Riff: Eli Young Band – “Drunk Last Night”

Oct 5, 2013

It’s off my chest but never off my mind/Two drinks in, keep that hurt/You feel bad, I feel worse/I swear it’s the last time every time/I got a little drunk last night

from Drunk Last Night lyrics by Eli Young Band

Taken for what it is – cheesy alcohol-based country-pop as yawnfully predictable as the rest – Eli Young’s drunk text/fight to a lover (or ex-lover) is at least more relevant in the world of digital ‘oops’ than its chart-topping peers. If country’s somehow your thing, it’s one of the better picks.
