"Hold My Girl" is a sweetly sentimental ballad in which George Ezra encourages his girl to open up to him about her troubles.
Crowded town or silent bed Pick a place to rest your head Give me a minute to hold my girl
Ezra wrote the song with his regular collaborator Joel Pott, who is the frontman of the English band Athlete. Pott has also worked with a number of other British acts including London Grammar and Gabrielle Aplin.
The song's gripping music video finds George Ezra in deep waters as his bedroom gets flooded. The clip was directed by Dave Bullivant, aka Bison, whose other credits include the visuals for Birdy's "Words" and London Grammar's "Rooting For You."
The Four Tops' "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" was written by the Motown team of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland. The phrase "Sugar pie, honey bunch" was something Dozier's grandfather used to say when he was a kid.
His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
