Peter Unger- 'Love is What I’ll Do'
Review by Patrick Joseph & Staff
“Love is What I’ll Do” is a true folk song. Carried on the wings of acoustic guitar fingerpicking, electric guitar fills, and soulful vocal delivery, this song has a classic sound that pays homage to timeless songwriting. Unger’s delivery is ernest and direct, plainly stating his message with sweetness but without “overdressing” the music. Guitar parts are layered nicely together, giving the feeling of friends playing together in a living room.
Lyrically, “Love is What I’ll Do” is a message of dedication and commitment. These lyrics would be equally appropriate as wedding vows. “Its what we do that lights the way, What we feel and what we say.” The artist makes it clear that his conception of love is not a shallow one, and that he intends to walk the walk. Unger distills the essence of a committed relationship into one action phrase: “Love is what I’ll do”
“Love is What I’ll do” produces an overall welcoming and gracious quality. Listener’s will appreciate the dedication to detail of lyrical expressions as well as a courageously stripped down musical arrangement. The song is left to speak for itself, which it does eloquently. If you’re a fan of Gordon Lightfoot, Pete Seeger, or folk music in general, make sure to give “Love is What I’ll Do” a listen...you’ll be glad you did!
