Much Needed Laughter from the Master of Light, Fun Country Songs!
So, there I was, driving in my car with country music blasting as usual, when Mr. Brad comes out blazing a tune from his 2007 Album '5th Gear', called 'Ticks'.
Having not heard the song in a while, I had forgotten how the main lyric causes a hemorrhage of laughter!
If you're not familiar with that lyric, get ready, because no other love song expresses love quite like this one does! He goes on to sing how, 'the only thing allowed to crawl on you is him' lol!
Country music can be emotional and laughter scores as the big emotion in this comical lyric:
'Cause I'd like to see youI'd like to walk you
Out in the moonlight
I'd like to kiss you
Way back in the sticks
Through a field of wildflowers
And I'd like to check you for ticks
The song was released as the first single for 5th Gear in 2007 and to no surprise, reached the top of the country charts. The song was also a downloadable tune on Guitar Hero World Tour.
When asked about the song, Brad said that 'when you're raised on a farm, 'Ticks' are something you need to think about'. The song is about a funny pick up line a guy uses on a girl he meets in a bar .... 'hey there babe, I wanna check you for ticks' lol. Yep, I'd probably bust a gut if that was said to me.
Anyone who's lived in the country (even the city!) knows that Ticks are a real problem! Thank gawd I've never had to be checked for them personally, but I know some who have! Yikes. In fact, when we planted our Birch Tree in the front yard, we spent sometime reading about 'Ticks' and Birch Trees! Then of course there's the over 50 cedar trees we planted in the backyard that had me thinking as well! So far so good. Fingers crossed.
Enjoy the song!
