There’s been some new songs live, some not-at-all suggestive album art, and even a making-of-the-record video, so having some actual studio music to hear from the Middle Cyclone sessions is pretty swell. The relaxed and playful, Nashville pop-styled tune is titled “People Got A Lot Of Nerve,” and the people she’s talking about are you chumps who are surprised that she’s a maneater. I have extrapolated this from when she repeatedly sings “I’m a man-man-man-man-man-maneater, still you’re surprised-prised-prised, when I eat ya.” I have great interpretive skills, don’t worry about it. (Also it is impossible not to add ‘watch out boy she’ll chew you up’ in this post, although I really tried.)
