Robert Flynn-”Blue Morning” (Foreigner)
Review by Patrick Joseph & Staff
Robert Flynn's rendition of “Blue Morning” , written by Lou Gramm and Mick Jones of Foreigner, is an energetic and intoxicating take on a classic rock song. The dark complexity of Flynn's interpretation is crystallized by an engaging and dynamic lead vocal performance. The throwback feeling of the rhythm section is fantastically well-done, revealing talent from every angle on this track. High production values give this cover a unique sound and feel while leaving huge space for each instrument within the mix.
Lyrically, “Blue Morning” tells an intense story of a man at a breaking point. “I've always listened to your point of view, my ways I've tried to mend, And I've always been a patient man, but my patience has reached its end.” Flynn delivers these lyrics with confidence and conviction. “Blue morning, blue day, won't you see things my way? Blue morning, can't you see what your love has done to me?” The abstract, poetic nature of these lyrics are engaging and hypnotic in Flynn's vocal hands.
The execution of “Blue Morning” on this track is impressive. Drum and guitar patterns sit perfectly in the groove. Electric keyboard and organ swirl and stab through the track, creating rich layers. The vocal performance is epic. Listeners will love to hear Flynn sing with such intensity while remaining inviting. The band executes difficult passage with ease. “Blue Morning” is chalk full of life...a great recording.
