The Earps is a band that knows how to rock with its own unique brand of cowpunk. It’s also a band that knows how to write a funny song. I mentioned one of them in my post about 5 guilty pleasure songs. That one is called “Drag Queen” and talks about a sexual misadventure while the band is on the road. Another song on that same album (Here Come The Earps) is called “Hoggin’.” That is about a contest the band members have in which the one who scores with the biggest girl wins some prize. Juvenile? Yes, but still funny.
Then there is “Man Crush” off the album Get a Room. Let’s face it. Not a lot of guys could write a song about having a man crush on just one guy. This song lists three guys past and present on whom the narrator has a man crush. It is both a bold and humorous confession. Enjoy “Man Crush” then check out the rest of the band’s stuff, including an album of covers of Buck Owens songs. These guys make some good tunes. You can find all of their albums on CD Universe.
