I Try is a perfect song. Macy Gray has an incredible voice, a great combination of a unique sound and an effortless cool. The lyrics are top notch. The verses and choruses are simple but meaningful, understandable and poetic.
‘I may appear to be free
But I’m just a prisoner of your love
And I may seem all right and smile when you leave
But my smiles are just a front
Just a front, hey’
Top tier song. Top tier work of art. Deserves to be considered a classic.
