Track of the Week: “Party in the U.S.A.,” by Miley Cyrus
May 11, 2011 9 Comments
Okay, I know that I officially have to destroy my man-card for liking “Party in the U.S.A.” by Miley Cyrus. It’s cool, I never really used my man-card anyway.
I hear you need a man-card to wear aviator sunglasses. Don’t wear them. You need a man-card to buy a Ford F-350,000,000. Don’t want one. Apparently, you need a man-card to lounge around the house with your hand stuck in your pants watching spaghetti westerns, while drinking beer and eating a brontosaurus burger. I’ll pass.
If I ever need a man-card again, all I have to do is belch in public or wear a beer-dispensing helmet and James Bond will magically appear to reissue my man-card. No problem. In the meantime, I’ll enjoy one of the catchiest tunes I’ve ever heard. And guess what? Its hook is driven by a funky guitar riff.
Click on the thumbnail below to see a PDF of the transcription for this funky riff. Be warned, gentlemen, that your man-card will be revoked immediately upon clicking on the link.
