Mayer Hawthorne: Maybe So, Maybe No Video (*Official Video)
One of the best songs, if not the best song, on his album is sort of like an ode to his native city. “Maybe So, Maybe No” is a cover of Motown’s legendary Detroit group The Holidays. The original song is one of Mayer Hawthorne’s favorite songs (ever).
He also has a song on the album entitled, “I Wish it Would Rain”.
Which I’m sure is inspired by David Ruffin and the Temptations.
