Song of the Day #2,441: ‘Right Time’ – Nikki Lane

nikki_laneContinuing the Filmspotting discoveries theme, here’s a track from Nikki Lane’s 2014 album All Or Nothin’.

Lane is a country rocker who was born in South Carolina and lived in both Los Angeles and New York before settling in Nashville. Her sound and her lyrics reflect that blend of traditional country and more urban influences.

All Or Nothin’ was produced by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, who also handled those duties on Lana Del Rey’s Ultraviolence last year.

Today’s track and another one called ‘Sleep With a Stranger’ were featured on the Filmspotting episode in which Fifty Shades of Grey was discussed. From what I can gather, the songs are better than the movie.

Any day or night time is always the Right Time
Is always the right time to do the wrong thing
It’s 2 am and you’re sitting at the bar
Wondering if you should make your last call
Don’t make, oh don’t make my phone ring
‘Cause you know what I’d say
Honey it’s always the right time to do the wrong thing

Oh, we’re strolling into your daddy’s country club
That valet left the Shelby motor running,
Jump inside!
Oh, let’s take it for a ride
‘Cause you know what I’d say
Honey, it’s always the right time to do the wrong thing

Any day or night time is always the Right Time
Is always the right time to do the wrong thing
If you’re looking for a good time
You and me we’ll get on just fine
It’s always the right time to do the wrong thing

Always burst, let’s put out some smoke
I’m at his door asking for a talk
Hey, we’re both out of love
Well, he’ll tell you the same
Honey, it’s always the right time to do the wrong thing

Any day or night time is always the Right Time
Is always the right time to do the wrong thing
If you’re looking for a good time
You and me we’ll get on just fine
It’s always the right time to do the wrong thing
If you’re looking for trouble
Honey, I can show you how
My favorite time is right now

Any day or night time is always the Right Time
Is always the right time to do the wrong thing
If you’re looking for a good time
You and me we’ll get on just fine
Any day or night time is always the Right Time
Is always the right time to do the wrong thing
If you’re looking for a good time
You and me we’ll get on just fine

    This has a sufficient amount of grit and urban sensibility to work for me.
