My two biggest subjects of inspiration when it comes to writing music is: Space, and racing. For jams like this especially, racing is great, because racing is rock 'n roll!!
Since this album (On Impulse) is supposed to be a throwback to my old style, I just absolutely had to throw in a racing-inspired track! When I wrote this song, I just envisioned all the race-cars positioned in the starting grid. Getting ready and eventually starting up those powerful engines. At the signal, those roaring speed-machines let loose from the starting line!
I also imagined in the (somewhat) quieter sections, the drivers would be downshifting and slowing to take some tight corners. Then once the action kicks back in, I picture them coming out of those tight turns and then just stomping on the pedal. Cars fighting for the lead as they accelerate down the straightaway!
I've got a good feeling that this track is going to be the opening song for the album. Anyways, hope you all enjoy the song! ~DAR
