John and Marianne

by Mike Amabile

Genre: Country


Rank: 28


This song is the epitome of irony. Some have called it a modern day country Romeo and Juliet type ballad. Though perhaps the most interesting thing about the song is the contrast between the lyrics and the music. The music suggests a fun, happy, uplifting mood, while the lyrics quickly take a turn from joy to sorrow. This is more than a song, but a story. It is based on a poem that Amabile wrote well over ten years before the song’s release date in 2009.
