This hair-metal stomper is the opening track from 2009 American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert's debut album, For Your Entertainment.
This was one of four tracks on the album, which was helmed by A-list producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Kid Rock). Cavallo also worked with the 2008 Idol winner David Cook on the album he recorded after winning the show.
The song was penned by former Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins. Lambert told Rolling Stone why he recorded this track: "It has a classic rock riff to it that I thought was so sexy. Another band that was a major reference was Queen. You hear that influence in a couple different songs, and the chorus of that song, I wanted the harmonies to sound like Queen, I wanted it to be really full. Also, bands like Sweet used to do that with their vocals, Glam bands. I just wanted to show people I had a sense of humor with this s--t. It's fun, it's supposed to be kind of campy."
Kacey Musgraves originally offered "Follow Your Arrow" to her friend Katy Perry. However, Perry thought Musgraves should record the song herself as it seemed, "like something that you would totally say."
Arizona DJ Guy Zapoleon played UB40's "Red Red Wine" four years after it was released as part of a feature on songs that should have been hits. Listeners started requesting the tune and within weeks it was topping the Hot 100.
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
