14 April 2017 - Lone Justice - Ways To Be Wicked

This song popped up on a Spotify playlist of mine, and it had been a long, long time since I had heard it.

Some songs, you just love from first listen.  This was one of them for me.  I was 14, and had just discovered Lone Justice thanks to their 2nd album, Shelter, the title track of which was getting significant MTV airplay at the time.  I remember not all of my friends understanding my love of Lone Justice - which, to be fair, probably initially had a little bit to do with teenage hormonal reactions to Maria McKee - but I liked that twangy rock sound.

Well, after that, I was inspired to check out their first album, Lone Justice, which hooked me.  It is a little more country than rock-n-roll - a change for me at the time - but the cowpunk shines through hard.  This song is about the countriest of the country songs from the album, and yet it resonated with 14-year-old me who didn't know one little thing about love.
