Musically, this song is based on a Robert Johnson-style blues riff G. Love came up with. He worked out the song with his bandmates, bass player Jimi "Jazz" Prescott drummer Jeffrey "The Houseman" Clemens. It came together quickly and they were happy with the song, but they had no idea it would go over so well until they started playing it live and crowds would go crazy.
"It's poetry," G. Love told Artist Waves
.?The lyrics, the three instruments and the syncopation are perfect. Live, the song is great. I've tried to figure out what parts of that song work, and why it resonates, and then attempt writing something with a similar sense of composition. But, I can't do it. It's one of a kind, man."
