Timmy Sean continues to surprise and delight with each new entry in his continually engaging and surprising Song of the Week project. For the last April entry, we get a perfectly-realized slice of catchy pop and roll that would have been right at home on any hit radio station back in the ’70s. Get ready to dial up a great song that started out being named after Poison’s Bret Michaels.
Bret Michaels? We’d better let Timmy explain: “I had the opportunity to play a gig on drums with Bret Michaels of Poison last week in Hollywood, and my East Coast Celebrities bandmates John Tiedemann and Michael J. Roxx reminded me of a song I originally wrote back in 2008 named after him.
“I was always really proud of the harmony guitar solos in this one, but the original ‘Bret Michaels’ song lyrics, I immediately hated. I had a tough time coming up with a new hook that seemed to work, so it’s sat unfinished for the past seven years. Prompted by Michael and John, I decided to dust this one off, completely re-write the lyrics, and finally finish it. Here is the song-formerly-known-as ‘Bret Michaels,’ from here on out known simply as ‘Hey Girl.'”
Whatever the name, we know you’re going to dig this one. If you haven’t heard the previous entries in this fun series, check ’em out by clicking here, where you can read about all of the previous Songs of the Week. You’ll be glad you did!
