The song begins with an infectious funky acoustic guitar rhythm, capturing your attention from the very first note. This is quickly complemented by a groovy drumbeat, a testament to Alias Wayne's musical prowess and keen sense of rhythm. There's a certain allure that's difficult to define, yet impossible to ignore.
