Gavin deGraw doet verschillende pogingen om een muzikale studie te volgen. Maar uiteindelijk slaagt hij daar niet in omdat hij het optreden vele malen leuker vond. De Amerikaanse zanger valt juist op als hij op het podium staat en in 2002 begint hij met de opnames van zijn debuutalbum Chariot, dat een jaar later verschijnt.

Een opmerkelijke rij noteringen begint met I Don’t Want To Be, dat bij ons in 2005 zijn debuut in de Top 40 is. De zanger scoort tien hits in de Top 40, waarvan alleen Soldier (2012, #13) geen alarmschijf is geworden. Geen van de nummers weet de top 10 te bereiken; Chariot (2005) is met een 12e plaats de single die de hoogste positie bereikt.

In 2013 verschijnt het vijfde studioalbum van deGraw, Make A Move. Zowel Who’s Gonna Save Us als ook de titeltrack belanden in de tipparade.

In 2014 verschijnt het album Finest Hour: The Best Of Gavin DeGraw. Fire is zijn tiende Alarmschijf en komt eind augustus in de Top 40.

Het vijfde studioalbum van DeGraw, Something Worth Saying, verschijnt in het najaar van 2016. Daarvan verschijnen She Sets The City On Fire en Making Love With The Radio On als singles.


Songtekst

One, two, three, four

I tried giving up
Walked through quite enough
Had to call it a day
From an ex who showed up falling to
Grand piano falling on the edge
Of the parkway

Got no good advice
Hotline called me twice
Said: I went through the wall
Do you have a quote to lend me
Or a friend to send me
But I got no help at all

So I loosened my lips
And let a little prayer I memorized
Do what I just wished
And suddenly to my surprise

Oh, DJ, when you play my song
Make me feel bigger than old King Kong
At the risk of this coming out wrong
Feel like making love with the radio on
Oh, every time you play that jam
Grabbed my baby right by her hand
Even if my day was going all wrong
Feel like making love with the radio on

Snatched my medicine
Light it like Edison
Turned it right up to the sky
You're my absolutely fictional
Pure perfection
My Venetian boat ride

Blown out speakers
And worn out tweeters
And still I get the effect
If you got my go-to living
It'll get me in the spirit
Even if I'm a complete wreck

Don't you call it a flaw
Everybody needs some peace of mind
It should be the law
To take a little private time

Oh, DJ, when you play my song
Make me feel bigger than old King Kong
At the risk of this coming out wrong
Feel like making love with the radio on
Oh, every time I hear that jam
Grabbed my baby right by her hand
Even if my day was going all wrong
Feel like making love with the radio on

I want to feel like this
So hold me forever
Emotions are real like this
And flow like a river
And you are the only one
And all I need, yeah

Oh, DJ, when you play my song
Make me feel bigger than old King Kong
At the risk of this coming out wrong
Feel like making love with the radio on
Oh, every time I hear that sound
Engine running and I'm homeward bound
Even if my day was going all wrong
Feel like making love with the radio on

With the radio, with the radio
Feel like making love with the radio on
With the radio, with the radio
Feel like making love with the radio on

With the radio, with the radio
With the radio on
With the radio, with the radio
