Artist Spotlight: City and Colour

We’ve all heard Elton John’s ‘Your Song’ and the other 49 songs that are often featured by the likes of and Time Out as the Top 50 Love Songs of All Time, so here’s a song that is perennially overshadowed, but in our minds, a hundred times better:

‘The Girl’ by City and Colour


Lead Singer DALLAS GREEN: This song is about my wife… I was really wary about writing a love song, just because of how “emo” was being portrayed and people were afraid to say what they felt. Then I started thinking… f***! Al Green, when he wanted to tell a girl how he felt about her, he just said it. Or Sam Cooke or Otis Redding, or any of those guys. In their songs, they wrote… “I love you.” So, then I was like, “Well who cares? I’m just going to write this.”
