review about John Hiatt songs
Underrated yet excellent artist. | Reviewer: Dazman
    ------ About the song Cry Love performed by John Hiatt

I won't be able to write a review as well as Sandy's but all I can say is that Sydney Rock Radio Station 2MMM started playing this song and I rushed out and got the single. It's a gem, but after doing some research last night, it wasn`t the first single I heard from this underrated but excellent artist. 8 years earlier I heard "Slow Turning" but didn`t know it was from John. Like Sandy, I think a lot of people should go out and get his 'best of' shortly.

    ------ About the song Thirty Years Of Tears performed by John Hiatt

I first heard this song on Crossing Jordan's season 1 . I miss understood what John was saying so I could never find it. Then they played it again on the last season. Got the right name of song. I have been playing it over an over. This song just does something to your heart. You really need to read the words. Omg what a wonderful song.

    ------ About the song Before I Go performed by John Hiatt

Before I Go was playing on my car radio when I started it up this morning. It immediately touched my soul. I don't have that experience as often as I'd like. Thank you, John Hiatt, for sending that song out into the world!

    ------ About the song Drive South performed by John Hiatt

My wife and I lost our youngest son at the age of nineteen, sixteen months ago. We recently decided to relocate to the south from the north. We have always lived in the north, but heading south just sounded right. A very dear friend of ours just told me of this song, because it reminded her of us. Funny how life goes!

My late sons song | Reviewer: Susan
    ------ About the song Have A Little Faith In Me performed by John Hiatt

My son was murder by a random act of violance, walking home from a band gig. He is a musician. He had this song written out on a pad sitting on his bed. He had a bad break up with the girl he really loved. He also had lost his Dad, my husband about 2 years earlier from cancer. He was so lost without his Dad. His Dad and I encouraged him to be a musician, but his Dad made him practice and always told him he had faith in him to do it....not sure who he was thinking of when he wrote the lyric down, never will know...I just know I think of him now when ever I hear this song.

American incisiveness long lost | Reviewer: Randy Jakes
    ------ About the song Face The Nation performed by John Hiatt

This song is from Two-Bit Monsters, which, along with the previous Slug Line, constituted a couple of amazing new-wave pop albums by John Hiatt, who entered necrescence some time later. Hiatt was often compared with Elvis Costello, but at least for a brief window around 77-79 Hiatt had the more raw energy and intensity and rock n' roll chops. And in a bit of a reversal of usual circumstances, he, the American, was the more politically engaged than Costello.

The lyrics presented here are well done. Looking over American pop of the last 30 years, it's hard to think of anyone else who was, for a time, as incisive _and_ as articulate as Hiatt was for a time.

    ------ About the song Real Fine Love performed by John Hiatt

The deleted expletives thoughout this very beautiful song was a fine choice. I also must, w/ ur permission, write: barely talking, feet far from walking and if they could, where would they go? only 3 months old, I'm told, too soon to steal' daddy's soul.Day you came, ur mom & i, another couple lost in love. Who would've thought people could tell me but I wasn't sold until you filled me up with insatiable love,,
I believe in talking without words. He speaks four languages w/ his eyes.1st one tells me, dad it's quite alright to cry.2nd one let's me know he feels love 3rd one tells me, he's so fussy tonight.The 4th one lets me know he love's me too. Cry in the night, who's first to wake.I under the covers I make believe I still asleep.Mommy wakes fidgeting how she felti mean one look @ baby she melts
[Lead] if like much more p.s
If not still love ur music

Baby Blue | Reviewer: Pam
    ------ About the song My Baby Blue performed by John Hiatt

I love nearly every single song John Hiatt has ever recorded. I discovered him a long time ago and have every album he has made. He tells great stories.He also has written some sexy and some sad songs i.e. Feels Like Rain and Riding The Blue Train and Have A Little Faith in Me.

This reminds me of teen age years and thinking back on those days to someone you loved then and wondering where that person is now. I included it in a story I wrote because the couple both have blue eyes.

love it and look forward to more by him
