Lizzie Cates Proves Romance is Never Out of Style With “The Romantic”
I am a romantic. I put on my macho face most days, but deep down, I’m a softy. In today’s world, I feel like the idea of being firm, yet loving someone wholeheartedly and publicly is a relic of the nineties. I remember when men used to open doors, bring home flowers, and were not afraid to hold their girl’s hands while walking down the street. Whenever I think all this is dead in the twenty-first century, Lizzie Cates writes another song. Her latest single could not be more on the nose. “The Romantic” is an anthem for romantics everywhere.
I hate to judge, but the first time I saw a photo of Lizzie Cates on Instagram, I just knew our maturity levels would not match. Looking at that little blonde girl with braided pigtails, I felt we would have little to no connection for an interview. However, after listening to her music, I couldn’t help but feel connected to her. So much so that I called Lizzie that day to learn more about her story. After that forty-five-minute conversation, she had her hooks in me and still does. She and I are both romantics towards life, people, and music. For someone who knows her, “The Romantic” makes perfect sense. I just hope it resonates with many of you. I believe romance is something we need now more than ever.
I think the lack of romance in today’s world is a product of the environment we all find ourselves in. Us humans have the most “stuff” we have ever had since time began. Every day, our $1000 TV tells us that we won’t be happy without that new iPhone, car, or an overpriced latte. You might easily want to point your finger at the advertising agencies, but we only have ourselves to blame. We repeat the same bad habits just to come up empty inside. Relationships and how we treat the people in those relationships are paramount to happiness. To maintain a healthy connection with your partner, do something romantic and keep hitting that repeat button. Lizzie Cate’s “The Romantic” screams this sentiment.
“The Romantic” is a song we all need today. So let’s focus less on stuff and more on the people in our lives. If you think romance is a thing of the past, you are wrong. Lizzie Cate’s latest single proves that it will never be out of style. You can’t say the same about the new shirt you just purchased.
