  • Lyrics
  • BCC guitarist Joe Bonamassa initially had doubts about this song before changing his mind. Frontman Glenn Hughes explained to Musicradar.com: "About five or six years ago, I wrote a song called 'Soul Mover,' and I wanted to write another one with the same kind of groovy, Hendrix-y, slinky, swaggery Strat vibe, which Joe could actually strap on a Strat for and play on. This was the song. Funnily enough, Joe wasn't knocked out by the song when I first played it for him, which was a little surprising to me since it's a blues-based song. But when we started recording it, all of a sudden he was jumping up and down and running around like a little kid. He loved it! I said, 'Trust me on this one, I've got a feeling about it'"
  • Said Hughes: "I love the Crosby, Stills & Nash three-part harmonies. And I get to do my wailing blues on it – I'm basically takin' it to church here. I'm a preacher! I'm doing what I love to do here. I'm being a rock 'n' roll preacher."
