Song of the Day - Day 855

Today's song is...


Here is a perfect example of a song that I was indifferent to on first listen, but has grown on me a lot over the last few weeks. It was all the lyrics about slacks that finally drew me in. Cause really, how can you go wrong with a song about pants? And I was just tickled at the idea of the guy only returning one slack. Because it raises the excellent question: why are they called a pair of slacks anyway? It is only one thing. I enjoy the contradiction too, of the primary character being described as "icky" and not really a great guy, but also someone everyone wants to know and be friends with. Also, I must admit, I totally didn't get the "first name: getting all up in you, last name: face" lyric, until I saw it written down.

Excellent use of accordion here too, but what I really noticed was the great bass line. This might just be my favorite bass line on the album. Personally, I think this would be a fun one for them to adapt for live performance, but maybe it wouldn't come across as well as I feel like it would. I'd sure like the chance to find out though.

  1. My favorite song on the album! Love it. And the video totally exceeded my expectations -- I didn't think it was going to be bad, but I didn't expect to like it so much.
