Goosebumps

Album: Cut To…Bridget Kelly (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Kelly told The Boombox that this song gives her a chance to delve into a topic she rarely speaks about in public. "It's so different for me," she stated. "'Special Delivery' for me was like a romantic take on relationship and the demise of it. 'Street Dreamin'' was so much more fun. And 'Goosebumps' now is a very sexy, sultry song about just telling a guy how to follow my lead in a sensual encounter. So it's really cool. It's a much more mature side of me that I didn't think was in me."

    "I was telling (producer) Jerry Wonda, 'I don't know how I can talk about this,'" Kelly added "They're still trying to fight and make me a lady and get me to wear dresses and stuff like that, and I was just telling them I didn't know if I was ready to talk about sex yet. 'Eww. Boys are yucky'. That's kind of how I feel sometimes, but this song is a much more aggressive take on the relationship side."
