Sail is one of those songs that I have been meaning to put in the music club rotation for quite a while but something else boppier (is that a word) always came along and pushed it to the side. No more….This is a great tune for the meeting planner on that last night of an event, an hour after the lights have dropped, belly up to the bar, ordering the first of many cocktails with your crew.
There is nothing better.
Before the song, let’s talk about the name of the band that is fronted by Aaron Bruno- AWOLNATION. Funk-ass name if you ask me and not all that catchy but here is the explanation from the Wik:
The name AWOLNATION is derived from Aaron Bruno’s high school nickname. In an interview with Kristin Houser of the LA Music Blog, he stated that he “would leave without saying goodbye because it was just easier, so that’s where the name Awol [slang from the military acronym for Absent WithOut Leave] came from.”
Grab a glass, some scotch, and a few ice cubes…..
I Give You, Sail
