Songs about second chances can be anything from Sade’s “Starting Over” to Josh Turner’s “Another Try.” Whether you’ve lost someone you love, or just want to win them back, you can use a song about second chances to help you get over the past and move on with your life.
Josh Turner’s ‘Another Try’
Josh Turner’s song “Another Try” is about giving a relationship a second chance and redeeming love that you once thought was lost. The lyrics are simple, but the tune captivates the listener’s attention. “Another Try” is one of Turner’s greatest singles.
The song is a country love song that Josh Turner recorded with Trisha Yearwood. It was released in 2007 as the second single from Turner’s Everything Is Fine album, and has been rated one of the best country heartbreak songs of the last 20 years. It reached the top 15 of the Billboard Country chart and garnered Trisha Yearwood’s harmonies on the chorus. The song’s success was immediately apparent and “Another Try” became Turner’s eighth chart single.
Josh Turner’s song “Another Try” was also featured on the album Person of Interest, which was released in June 2017. The song was written by Josh Turner and was performed by Chris Stapleton, and is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share-Alike 3.0. The video is also available on YouTube.
Selena Gomez’s “Back to You”
“Back to You” is a new song from Selena Gomez, which will be included on her new 13 Reasons Why soundtrack. The song is an edgy romantic comedy, and it features a hot blond guy with Justin Bieber’s hair. The video also features Gomez rocking a bob. It looks like the actress and singer had just cut her hair, and her makeup artist Hung Vanngo has posted a few pictures with bangs on Instagram. Last week, she also debuted a very cool undercut.
Selena Gomez’s new single “Back to You” is an acoustic-pop-meets-EDM crossover. The song is part of the soundtrack for Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why series, which Gomez executive produces. Its theme is heartfelt, and relates well to the show’s premise of a lost life.
The video for “Back to You” was inspired by a 1965 film by French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard. While the lyrics of the song may be based on her relationship with Justin Bieber, the video draws heavily on New Wave films, and Godard’s artistic touch.
The song “Back to You” was originally created for Selena’s soundtrack for “Thirteen Reasons Why.” The show is the second season of the series, and Gomez herself serves as an executive producer. The first season followed the structure of the popular book of the same name. It will be available on Netflix on May 18 for streaming.
Sade’s “Still In Love With You”
One of four previously unreleased Sade tracks on the new Best Of compilation, “Still in Love With You” reveals Sade’s intimate side. The song was recorded during a session with the Thin Lizzy band and features Sade’s distinctive voice. Its simple chorus consists of only the title and Sade’s signature voice carries the song through the entire refrain.
John Lennon’s “Starting Over”
The single “Starting Over” is an anthem of hope and change. This elegiac tune was written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono and first released in 1980. It was written and recorded by John Lennon, using a piano and a drum machine. Lennon and his band mates rehearsed the song in secret before recording it. On December 27, 1980, the song hit the Billboard Hot 100 and reached Number One. It held the number one position for five weeks and stayed on the chart for twenty-two weeks.
The opening line of “Our life together” does not have any deep meaning, but the tragic weight of the song becomes apparent when considering Lennon’s death. The opening line uses the word “together” twice in one line, but in a different context, it carries a great deal of meaning.
“Starting Over” by John Lennon was Lennon’s last US No.1 single, following 1974’s “Whatever Gets You Through the Night.” The single spent five weeks at the top of the chart, almost like a memorial for Lennon and his tragic death. The song’s infectious optimism helped it become one of the most memorable singles of Lennon’s era. The single will be included on Lennon’s upcoming GIMME SOME TRUTH compilation.
Starting Over: An Oral History of John Lennon’s Last Days: A Story About the Making of the Album “Starting Over.” An oral history of Lennon’s final days, Starting Over covers the recording of early demos, the sessions at the Hit Factory, the electrifying chemistry among the studio band, and Lennon’s struggle to keep the project a secret. The book also includes interviews with Lennon himself.
Shinedown’s “Second Chance”
Shinedown’s “Seconnd Chance” is one of the band’s most popular songs. It is the second single from their 2008 album The Sound of Madness, and is the band’s highest-charting single to date. The song has been featured in the movies Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, WWE’s Tribute to the Troops, and a promotional spot for the character Michael Corinthos on the soap opera General Hospital. It has been certified 3x Platinum by the RIAA.
The video features lead singer Brent Smith alone on a hill. In another scene, a girl practices her dance moves in her garage and then catches the band’s bus. The song has been the band’s biggest hit to date, reaching number one on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks on December 27, 2008 and number one on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks on February 14, 2009. This was the band’s first-ever single to hit the top of both charts simultaneously.
