Shot Of Life
The rhythm of this is loosely-based on Kenny Rogers “Ruby Don’t Take Your Love To Town”; taking a straight country rhythm and adding an extra kick in the off-beat puts the song entirely in its own space & time. Comparing the eternal search for love & happiness to the search for that one perfect note; the thought of it made me smile. I think that thematically this songs sets up the whole record. I wanted to keep the arrangement as lean as possible so the full attention is on the lyrics. Less as they say, is more.
