There is no more personal musical form than a singer alone with a guitar. That simplest of arrangements can be one of the most difficult to pull off. The artist needs an engaging voice, great lyrics, and honesty. Thomas Noel has all of the above on display on ‘Pass Me By’, a torch song bleeding the complex push and pull of emotions inherent to young love. The song has some great lines like; “You haven’t broken my heart in a couple of weeks,” and “this is where I’ll stay till you pick me up again.” The refrain is the simple plea of the chorus, “Please don’t pass me by again.” Great stuff.
