◀ BACK TO SONG
THE LIGHTS ALONG THE SHORE
Words and music by Eric Wrobbel
This song was first penned in 1969 when writer/artist Eric Wrobbel was just 15 years old. Not bad. Let’s see something you wrote when you were fifteen.
This smooth, country-flavored recording was made in 2017. The production is pure classic country, though Wrobbel is hardly a “country” artist in any traditional sense. Still, voice and production meld nicely in this fine piece of work culminating at the end in an a cappella phrase that is reminiscent of Wrobbel’s sometime work in Gospel music.
This is a most enjoyable song, employing not only an interesting, catchy melody, but also lyrics that express a kind of longing optimism that--combined with the concordant tune-- produce a decidedly positive feeling in the listener. And that is no small thing these days.
