Riff: Billy Currington – “Hey Girl”

Oct 9, 2013

Hey girl, what’s your name, girl/I’ve been lookin’ at you, and every guy here’s doing the same, girl/It’d be a shame, girl

from Hey Girl lyrics by Billy Currington

The mildly humorous Ryan Gosling meme of the same name has far more to offer than this God-awful, SNL-worthy, unintentional self-parody of radio country lyricism. That said, the short guitar solo is surprisingly ripping.
