“There’s a certain type of crazy that will always keep us sane,” Toby Hitchcock sings in the second verse of “All That’s Mine To Give,” the latest single from the legendary songwriter Jim Peterik. They mean the madness that all lovers share — the faith that they’re worthy of affection, the magic won’t fade, and that their partners will continue to find them fascinating. Improbable, sure. Then again, crazy as it seems, it’s something that happens all the time. The words of “All That’s Mine To Give” acknowledge the miracle of love and celebrate togetherness and the indissoluble bond between two genuine soulmates.
The music backs the sentiment up. Peterik, who has written wildly romantic songs for Survivor, .38 Special, Cheap Trick, REO Speedwagon, The Ides of March, and other world-famous bands, gives us a skyscraping ballad with a melody as sparkling and unbreakable as a diamond in the platinum bezel of a wedding ring. “All That’s Mine To Give” is a song for the soundtracks of our lives: our first loves, our late-night pledges, our weddings, and our anniversaries. It’s an adamantine composition from a writer who knows plenty about enduring value.
