Tom Higgenson and Tim Lopez from the Plain White T's stopped by the J-14 office to tell us all about their new album The Wonders of the Younger. You definitely remember their huge hit "Hey There Delilah, and you're probably rocking out to their newest hit, "Rhythm of Love" — it's featured in the promo for Secret Life of the American Teenager!
Tim filled us in on the inspiration behind the new song. "'Rhythm of Love' is about a girl I had a crush on when I was a kid," he says. "We had crushes on each other in fifth grade, but I dated her when we did our last record. We broke it off when I started touring. After we broke up, I wrote 'Rhythm of Love' to try to get her back."
And Tom tells us why he writes best from his own personal experiences. "I think everyone in life goes through the same things, so when you put it into a song, there's tons of other people who can relate," he says.
