Usually when I listen to David Ford, I want to spend some time in deep thought. The British singer-songwriter has penned some of my favorite heartbreakers in the past few years — tunes like “I Don’t Care What You Call Me,” “What Would You Have Me Do,” and “I’m Alright Now.” I could listen to these songs for hours — laughing and crying at the same time.
But, also to my delight, Ford does have a lighter side, and it’s equally marvelous. Case in point: “She’s Not the One,” a wonderful track off Ford’s new album, Let the Hard Times Roll. If you’re not already familiar with Ford’s music, today’s Jam of the Day is a great place to start.
