This one's just all about the way it feels and sounds. It's basically a dance track made by someone who doesn't really dance, but like I say in the hook, "Move your body even if you hate the song."

NOTES FOR PARENTS: This one is perfect for kids of all ages, almost completely clean language throughout (though there's one "damn" and a decent amount of reasonably tasteful sexual innuendo that most kids won't get). Most importantly, it's a track for dancing that even a toddler can recognize, like my adorable niece who loves to dance to my music and deserves not to hear me say terrible things. This project's for all of you, but it's really for her and her brother above all.
