Sometimes a song just jumps out at me. That’s what happened yesterday as I was driving home from work, listening to a burn disc of my latest playlist. It was a mix, so I knew all the songs were good, but DAMN this is a perfect song. I didn’t realize its greatness until the car stereo was properly cranked. The great intro, verse, chorus, production, back-up vocals and air-guitar-worthy riffs all combine to give it a special kind of momentum rarely heard. It’s my favorite song as of the last 24 hours and it’s called I Can’t Pretend by The Barracudas. I shouldn’t have to say it, but play this record loud!
