Day 5: Song I Learned About During Quarantine

For day #5 of the Vocalo Song Challenge, here’s a song that I learned about during quarantine.

I heard the song “I Can’t Have You But I Want You” by the band ROOKIE a couple weeks back on Chirp Radio. They’re a newer Chicago band on the Bloodshot label. According to their Spotify profile, “ROOKIE is a six matching jumpsuit-clad, shaggy-haired friends from Chicago who play rock-n-roll that’s more at home in their parents’ battered LPs than on their friends’ streaming playlists.”

I went to fetch the video- which I hadn’t seen before today- and it’s wonderful. Do give it a watch & listen.
