Riff: Tim McGraw – “Tinted Windows”

Feb 4, 2013

I know I didn’t pop the question right/But that diamond looked good in the dashboard light

from Tinted Windows lyrics by Tim McGraw

Recalling the lustful concerns of a teenage love, where privacy was the biggest priority when it came to buying a motor, the album’s big lighters-in-the-air ballad may provide a sting in the tail to its rose-tinted nostalgia but still comes off second best to Tina Turner in the steamy window stakes.
