Just when I thought Florida Georgia Line couldn’t get any worse … I will say this – they actually outdid themselves on “Sun Daze.” If Sodom and Gomorrah had a theme song, this one would be it and God would have had no choice but to eradicate it from the earth. The upbeat melody can’t make up for the lyrics that are so unimaginative that it’s embarrassing to realize just how popular the duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley has become in pop-country music. It’s a song about relaxing and living it up, partying with friends while playing some flip cup and cornhole in your flip flops. OK, well, no harm just yet. Then they drop the line, “Rock a little bit of hip-hop and Haggard and Jagger.” If Merle Haggard or Mick Jagger listened to FGL, they might be offended, but likely they’ll never hear it anyway. But the absolute worst part of the song is the cheesy and therefore gross innuendos in the lines: “If you want you can pet on my Harley / I’ll sit you up on the kitchen sink / And stick the pink umbrella in your drink / that way that we’re feelin’ we gone by this evening.” I do not have a dirty mind, but you don’t have to tread too far into dirty water to get to the real meaning of those lines. It’s just not country music and not even good pop music. FGL better enjoy the spotlight now, because when they’re older singing about sticking a “pink umbrella” in a girl’s “drink,” no female in her right mind will want to pet their Harley.
