Brent Baxter’s analysis of “Lights Come On” was very interesting. If there’s any truth to all the talk about what “Millennials” are like, then the song should hit pay dirt with Jason Aldean’s audience.

Baxter's second point, “The listener is the hero”, sure sounds familiar:

“Not only does Aldean talk directly to the listener, he’s complimenting them. They’re the hero of the story. The listener is the hardworking guy or the cool girl who deserves a good time. [H]e makes them feel good about themselves, which of course, makes them feel good about the singer.”

Yup. Everyone’s a winner. And everybody gets a trophy.

I wonder if “Who said life is fair?” will ever come back into vogue.
