“Hey There Delilah” – Plain White T’s

I know, this song has been played A LOT.

But it’s just the quintessential summer love song. Oh, it’s what you do to me. I mean, yeah!

The Plain White T’s released it in May 2006 as the third single from their third studio album All That We Needed.” It reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in July 2007.

Its message is timeless. Love can conquer all obstacles.

Here you go…in the key of D.
