Today for the Whiskey Riff Song of the Week, we have a song from Kip Moore called “Just Another Girl.” From his 2017 album Slowheart, the rockin’ track was written by Kip along with Westin Davis and Ben Helson.
Though it was a deep cut from that record that included popular singles like “Last Shot” and “More Girls Like You,” whenever the weather starts warming up and I can roll my windows down in the car again, I always find myself turning to this one and blaring it at maximum volume.
It definitely has a southern rock leaning in the production and sound, and is kind of reminiscent of some of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s older stuff, which Kip told iHeart was no accident:
“It’s just the song of attitude. That song started with the guitar riff and I think that when I was hearing the guitar riff, it was the first things that came to me and Westin Davis’s mind of this rapid fire.
It put us in that 70s rock and roll kind of place, and it was more touching on a little bit of how hot shot everybody thinks they are nowadays in social media, for the most part, and just you’re not what you think you are, kind of thing.
And you haven’t had ahold of me like you think you have, and just trying to really grasp that old school rock and roll feel to it.”
The lyrics on this song paint such a descriptive picture, too, from the opening lines when he talks about her packing up her “mink coat, pink stilettos and rosary” to the end when he imagines her flying down the road “blaring Joan Jett with a cross around her neck”.
It really is a total “fuck you” breakup song, and if you’ve never heard this one before, today is your lucky day:
