Not everyone in Kansas is tripping on some hippie shit (see ya White Flight!) or dogging evolutionary theory in elementary school textbooks (what up, Kansas Board of Education!). No, some people are just hanging at the bar, wearing some sweet feather earrings, and singing about falling in love, or trying to. This track, from Dri’s much under-appreciated Smoke Rings, is about as wistful and breezy and it gets. When she sings that all my ladies are actin crazy, you sorta know what she means. Staying in love is super hard.
