The 5 O’clock Shadow: Friday January 17, 2020


The Shadow artist recently dropped the Dale Earnhardt portion of their band name. The actual Dale Earnhardt Jr. is a fan of the Detroit band.

The original band’s name conjures images of the ocean, surfers and warm, sunny California days.

The song has a spiritual element to it. The Beatles’ “Here, There and Everywhere” was inspired by this song. John Lennon and Paul McCartney heard it at a party and went back to Lennon’s house to write it. Paul McCartney once called it “The greatest song ever written.”
