Almost a year ago, Boomer Music Update posted about “10,000 Hours” by Country duo Dan & Shay, featuring Justin Bieber– it was big hit, and not only in Country but also on the Adult Top 40 format, as were their their previous #1s, “Tequila” and “Speechless.”
The duo co-wrote their latest single, “I Should Probably Go To Bed,” strongly influenced by the Beach Boys legendary Pet Songs album, especially Brian Wilson’s a cappella vocal arrangements. The song is slow and sad, about a girl/woman they used to love.
All my friends finally convinced
Me to get out of the house
To help me forget, to help me move on
Then I heard you’re back in town…
I should probably go to bed
The song is “Pop Country” and it plays up Dan & Shay’s strengths, which are their vocals.
“I Should Probably Go To Bed” got major radio airplay the day it was released, and it’s currently charting at #15 on the Country chart, and #21 on Adult Top 40.
