There are so many songs that are out there everywhere then all of a sudden they disappear and you only hear from them on cheesy countdowns run by music channels over Christmas if you are lucky.
So roll up and welcome to Forgotten Songs where we celebrate these forgotten wonders
Why Can’t I? – Liz Phair
Songs that you hear through films are a funny thing because everytime you hear that tune you automatically think of that particular movie and this is a song that does it to me. I first heard this song through the film 13 Going on 30 and everytime I hear it I think of that film but its a fun rom com so it doesn’t bother me too much.
Why Can’t I was a single by American pop rock singer Liz Phair, it was released in the middle of 2003 under the record label of Capitol and it was produced by The Matrix. The single was the lead song of her album that was called Liz Phair.
The single that was released in May did really well in the charts and reached the top 40 in US, New Zealand and Belgium it also went certified Gold as well and was one of Liz highest charted songs to date.
Everytime I hear this song it makes me smile, it is such a jolly uplifting song that it makes me wish I was in that state of really liking someone. It is a feel good song and it always makes me happy.
