In a lovely waltz, you’ll be instantly transported to the dance floor with this shuffley breakup song from Jesse Brewster.
“Bitter Pill” is one of those songs that for the most part wrote itself, which is always satisfying. The imagery to me was clear; a Gold Rush era saloon probably not too far from here (Northern CA), with a piano player in suspenders pecking out this little ditty about losing his girl, but knowing it was for the best. — Jesse Brewster
