ASD Music Review:

Good dance beat with added lift from hand clapping in the second half of every stanza. Tune is easy to follow with leads from guitar, saxophone, and organ. Tons of fi lls from the same instruments make for a full sound. This is a rock song that could drive the energy level up. Scott sounds good; he mostly prompts his calls this time.
