Riff: Alkaline Trio – “Young Lover”

Apr 2, 2013

What’s wrong with tonight?/…Young lover, right now, you’re mine/Don’t think of your tomorrows/Let’s kiss like we could die/Tonight

from Young Lover lyrics by Alkaline Trio

A3 mix all of the questionable elements of YOLO, “Baby It’s Cold Outside” and Kings of Leon’s “17” for an underage date-rape jam that’s unsettlingly well-penned; [LISTEN].
