Riff: Tim McGraw – “One Of Those Nights”

Feb 4, 2013

You hold her close and you’ll never forget how her heartbeat feels

from One Of Those Nights lyrics by Tim McGraw

Complete with a few well-worn green light cliches, McGraw paints a vivid picture of an ‘I was there’ party, albeit one with a midnight slow dance, on a nostalgic country ballad. Shame that the overwrought riffs & gospel choir vocals don’t quite match the aura of the supposedly magical night.
