Whiskey Riff Song Of The Week: “Sleep On My Side” By Megan Moroney

Happy Monday, y’all.

Today for the Song of the Week, we have a new tune from Megan Moroney called “Sleep On My Side,” from her just-released debut studio album Lucky.

And while I’ve really had the record on repeat all weekend, I can’t seem to get it out of my head.

The production reminds me a lot of Kacey Musgraves’ “Step Off,” and it’s super country and fun, as Meg delivers a searing statement that this guy is no good, and he’s certainly not fooling her.

The chorus is so sassy, thanks to the penmanship of Meg, Ben Williams and Steven McMorran:

“And that don’t make you Mr. Wrong
But you’re far from Mr. Right
’Cause I’m a glass of red fine wine
And you’re a bad idea on ice
It’s good that we’re so different, but when the day is done
I sleep on my side
And you sleep with everyone”

But my favorite line comes during the second verse, where she admits that she goes out of her way to call her mom, and when his mom calls him, he just lets it ring:

“I call my mom and when yours calls you, you let it ring.”

And if that ain’t a red flag, then I don’t know what is…

Certainly check out Megan’s entire debut project, but if you’re unfamiliar with her music or who she is as an artist, this is a great place to start:
