Frankie Ballard, ‘A Buncha Girls’ – Song Spotlight
Frankie Ballard hails from Battle Creek, Mich. But he’s got a country heart. Said heart also has a weak spot for footloose and fancy-free ladies, which is wholly evident in his new song, the summer-ready ‘A Buncha Girls.’
‘A Buncha Girls’ is built on a big ol’ potent electric guitar riff. Throughout this anthem, Ballard, who won Kenny Chesney’s ‘Next Big Star’ competition, espouses the virtues of carefree girls in his rawk ‘n’ roll-meets-country drawl. There’s no deep message in this feel-good jam, just a celebration of girls looking for nothing more than a good time out of life. Hey, who can blame him, right?
This top-down toe tapper finds Ballard dreaming of ladies “sittin’ on a deck/ drinkin’ fishbowl margaritas” or “packed in a jeep / headed to the beach for a weekend” as well as those gals that are “rockin’ out in Vegas / Ain’t got no time for sleepin’.”
Ballard sums up all this pro-feminist love in the chorus, singing, “A buncha girls / Lookin’ for a good time / Breaking hearts / Turning heads /And looking so fine / Nothing drives the boys right outta their mind / Like a buncha girls.”
Sung like a man utterly bewitched by the planet’s most beautiful girls! ‘A Buncha Girls’ could be the first true anthem of Summer 2011.
