Welcome to Singled Out! where we ask artists to tell us the inside story of their latest single. Today Devin Moore from Rabbit! tells us about "Fall Into Love" from their brand new album "Connect The Dots". We now turn it over to Devin for the story:
I'm not ashamed to admit that as an adolescent I was a big fan of Phil Collins' second solo effort Hello, I Must Be Going. The first single "You Can't Hurry Love" was my toe-tapping, hip shaking favorite. It wasn't until later that I found out his was not the original nor definitive version, and lost a good deal of lunch money and pre-pubescent pride betting against the mighty Supremes. I apologize to music fans everywhere for my naivety, but I was foolish and impatient and usually skipped the liner notes.
Naturally both the embarrassing incident and the song stuck with me over the years and I can unequivocally cite lyrical inspiration for "Fall Into Love," from The Supremes "You Can't Hurry Love." Having a knack for being single for long periods of time certainly helped in the writing of this tune as well. The hopeless romantic part of me is continually and desperately looking around for love, while the "Little Fonzi" part says be cool, "Sit back and just relax," be like "a tenor sax, playing the smoothest jazz." You got to "fall into love," like a happy accident.
In other words, "You can't hurry love, you'll just have to wait."
Big thanks to D. Ross, by way of P. Collins for lighting the spark that propelled this song into existence.
