Jimmy James is also fine. He's on John's lawn right now. - Owen --- Lamarr says of the song’s title, “While we were recording in the studio, the studio engineer, Jason Gray, asked me what was the name of the song? I said ‘I have no idea.’ Then he said, ‘How about Call Your Mom?’ and I said, ‘That’s dope. Let’s do it.’ : https://bit.ly/3pYzbxy -- The band's sophomore release, "I Told You So," will be out on January 29th.

Get Up
by R.E.M.
(19 plays) | (0 fans)

This song was born out of frontman Michael Stipe's exasperation at having to wake bassist Mike Mills up to go to work on the "Green" sessions. The band's former drummer, Bill Berry, remembered in the liner notes for Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage: "Michael mentioned, only once, that these lyrics were a polite jab at Mike's proclivity to sleep late when afforded the opportunity. Notice, however, that Mike's vocal enters before Michael's. He must have beat Mr. Stipe to the studio on that particular occasion!"

Maggie May
by Rod Stewart
(5 plays) | (0 fans)

He's fine. Don't worry! Rod Stewart is very much alive! ---- Dear John— This rod stewart song is maybe the first song I ever loved when I was a kid, now I’m rocking it in the kitchen with my own son who’s the age I was when I heard it. He loves it, too. Thanks for this moment! Josh in Ann Arbor ------ This song was inspired by the woman who deflowered Stewart when he was 16. In a 2007 interview, Stewart said: "'Maggie May' was more or less a true story, about the first woman I had sex with, at the Beaulieu Jazz Festival." He said, "There on a secluded patch of grass, I lost my not-remotely-prized virginity with an older (and larger) woman who'd come on to me very strongly in the beer tent. How much older, I can't tell you - but old enough to be highly disappointed by the brevity of the experience."
