Justin Moore, ”Til My Last Day’ – Song Review
Justin Moore is smart enough to listen to his wife every once in awhile. The singer tells Taste of Country that Kate picked out his only two No. 1 hits, as well as his latest single ”Til My Last Day,’ which is perhaps the most honest and fulfilling song on his ‘Outlaws Like Me’ album.
It’s a song Moore wears everyday, literally. “I’d lost a little bit of weight and my wedding ring was getting a little bit too big and we couldn’t get it re-sized,” he said last summer. “So she bought me a new wedding ring a few months back and put inside it ‘I can love you the best,’ which is a line in the song.”
“‘Til my last day / ‘Til my last breath / Of everyone that can / I can love you the best / ‘Til my last day / I’ll be lovin’ you,” Moore sings during the chorus.
It’s clear that the traditional singer has only one person in mind when he sings the song, but the lyrics and easy rhythm allow listeners to fill in the blanks with their own true love. The crying electric guitars between the verses add pathos to a story that hooks you from the very first moments.
“People say I’m just a rough boy / I ain’t no good falling girl / It’s a dead end street trying to love me / Yeah I’ll wreck your world,” Moore sings to open the song.”All the way up, til they lay me down / Six feet under, the cold hard ground / ‘Til my last day, I’ll be lovin’ you.”
”Til My Last Day’ has the potential to be bigger than ‘If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,’ a song that still sounds good on the radio almost a year after its release. Songwriters Jeremy Stover and Brian Dean Maher help Moore find the elusive combination of artistic merit, honest and mass appeal.
