"Sittin' Pretty"

With “Sittin’ Pretty,” Florida Georgia Line find their way back home to Country music, at least in the conventional sense, presenting a twang-filled beach adventure worth crackin’ a beer open & kickin’ back to for an hour or so – Seemingly taking a page from Kenny Chesney’s playbook, this song reeks of mid-noughties Country Pop sensibilities, doing away with the farmland sonnets about one-light towns you’re typically offered & trading them in for a good old story about sunshine & nookie. With lyrics like “that sunset straight up as it gets,” “I wish [this weather] would turn up the heat [a] couple degrees” & “pretty as a peach, a postcard picture of a west coast beach,” they really go out of their way to set the mood, transporting listeners to a world of sun-kissed tans & sandy toes where you can just let loose, ignoring all your troubles for the day – Of course, it wouldn’t be a Florida Georgia Line without allusions to sexual activity, with each verse describing how beautiful it is out but how all they wanna do is “get you in that AC, let down them blinds [and] call it a day,” content with using the vacation environment as an excuse to sit around doing nothing but spooning rather than actually experiencing the beautiful locale they’re in; Cheesy as it may be, it’s obviously meant to insinuate that the girl they’re with is so perfect that she can distract them from a vacation paradise, but self-awareness doesn’t make it any less corny.
In addition to a pleasant summertime story, the sound production of “Sittin’ Pretty” is on point, balanced to perfection with a nice emphasis on mid-tones across the board, giving each instrument a warm feel without overtaking the presence of other players, making for a decidedly homogenous sonic experience. Even with a fairly basic chord progression, each section of the song feels bright & new thanks to the sheer amount of effects they have going on at any given time; Multiple guitars pluck away at diverging melodies, sequencers play psychedelic synth lines & sound effects reminiscent of a late-nineties Teen Pop track, vocal melodies layer with superb tonal precision & real analog percussion plays a smooth, laid-back Hip Hop-inspired rhythm typically reserved for drum machines – There’s weight & purpose to every note played, regardless of instrument, making for a much more vibrant soundscape than the Florida Georgia Line boys have produced in years; That in & of itself is a victory for Country Pop music.

Lyrics

"Sittin' Pretty"

That sun's set straight up as it gets
Short shorts restin' just right on your lips
Kiss chillin' on your lips
I'm for sure gonna get it in a minute
First time I take another sip
That Chevrolet sittin' in the driveway
Is gonna stay sittin', girl we ain't gettin' anywhere
But closer I know you're in the mood with
Literally nothin' but each other on the to-do list

We got all damn day to do it our way
Like an old tire swing in the shade
Got it made
In the sweet spot
Baby you and me got
A couple free seats on a cloud nine ride
Don't matter if we're sittin on a porch in the car at a bar
Or a boat down to Panama city
Gonna be a hell of a view
I'm just fine long as I'm sittin' next to you
Sittin' pretty
Yeah
I'm sittin' pretty
Good
I'm sittin' pretty

Everything is feeling like it should don't think that I could
Get any better, but this weather I wish it would
Turn up the heat, couple degrees get you in that a/c
Let down the blinds call it a day

We got all damn day to do it our way
Like an old tire swing in the shade
Got it made
In the sweet spot
Baby you and me got
A couple free seats on a cloud nine ride
Don't matter if we're sittin on a porch in the car at a bar
Or a boat down to Panama city
Gonna be a hell of a view
I'm just fine long as I'm sittin' next to you
Sittin' pretty
Yeah
I'm sittin' pretty
Good
I'm sittin' pretty
Dawn
I'm sittin' pretty
Good

Pretty as a peach
As a postcard picture of a west coast beach
So pretty if I had to bet
This is pretty much as good as it gets

We got all damn day to do it our way
Like an old tire swing in the shade
Got it made
In the sweet spot
Baby you and me got
A couple free seats on a cloud nine ride
Don't matter if we're sittin on a porch in the car at a bar
Or a boat down to Panama city
Gonna be a hell of a view
I'm just fine long as I'm sittin' next to you
Sittin' pretty
Yeah
I'm sittin' pretty
Good
I'm sittin' pretty
Yeah
I'm sittin' pretty
Good
I'm sittin' pretty
Yeah
I'm sittin' pretty
Good
