Amy MacDonald - Mr Rock 'n' Roll

Sneaky song – starts like a ballad deep in the woods, and roars into life with “So called Mr RockNRoll is dancing on his own again, talking on his phone again to someone who tells him that his balance is low. He’s got no where to go, he’s on his own again.” Great fun, with lyrics reminiscent of “how does it feel to be on your own with no direction home?” The music keeps the beat moving along at a fast clip as Amy keeps up with her tasty mouthfuls of lyrics. “And there’s a happy ending.” Always, as in movies and books. “And they’ll meet someday somewhere far away.” Shoutouts for This Is The Life and Let's Start A Band.
