The Uptones, “Ridiculous”

What a monster song!  Moose hits the nail on the head.  This is the simplest message song I’ve ever heard.  It’s soo right on. Scott Tee and his muted trumpet really set up Moose’s vocals, and Scott’s solo is centerfold material in Trumpet Magazine. The entire band plays their asses off. I predict big things for this song.
