Jam of the Day | Adam Green - What Makes Him Act So Bad


Songs like Adam Green’s “What Makes Him Act So Bad” put me in a weird mood. Of course, I mean this in a good way. The song is just a hair over two minutes, and it gets my brain moving. It’s probably the freaky, albeit brief, guitar solo. Or maybe it’s Green’s vocals. They sound creepily confident…like he’s actually going to get the answer he wants. Kinda like Jeff Tweedy sang while in Uncle Tupelo, "wouldn't that be sweet, to know where you stand." (What if we really just told each other what we wanted – that would be soooo cool.)

But on a song like this, I really don’t listen to the lyrics. It’s so damn carefree that I don’t have to – I just repeat it again and again at work until I get to go home. Oh, and I sort of dance in my crappy chair.

Stream/download and enjoy.
