random thoughts about songs – Kid Rock

Posted: July 26, 2010 in Music, review

The Kid Rock song “All Summer Long” annoys me with two particular phrasings.

1) In one verse he sings:

“Splashing through the sand bar
Talking by the campfire
It’s the simple things in life, like when and where.
We didn’t have no Internet
But man I never will forget
The way the moonlight shined upon her hair.”

I know he’s musing over the simple things of life back then, but his transition from “no Internet” to moonlight shining on her hair strikes me as awkwardly sudden.

2) In the Chorus he says:

“And we were trying different things
We were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake
To our favorite song…”

The writing seems a bit lazy. I mean, couldn’t he have used the word “things” to end *every* line? Such as:

“And we were trying different things,
And we were rhyming things with things,
Making things out by the things,
And some other things…”
