The hubby is officially on his summer break, with the kids’ summer break having 2 weeks remaining. Let the fun begin!

Meanwhile, it’s Monday, and Monday means music! This week is a freebie week – grab your favorite tune(s) and dance along with us, won’t you?

Let’s start with a song that finds the singer recounting a romantic night spent in California with a female. He details several other places they’ve visited, but despite the attractions of these, he only has eyes for her.

The song is based on a real experience the artist had, but the location has been changed. He was quoted as saying:

“[This song] was a true story I’ve had a lot of songs about a girl gets up in my truck and the perfect night, but this one dives a little deeper into that. We [used] California in the song, but it was a night in Hawaii.”

Give a listen to Chase Rice with “Eyes On You”:

Next up is a new song from an artist who hasn’t been heard from in a while. He’s the guy who says he just tries to have fun everyday.

“It’s the train that I’m forever on”.

Here’s the elusive Uncle Kracker with “Floatin'”

Next up is a bouncy make-up anthem that finds this artist looking to end a dispute with her argumentative lover.

I don’t wanna fight tonight / I’mma let you be right / We can make up if you just kiss me at the next traffic light

The song’s concept was inspired by the artist’s relationship with her fiancé Daryl Sabara, best known for playing Juni Cortez in the Spy Kids film series. The artist was quoted as saying:

“This song is a dance bop, it’s about not wanting to waste any time fighting when you could be loving. I wanted to talk about my relationship with Daryl [in the song] and a cute thing we do. What I taught him early on was, you know, I’m always right. I really am. Daryl learned that early on, so any little fight we have he knows it ends with me being right. I wanted to put that in a song.”

Without further ado, here’s Meghan Trainor with “Let You Be Right”:

Last, but definitely not least is a song that, despite its title, is not an ode to hard living females, but instead the song serves as an encouragement to young men to help inebriated woman to make their way home safely rather than trying to sleep with them. The artist was quoted as saying:

“It’s certainly a compelling track in the regard that it was written from a father’s perspective. If my daughter were ever in that situation, the song is how I hope a young man would treat my daughter.”

Without further ado, here’s Chris Janson with “Drunk Girl”:

That’s a wrap for this week – have a great Monday – see you on the dance floor!

  1. Totally love Uncle Kracker it’s good to see he’s got a tune goin and woo hoo Meghan Trainor has another new one right? Love it!!!! Thanks for sharin’! She’s just too cute~! Love her too pieces. Okay I’m pooped I’ve been up too long. Thanks for all the great tunes my friend. BIG HUGS & thanks for holding down the fort while I take a few days off. BIG HUGS!!!

  2. Stacy,

    I’m late to the dance party this week and I apologize for the delay but it’s been one of those weeks. This summer is quickly fading on us, isn’t it? It’s been a hectic one on this end and the past seven days have especially been wild with my ear tube surgery, DH’s eye exam, his oral surgery, pulling together a baby shower on the fly for DD#1, and a whole of in-betweens. I’m exhausted, to say the least.

    I hope y’all are enjoying these last few days of summer fun. Will PN do the home-school thing this year? I can’t believe how your kids are growing up right before my eyes!

    Your mewsic set is all new-to-me. While I’m not a huge fan of Meghan Trainer, I think she did step things up with her newest song. It doesn’t sound so much like all her other material. 🙂 I think my favorite artist featured might be Chris Jansen. I’m going to head over to YT in a few to sample more of his tunes.

    Thanks for sharing the dance floor with me. Have a blessed and boogietastic day, dear friend!

  3. Uncle Kracker – OMG. I finally got to see him perform. I have a story to tell. Back the first weekend of August I blogged several times about a balloon festival and music fest where I live in upstate New York called the Spiedie Fest. Well….in 2001, back in his rapper days, Uncle Kraker was scheduled to be the headline performer – and then he was dropped because of his “off color songs”. He promised to sing them cleanly but the festival sponsors said no. Anyway, in 2010, they finally let him perform. I didn’t know he had switched and become a country singer. Too funny and so distracting I can’t even listen to the other songs, at least right now. Loved this memory (and I enjoyed his song, too.)

  4. Hi Stacy,
    Another fabulous 4M post in which you never fail to introduce me to new-to-me artists and songs! I love it!
    And another thing i love is Chase Rice’s voice! Wowsa, now that’s some vocals that I could listen to all day and night… 🙂

    I also like Uncle Kracker’s song, “Floatin'”. The musical arrangement reminds me of another song and I can’t think of the name of it right now… BRB
    Okay, I’m back. It was driving me nuts that I couldn’t remember the song that “Floatin'” reminds me of so I had to go back and listen to the chorus over and over until I could pull just a few lyric phrases from my memory banks and try to determine the song that I’m thinking of. And I finally figured it out: Kid Rock’s “All Summer Long”. Does the chorus in “Floatin'” remind you of the chorus in “All Summer Long”?? Or am I imagining things?…

    Anyway, thanks for including “Drunk Girl”. I never heard it before and it’s a wonderful message. May the world’s men take Chris Janson’s words to heart and always do the right thing!

    Have a good weekend. See you in a few days for the next 4M post…
