Israel Cruz’s Freak Tonight
I was fiddling with my friend’s player and heard a song that stuck to mind. It’s called Freak Tonight, and is a single from Israel Cruz. Apparently, my “radar” missed this song. Anyway, I liked it so much I did a little research to satisfy the curiosity that I’ve been having since I heard the song.
I found out that Israel Cruz relocated to Australia when he was just a budding adolescent. Apparently, he already has two singles tucked safely under his belt. Moreover, his singles made it to the Australian singles chart. I say not bad, right? Anyway, I wouldn’t want to bore you with the biography of Israel Cruz, since you probably all know about him anyway.
Let me just talk about how I found his song, Freak Tonight. I would say that it’s pretty simple. Nothing much going on. For me, it would be the perfect tune to listen to when all you want to do is to veg out or do nothing at all. The lyrics are pretty much the same. However, I liked the tempo—not too fast, not too slow either. I confess I listen to it when I’m cleaning a room—a Herculean task you have to earbash me before I get onto it. At times, I listen to it when I can’t sleep at nights. It’s a pretty versatile song, don’t you think so?
Anyway, enough yabbering about Freak Tonight. I will, however, try to look for more songs from Israel Cruz. He’s got a unique simple style I find interesting.
