about

Like button, love button. Welcome to “Love Button”, the lead-off single to this fresh new compilation album. “Love Button” also happens to be our first commercial single release of 2020. I imagine most people simply hit the “like” button when they’re surfing and interacting with a post. I always seem to find myself hitting the “love” button. I was into the cups while I was writing this one. It started with the opening riff and I just built it from there. And I definitely wanted to keep the jangle feel I had going on with the rhythm parts. And somewhere in the midst of all this musical bliss the i-pad lit up with a bunch of “like” and “love” reactions to a recent post on one of the social media platforms. I won’t say which one as they get enough attention already. Somewhere in those cups and in that song my devil streak showed up. Gee. How would those rockroll cats pen this one. It could have gotten a lot wilder lyrically. But let’s keep it subtle. Subdued. In the end I found a happy medium. Not quite sure where this song sits on the musical genre scale. I think I surprised myself. Again. And hey. Look on the bright side of things. Life is full of choices. All kinds of buttons to hit. Yes, brothers and sisters; your opinion drives the universe. It matters. And you can rest easy. I gave it a ninety-eight because I can dance to it … that’s akin to a “love button”. And what could be better than that … xoRJ

lyrics

“Like button” - “Love button”
“Like button” - “Love button”

Sexy little posts - hints of dynamite
So I respond in kind
Where does she get those crazy little devils
She puts at the end of her text line

I used to notice flowers
Now they’re flaming hearts and devils
Start to disconnect and I say - next time …

I always hit the “like” button - I’m kinda shy
But I’m gonna hit her “love” button - next time
Gonna wait around - she’s gonna come online
Then I’ll hit the “love” button - hit the “love” button
Gonna hit the “love” button - next time, yeah

“Like button” - “Love button”
“Like button” - “Love button”

Really has a flair - the way she builds her words
Her punctuation’s fine
So where does she get those steamy little devils
She puts all over her text lines

Power to the planet
Power to the people
I’ll have to plan it better when my heart’s on the line

I always hit the “like” button - I’m kinda shy
But I’m gonna hit her “love” button - next time
Gonna wait around - she’s gonna come online
Then I’ll hit the “love” button - hit the “love” button
Gonna hit the “love” button - next time, yeah

Funky little flowers are flaming hearts and devils
Heart’s all horse, reins on fire
Hot, cold sweats, get me to a medic
Better keep ‘em close when I’m here online

“Like button” - “Love button”
“Like button” - “Love button”

“Like button” - “Love button”
“Like button” - “Love button”

“Like button” - “Love button”
“Like button” - “Love button”

“Like button” - “Love button”
“Like button” - “Love button”

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. Our seventh full-length release "Piece Of Your Ghost" becomes available on June 18th, 2021. I'll see what I can do about a single release or two. September sounds good. Summer's coming! Time to kick a few ghosts around ... Something in mind ... hmmm ... xoRJ ... more
