How do you properly honor one of your favorite songs? I’ll do my best here.
“More Than Words” by Extreme is a soupy love song, admittedly. It was a stark contrast from EVERY OTHER SONG Extreme did. But it was their biggest hit. When it came out in 1991, I wasn’t such a big fan…girls still had cooties.
But in my teenage years, I absolutely fell in love with the guitar play of Nuno Bettancourt. The simple melody and beautiful vocal harmony.
When I got a little older, it was my inspiration to play guitar. (I mean, if I could ever play that song, I was SURE the ladies would come rolling!). Well, even after years of practice, I don’t really have the song down pat. And despite my limitations as a player, I did alright for myself, since I’m getting married in two weeks!
As we were making the playlist for the DJ, I lobbied for my cheesy favorite love song, but it doesn’t look promising
Anyway, enjoy this live version of “More Than Words!”
