"Used To Be Confused" by the Johnny Ill Band is perfect for this warm weather



We haven't heard anything new from the Johnny Ill Band in a spell; hopefully that will be resolved soon? The weather got really nice today here in the Detroit metropolitan area — like, really nice. And I thought that this might be a perfect Detroit summer jam. What do you think? It's at least a year and a half old now; does that make it a classic, yet?

The song and the video for "Used To Be Confused" are both laconic, buzzed, and excellent. Also, "I felt like somebody else 85% of the time" is one of the best lines. I think you could use it as some sort of test. If the people you know can't heavily relate to that line, it might be time to kick them to the curb (unless it's family, of course, or someone who's really hot that you have a chance to date).
