Welcome to Bossy’s Ear Worm, which features songs currently in Bossy’s headphones. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
This song isn’t new. And it’s not all that unique or particularly inspired. The band 311 isn’t new, and in fact since forming in Nebraska in 1988 they’ve had all kinds of hits. But Bossy loves this song, off of their 2001 record From Chaos, because it has a vibe.
And Bossy always was a sucker for this brand of white boy reggae.
Also, lyrically speaking, Bossy has an appreciation for how it seems as though the songwriter sat down and wrote it out just as he was feeling it, without the more typical rules of phrasing.
take me away from the norm
I got to tell you something
I had to put it in a song
and it goes like
Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
