Summer Songs: #7 "Alcohol"

Singing about a boy's inability to confess his love during a New Year's Eve party, Erika Hoffmann shares small hope-filled moments along the way ("Every time the phone rings it sounds like a song") but ultimately declares the opportunity lost ("Every night you fall asleep with your headphones on / Look for me and I'll be gone"). It's a bittersweet love song from Michigan's Saturday Looks Good To Me, but one that's played in celebratory fashion with its loud exclamatory riffs and 60s pop sensibilities.
