We’ll Never Be As Young As We Are Today

I enjoyed Mayer Hawthorne’s first two albums, but I was wondering if he was going to continue dabbling with his retro 60s/70s Soul revival. His third LP, Where Does This Door Go? in 2013, was a big step forward. Most of the best songs on the album were produced and co-written by Pharell Williams, including my favorite The Stars Are Ours. This funky pop-rock anthem bounces along with a beat reminiscent of Steely Dan’s Reeling In The Years and features a tale of rowdy high schoolers having a crazy weekend. Had this been around when I was a Senior, I would have blasted this out the window. Instead, I just did the same thing during the Summer of 2013, and for four odd minutes or so, I was as carefree as Allan hanging out of his Chrysler LeBaron.
