Tenspoke Indies Week: Give to Get
The band wrote this one together in one writing session at Apple Studios in Tampa. I think everyone was feeling the rock that day. Sometimes as a band you'll go for months of tedious sessions or rehearsals and come up with nothing, and then all of a sudden you'll complete an entire song in an hour. Who can explain that?!
Lyrically, I flat-out wanted to write a song about a prostitute in kind of in an old Stones-y kind of way, with a lot of color. In fact, I had a whole character written out – her name was "Mona Malone," and she was basically this superstar slut. But no one liked it, and probably for the best, because I'm sure it would have sucked. So, we used the help of a friend. Chris Moody of the Dead 50's out of Harrisburg sat down with it and came up with some great ideas that really led the direction. Especially "Girl, I gotta find what it is that makes your fever pitch. You know you move so fine your toppin' the list."
