“My baby cusses like a sailor and drums like a metronome,” is the opening line over cowbell, launching this sexy, swaggering song with horns and a groove that’ll have you grinning and hopping. Silver Lake 66 is giving us some very exciting songs just in time for summertime on the new album.
I love the way this song turned out! It started out with the guitar groove I came up with, Maria added the drum beat and it took shape from there. The horns are the icing the cake! This song is really fun and provides a great intro to the album. — Jeff Overbo
