Riff: Jack Johnson – “Shot Reverse Shot”

Sep 16, 2013

You watch me blush, blink, sink/Trust in me so you don’t have to think

from Shot Reverse Shot lyrics by Jack Johnson

Echoing the fast-paced vocal workout of Billy Joel‘s “We Didn’t Start The Fire“, Johnson describes himself as the paper to his wife’s rock and scissors as he reels off a series of completely random and slightly surreal metaphors on a handclap-heavy piece of Hawaiian pop.
