To The Other Side

Waiting For The Hurricane

Shawn Wells from Bradenton, Florida, USA

There were multiple reasons I chose this song. Its a give that where I live in Florida, we are like a bowling lane for hurricanes. We stand as the lone pin watching each one pass wondering when we will become the spare. Thus the line: "The weather reporter from MIAMI is clear". The strongest reason for picking this song was watching Chris perform this LIVE on video, you could see the fun that he had with the song. Ironically, through the first four hours of recording it, my producer kept saying "you're far too serious, just have fun with it." Lastly, it is a very challenging song-irregular guitar pattern compiled with lightning quickness on two lines and if you are not precise, you will not pull it off.
