Steel Panther Singled Out Week: Tomorrow Night
The song Tommorow Night was inspired by a friend of ours who, unfortunately, is no longer with us. Seriously, he moved out of the apartment in August. He was always trying to get laid. He wasn't very sexy and didn't have spandex or long hair so he relied on honing his verbal game with the ladies.
One night, at an Iron Maiden concert in Los Angeles, we stumbled out into the parking lot only to bump into a pack of hot sluts. As they were scoping us out, they inquired as to what we were going to do for the rest of the night. With no plans set yet, and nowhere to go, our friend declared that he had no idea what was going on tonight but instead exclaimed,"I know where a party is tomorrow night!"
Thus began decades of ridicule and pure enjoyment at the expense of our friend. Again, satchel had come up with the idea for the chorus and after playing the cassette for us, we immediately went into the studio and started writing and arranging this masterpiece. The odd time in the pre chorus was influenced by my early exposure to Robert Fripp and Marillion. What's the phrase, 'you can take the cheetah out of the jungle, but you can't take the panther either'?
Regardless of the saying, Tomorrow Night is a tribute to our friends inability to score with the ladies and it also reflects on the way way Steel Panther lives...from one party to another!
