  • A fan of fantasy games and movies such as Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, Eric Hutchinson is a self-confessed dork. The Washington DC-born singer admits on this cut that he'll never be cool. "There's a line in the song where I say, 'Cool people, maybe they're just born with it,' Hutchinson told AOL Music - "that's sort of how I feel. I tried so hard for so long to be cool. Then there's sort of your own personal cool."
