Hot Thoughts

Album: Hot Thoughts (2017)


  • Britt Daniel sings on the first verse about how a girl's teeth are so white and bright they light up Shibuya, which is a busy shopping district in Tokyo, Japan.

    Your teeth shining so white
    Light up this side street in Shibuya tonight

    It was Britt Daniel's girlfriend who inspired this lyric. He explained to NME: "Last spring some guy who barely spoke English came up to her in Shibuya and told her she had beautiful teeth. I just thought this was a very courageous and original way to hit on my girlfriend."
