Sometimes a catchy song comes along that gets stuck in your head. You probably heard one today on the way to work in your car. Or maybe you caught yourself singing that oldie, but goodie while you were working in the yard or playing a round of golf.
It’s weird how songs can just get stuck in your head sometimes. That’s what’s been happening to me with this new song from the Josh Abbott Band. I was making dinner last night and humming this one. My wife was giving me weird looks, but then I had to grab her and dance around the kitchen.
Check it out. (The song, not my dancing).
Hangin’ Around – Josh Abbott Band
A lot of country music today doesn’t stick with the simple formulas that work. This reminds me of classic country songs that had great melodies that were simple and fun. The lyrics are also simple and fun. It tells the story of a guy that’s just ready to have a good time tonight with the girl he loves. All he wants to do is be with her. It doesn’t matter if she’s drinking a beer out on the town or if she’s staying home. He just wants to hang around with her wherever she is.
And did I mention that the song is really catchy? I can’t stop singing the melody. For me, that’s always the sign of a good song.
