Song of the Month: "Good Girls" by Chris Cab

Nick Ebert '14
Contributing Editor 

This month’s song is both a soothing sound for studying for finals as well as a prelude to the summer months ahead. Chris Cab’s smooth voice fits right in with a relaxing bass line and bluesy riffs on the hook, but where this song really shines is the chorus as those same sounds are juxtaposed by raspy vocals that remind me of a soulful John Mayer. The lyrics are also very poignant; with “Good girls don’t grow on trees,” Cab reminds us that we should hold on to "what" - should be "who"? treats us well, because it will be best for us in the end. This tune is sure to help you unwind and relax as school comes to a close.
