I’ve heard that sound before.

REO Speedwagon? Who is it???

It’s driving me crazy,

It sounds to me more like the Tommy Shaw side of Styx. Light voice that hits the high notes. A lot of keyboard to satisfy Dennis DeYoung. Reo and STYX have been considered twins seperated at birth by some, but listen to “If I Could Just Get Through This Night” or “Crystal Ball” by STYX and you may hear that, too.

Okay, I had a listen and that’s not it.

I’m talking more the melody. Namely, “no one is ever going to love you more than I do…”

It’s REO Speedwagon.

It’s not REO Speedwagon. I was a big REO fan.That’s not their style.

Huh. Boston?

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Nope. I was a big Boston fan as well.

@Adirondackwannabe I have heard that sound before… Ugh.

Jude's avatar

I still love this song.

I know that I’m not losing my mind. It’s a mystery, kids.

@Adirondack, how old are you? I don’t think that we’re far off in age. I’m 38.

@Jude It’s familiar but I can’t place it.

Totally just guessing…. =/
Also, that Band of Horses song breaks my heart every time. :(

“Vocalist Bridwell has been likened to Jim James of My Morning Jacket,[2] early Neil Young, and Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips.[3]”

The chorus reminds me of oREO Speedwagon, Air Supply, a wee bit of Toto.
Maybe a smidgen of Supertramp.

I’m a little confused. Your OP links to a youtube video who tells who it is. Band of Horses
