John-Hiatt-Same-Old-Man-434960.jpgI know nothing about John Hiatt except that he’s written for artists including Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton, Roseanne Cash and so, as you’d probably imagine, he has a kind of country/bluesy sound.

What Love Can Do has a swingy melody that even the most dance-challenged will probably be able to shuffle around to, but it’s the lyrics that really stand out:

You dream a dream then the dream comes true
Can you imagine what love can do?
You’re alone in the coffee shop and then she’s by your side
Love picks up the tab and you’re both having pie

Find it on his album, Same Old Man.

Originality: 10

Tears-from-your-Mum Factor: 8

Inappropriate song of the week: Hit the Road, Jack
