BOSTON singer Tommy DeCarlo has just released his first single. The song I Think I Fell In Love With You, is the story of how Tommy met his wife Annie.
Here's the story from Tommy's official site:
The story goes back to 1987 when native upstate New Yorker Tommy was visiting his grandparents in Florida. Chance brought Tommy and Annie to the same restaurant on the same night and there was a strong and immediate attraction. However given Annie's shy nature, the fact that she had no telephone, and the geographical distance, a year-long correspondence via mail ensued. In the age of texting and instant messaging, not to mention online dating, the randomness of the couple getting together permanently was like destiny. Given their very young ages, 20 and 22, it's all the more extraordinary they reunited, got married, raised two wonderful adult children and continue the romance. They have literally been together their whole adult lives and have done and learned and experienced most of life's biggest milestones together.
The track features guitar performance by long time BOSTON member Gary Pihl. Tommy has also released another track A Man He'll Always Be. If you've been following Tommy, you may have already heard this song as it was a tribute he wrote for Brad Delp. The song has been expanded from the original version, which featured Tommy with a piano.
