#songoftheday = DONNIE VIE: “HOW ARE YOU” (#songsforourtimes #10)
Former Enuff Z’Nuff frontman Donnie Vie took to Youtube today to release this touching version of his classic “How Are You?” recorded live in his home studio. The song hails from Enuff Z’Nuff’s under-rated ? (Question Mark) album and has never sounded sweeter.
“How are you? / Are you doing all the things you wanted to? / Are you finding new romances? / As for me / Well, I guess that I’m as good as I can be / Under the circumstances,” Donnie sings softly, the song taking on new meaning in these trying times. If you find yourself getting teary-eyed while listening to it, you have that in common with us.
