An unashamed purveyor of Broadway-style theatrical and melodic ’70s-influenced pop, singer/songwriter Julian Perretta has been hailed as the 21st century Gilbert O’Sullivan. Born in London in 1989, at the age of eight he began playing Beatles songs on the guitar with his father, before switching to the piano. After studying Shakespeare at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, he joined Mark Ronson on his European tour, performing the producer’s interpretation of the Smiths’ classic “Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before.” A year later he supported Beyoncé and Girls Aloud on their arena tours, was championed on Perez Hilton’s influential blog, and signed a deal with Universal Music. His debut album, Stitch Me Up, featuring the single “Wonder Why,” was recorded with former Jamiroquai members Matt Johnson and Rob Harris, and reached number 30 in France, where Perretta now lives.

Julian Perretta – Wonder Why Lyrics:
I said why, did ya ever even try?
infiltrate but never find.
Just fallin’ slowly.
You left me so damn lonely.

Try, steppin’ back to when we rhymed.
Maybe recreate the times.
You were shy but happy.
And we were fine and dandy.

Here we are again, oh.
But backseat love don’t move me.
I’m just far too choosy.

Stop, drop, go through, open up the letter.
Don’t you want to make it any better.
Baby don’t you ever wonder why.
Back up, it’s not that I think you’re clever.
I just know that we could do much better.
Baby, don’t you ever wonder why.
I was never by your side.

Sigh, take a deep breath and rewind.
Bite your tongue and let it slide.
Got to see a doctor.
Maybe that will shock ya.
Love don’t die, no.
Especially when it penetrates and leaves you blind.
And shaking mad and reckless.
Got you feeling breathless.

Here we go again.
The backseat love don’t move me.
I’m just way too choosy.
I’m just way too choosy.

Stop, drop, pull through, open up the letter.
Don’t you want to make it any better.
Baby, don’t you ever wonder why.
Back up, it’s not that I think you’re clever.
I just know that we could do much better.
Baby, don’t you ever wonder why.
I was never by your side.
