There are thousands upon thousands of love songs. There’s probably one for every happy and hurting heart, from Springsteen’s "If I should Fall Behind" to Prince’s "Nothing Compares 2 U." On their first album, acclaimed Atlanta band, Drivin’ N Cryin’ wrote a song about love. It wasn’t perfect. It didn’t want to be. Love isn’t perfect. Now, 30 years later, '"Mean Everything" is as relevant and tender as when the needle first touched wax. Never published in print, featuring illustrations by M. C. Joudrey, this little book offers the song’s poetic lyrics for all to hold and share.
Drivin' N Cryin' is a rock band formed in 1985 with a number of critically acclaimed albums to their credit.
