Singled Out: Anchored's Last Night
I remember writing Last Night like it was yesterday. It was the last song I wrote for the album "Listen to This" and on the "Last Night" of the writing sessions. That's where I got the title and then developed the story around the name.
The song is about meeting a girl at a bar the night before but not just as cut and dry as that. Our video for the song captures the deeper meaning. In the dating world you have millions of different options but I chose to pick the final two. For example, you meet two different people on the same night and you don't know what baggage they have hidden in their back pocket if any at all. It's the ol saying "do you turn right or left'. In this case one girl likes to go on walks in the park, going out for ice cream, wants to start a family etc. The other girl likes to party, and do so in every place the other girl likes the brady bunch route. Kids aren't in her picture and doing shots and going wild is. Now, neither are bad depending on what you want. To each their own. It's kind of split down the middle. Some guys might want the more tame chick, and others might just want the "bad girl". In the video you can see both options in plain sight. Now you never find out who the guy chooses but that's simply because I leave it up to you and yours to pick which one gets "singled out" haha.
There are some lines of the song that remind me of my past dating times. I was more into the party and good times at first. Lines like "I got out of bed and shook my head, forgot every single word I said" is pretty self explanatory and happened a few times haha. You can get wrapped up in it as well, as in the line "the next day but the same old scene". After all that I was lucky enough to find my one and "she's got a heart that's naked, so tough that I can't break it", "look what she's done to me, I've told everyone." haha The heart that's naked just means open. I think my favorite line in the song is "when I closed my eyes she was long gone", simply because it's so true and happens every night somewhere in the world. Mostly to girls that get taken advantage of but it happens to guys as well. You meet somewhere, have some drinks, hear the right things, end up back at your place or theirs, do some #$%@^&*, pass out, and wake up alone. They get what they want and then are out of there. Obviously that's not the person you want or maybe it is on some mornings after a bottle of jager and a case of beer hahaa. So to those of you out there in the dating world…here's your theme song…good luck! and thanx for taking the time to read this.
