Legend George Strait took to a spotlight lit stage back in 1985 to perform a heart breaking number that would widely appeal to his fans and followers for both its southern sound and sorrowful message. The song, titled "Fool Hearted Memory", initially featured in a 1982 film known as "The Soldier" and, while the movie failed to reach its anticipated level of success, Strait's song gained popularity and recognition.
The song is a smooth, honky tonk sound that perfectly carries the storyline of a man who is unable to accept the idea that the love of his life is never coming back. Strait sings,
"But it's a fool hearted memory.
It won't let him see that she walked out the door.
He's got a fool hearted memory.
And he sits patiently here every night so it can fool him more."
A melody that resonated with many, Strait received an ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) Award identifying his song as one of 1982's most performed country tunes!
