Single Review: James Wesley, “Walking Contradiction”

by

February 23, 2012

(No, it’s actually not a new Starburst jingle)

  • “People want to know where I stand…”
  • “I go to the church
  • “I go to bars
  • “I read the Word
  • “The Stars and Stripes are in my heart”
  • “Love my Momma
  • Hell raising Christian”
  • “I like my country mixed with a litle rock
  • “I plant my corn in rows”
  • “Hell I drive a Ford
  • We are who we are, and we are what you see”

Does that tell you all you need to know?  Hey, at least this time we’re spared the namedropping.

Grade:  C

Listen:  Walking Contradiction

    Ugh!!! Is it bad that I become judgmental from the opening guitar riff?

  2. if I didn’t know any better, I’d say Kevin wrote this. Excellent job crafting this type of review. I’ll stay away from this song, for sure.

    Ultimate compliment!

  4. Matt WNo Gravatar says:

    Really liked Wesley’s first three singles (Jackson Hole, Real, Didn’t I), but this one not so much

  5. Dan MillikenNo Gravatar says:

    I can’t believe you, Ben. Didn’t James Wesley give you everything you ever wanted? Love you like crazy? Let’s be honest. Didn’t he?

    …rick santorum lettin’ his hair down?

  7. TomNo Gravatar says:

    …oh yeah, about the song – fb and twitter have entered country music songwriting. perhaps, mentioning a prius might have added a nice twist to the contradiction theme of the song, which otherwise might get completely overlooked, if it hadn’t been pointed out in the title prominently.

    still, not the absolute worst addition to that inevitable “dirt roads & bonfires” compilation that’s lurking somewhere out there on music row.

  8. ScottNo Gravatar says:

    This is one of the best country songs I have heard in a long time! James Wesley rocks!!!!

  9. TomNo Gravatar says:

    …yep, scott, i also enjoy his ever so subtle ironic take at the subject.

  10. MarkNo Gravatar says:

    I just heard this song on the radio and love it! I think it is the best song from James Wesley to date. It is upbeat and I think people can relate to the lyrics. I can’t believe the review this guy wrote…I guess everybody is entitled to their opinion…
