Sultry southern rock tune with rich and heavy vocals by the wonderful lead singer of Alabama Shakes, Brittany Howard. Her voice echos from the inspiration of Aretha Franklin, Patsy Cline, and Janis Joplin. The Thing is she has this raw soul in her voice. It’s just so captivating. you can understand the mood of this song just based off of the voice. It’s commands attention but in the most sincere way possible. The track is about Howard trying to come to an agreement with her lover, who always seems to have bud head with her. It’s causing unhealthy love, and she want to stop it before the damage is permit. She wails as she says ” my pride and you pride why can’t we both be right. Meaning she willing to compromise for the sake of their relationship but it works two ways.
