Gavin DeGraw – “Finest Hour”




Gavin’s gone back to his swanky soul-filled sound roots that gained him notoriety earlier in his career.  The “Finest Hour” is slotted in the #3 position on the ‘Make A Move’ CD Track Listing. As his fifth CD, earning a peak position of #10 on the US Billboard charts, going back to the basics seems to be paying off for him. Across the album you hear his signature original sound while he breathes a vibrant current style into the classic rock gait he’s known best for.

Finest hour is a fun and funky pop song that depicts an amazing night out that is quite “fuzzy” the next morning. It’s one of those rare “Best Night Ever” stories with current undertones experienced by many a college student and even some older adults. Age doesn’t make you exempt from bad choices or as we’ll politely all them “Life’s Little Mishaps” for the older crowd. 

It’s the kind of night where you’re out with friends, one drink leads to another… and another… and another. Somehow you make it through the night, find yourself home, possibly undressed or partially clothed, passed out on the floor of the bathroom wondering how you got there and what happened leading up to this point.

That’s when you remember that technology is a BEAST and consult your handy dandy device for clues to piece together…. Yep, BEST NIGHT EVER!!…. While you stare at it, scratching your head trying to remember what’s her name?? Thinking gosh she was cute, should I call, then…. She Texts!! And what comes next is ….

If that’s not enough to spark your curiosity, then nothing’s going to get you there… except well… It’s Gavin DeGraw!

Other songs from the same album that you may recognize are “Best I Ever Had” and “Make A Move”.  

“Finest Hour” Lyrics:

Got a text from you
Is it really true?
All the stuff we did last night
We shut down the bars
Danced on top of cars
Asked some girl if she’d be my wife

Oh, and I got pictures that I don’t remember taking that are so bad
And, oh, I had to break into my own damn apartment
How bout that?

They say the best always come from the worst nights baby, but
Oh, it was crazy
And, oh, it was amazing
We blew all our money
And crashed in your Mercedes
Yeah, we both got numbers
But didn’t get the names
And my whole damn party lost power
It was, it was, it was our finest hour

Bruises on my knee
They’re all over me
Think I mighta lost a fight
Found a drink receipt
From 42nd street
Man, we musta lost our minds
I got pictures that I don’t remember taking that are so bad
I think I mighta fell asleep in the subway
How bout that?

They say the best always come from the worst nights baby, but
Oh, it was crazy
And, oh, it was amazing
We blew all our money
And crashed in your Mercedes
Yeah, we both got numbers
But didn’t get the names
And my whole damn party lost power
It was, it was, it was our finest hour

Oh, This night was ours
This night was ours
And it was our finest hour

Oh, This night was ours
This night was ours
And it was our finest hour

Got a text from you
Is it really true?
All the stuff we did last night

Oh, it was crazy
And, oh, it was amazing
We blew all our money
And crashed in your Mercedes
Yeah, we both got numbers
But didn’t get the names
And my whole damn party lost power
It was, it was, it was our finest hour, our finest hour


Our finest hour, it was our finest hour
This night was ours
This night was ours
And it was our finest hour
