Song of the Day, July 21: Crazy Talk by Kelly Jones

KellySheBANGToday’s song is a delightful pop put-down. Kelly Jones mastered the short-form power pop tune on her second album, the wonderful SheBANG! She presents a great collection of story songs ranging from joyous to cautious to wistful.

On Crazy Talk, she tells a suitor that he needs to step up his game. He offers excuses, explanations, and an array of obfuscations. Jones has had enough, and let’s him know that she’s done with his stories. Charming, chirpy keyboards, smart, bright percussion, and a nice crunchy guitar anchor her high, clear vocal. The result is a quick I’m-done-with-you that leaves the listener wanting more.

Enjoy this pop gem today.
