First Hit #1: August 22, 1970
Make it With You is nice. That’s not a particularly deep or interesting sentiment, but it’s about all there is to say about it. All around, it’s a nice little love song, with rambling verses that the singer even admits don’t seem like they’re going anywhere. But that’s fine, because it’s nice. It’s not trying for much beyond just being a really pleasant song, maybe one that will get played at weddings, with a vocalist who sort of sounds like Anne Murray but is actually a man. It’s not ambitious, but that’s okay, because it’s nice. I like nice things.
On a related note, Bread’s song If is one of my favorite songs ever, so I’m not exactly biased against this band.
