Blue Boy

Album: Unbreakable (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Gordon Bahary helps listeners through hardship in this song: "I don't know you from Adam, but I somehow love you, I'm not leaving until you're ok, just put your CD on replay." Bahary told us this was one of his favorite songs on Unbreakable, as he liked the "jazz elements."
  • Bahary has been active in music since the 1970s, playing synthesizer for the likes of Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock and Ramsey Lewis. Unbreakable was Bahary's debut solo album. In our interview, Bahary explained why he waited to release an album until 2012: "This is the first time I explored my voice and songwriting fully, after producing for other artists. I was happy with it and felt I had something to say now."
