There are plenty of topics that have been explored in the singles I have heard from the upcoming album from Go Set Go. None have been so on the nose as “I Just Wanna Be Your Lover” which is the most classically romantic song I’ve heard from MikeTV aka Go Set Go.
The song starts suddenly with lead guitar, drums, rhythm guitar and bass. I loved the melody which is off kilter and actually reminded me of Nirvana although there was no distortion. It’s like a march that is ascending. MikeTV always gets me with his catchy melodies and that’s no exception with the chorus. It’s catchy but short. He doesn't linger there long before going back to verse and then going back again.
The song is actually pretty sweet at points when he talks about being with his lover for a lifetime. That being said the song gets sexual. There are some groans which certainly sounds like a simulated sex act. It wasn’t exactly what I was expecting and it reminded me of the groans you hear in the song ‘Rocket Queen” from Guns N' Roses.
Is this the most poetic or thought provoking song I hear thus far from the new album? Nope, not even close. It’s a straightforward declaration and sometimes that can be a good thing. Sometimes it’s best just to come out and say it. Hey you know what “I want you” and yes “I want to be with you.” There are times it’s best to skip the poetic ambiguity and just say what you mean so the other person can understand.
“I Just Wanna Be Your Lover” is therefore a pretty punk rock song in a number of ways. It’s direct, uncompromising and isn’t afraid to get down.
