I took a poetry class in college once and my professor forbade us from writing about high school love because, quite frankly, nobody gives a sh*t about it except for people actually still in high school. As we get older, high stories do lose a bit of relevance and luster, but Anthony Hamilton manages to pull off the high school love story with his new tune, “High School Love.” The track is nostalgic and heartfelt, making it appealing to the grown-ups, too.
It sounds a bit odd to hear such a deep voice talking about dating teenagers, but other than that, it works out. Plus, it’s good to hear Hamilton dropping random tracks like he’s a rapper or something. We never mind when that happens.
