When I wrote this song, I was imagining someone cruising through town in an old school convertible. The cruising music starts at measure 13. But then, they have to stop at a traffic light and wait. That’s the music at measure 25. Once the traffic light turns green, they start cruising again at measure 33.

The right hand and left hand do the exact same thing at measure 65. After that, the right hand at measure 77 is the same as measure 13, just up one octave.

Keep the left hand really steady in this song. It keeps the groove and gives the songs a sense of forward direction, especially when the bass line walks up and down.
