1. The way Hubbard says, "make you wanna dance, don't it baby." It makes me laugh!
2. The lyric, "Rock a little bit of hip hop and Haggard and Jagger." It is incredible thing to be able to take random famous names and rhyme them.
3. The acoustic guitar. More prominent in the verses, this has a reggae vibe that does make you want to dance.
Then this came out.
What horrifies me about this song is the lyrical content. It was written by Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelly, Cary Barlowe, Jesse Frasure, and Sarah Buxton. Come on, Sarah Buxton! Buxton has written some of the best songs of the last decade, including "Stupid Boy" (recorded by Keith Urban) and "Don't Let Me Be Lonely" (recorded by The Band Perry). This song is so far from the standard those songs set it's horrifying. This song mentions almost every abominable thing that can go on at a party. Hubbard sings, "if I'm lucky yeah I might get laid" and "I sit you up on a kitchen sink, stick the pink umbrella in your drink." Women are treated like this in country songs often, as just another "play-toy" for the men's day off. I can't believe Big Machine Records agreed to even release this song. And then, Hubbard just has to sing about "getting stoned" and putting "jack in his coke." This is a new low, guys. A new low. I am disgusted.
