I Try, Ben Taylor

I have to say, it's hard not to enjoy the Cheerios commercial that features this song. [I'm pretty sure it's been used on another commercial, too, but I can't quite remember]. Regardless, this cover of Macy Gray's classic is both sweet & sentimental. I love Ben Taylor's version of one of my favorite songs from the '90s. It's perfect for a Wedding.


I think this song would be lovely as processional music or for a first dance, although it may be a little slow.


I may appear to be free
But I'm just a prisoner of your love
I may seem alright and smile when you leave
But my smiles are just a front
I play it off but I'm dreamin of you
I'll keep my cool but I'm fiendin
I try to say goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

Ben Taylor's voice is incredible. Trying to think of an analogy, I think it's best to say his singing could cure disease. It's That Goodl

This is gorgeous. I've always loved this song, but this version is even better than the original. Thanks for sharing!
