New Track: Bonnie McKee – ‘Restless’
Despite her pleas in regards to her unreleased music, Bonnie McKee is still seeing a whole mess of her demos leaked onto the Internet. Demos are demos for a reason and are usually terrible, there’s something about her latest leak, ‘Restless’, that makes us re-think our whole position on Bonnie McKee.
Bonnie’s main strength in the music industry is having the knack for creating killer melodies and crafting fantastic lyrics around them. She may not be the most original or strongest solo artist, but no one else can write pop quite like her.
‘Restless’ is a true testament to that. The crunchy pop/rock sound is circa Katy Perry’s ‘One Of The Boys’ – so by no means could it be a hit today, but that doesn’t deny that it’s a solid pop song! The lyrics are so flirty/cutesy fun – nothing but ear worms waiting to invade your brain.
I can’t keep on pretending/That we’re just friends/When my body’s calling for you late at night/But I try to be patient
Oh, so restless, baby that I’m out of control/Oh, oh, I can’t wait to get you alone/I’m so restless, baby and I’m risking it all/Oh, oh, it’s too late for taking it slow, baby yeah/I only want what I can’t have/Oh I’ve got it bad/I’m so restless, baby that I’m out of control/Oh, oh, I can’t wait to get you alone/How can I get you alone?
