But Nudie's approach to marketing is very much like his music: rooted in tradition. I felt the best songs on Remember This were those that combined Nudie's timeless country voice with 21st-century themes, such as the despairing "Sex Kisses." These songs will jar the listener's sense of time.
Nudie's second go-round, Everything's Different in the Night, takes a more conservative approach. Other than a reference to smoking weed in "It Ain't Gonna Happen Today," these songs could easily have been written at any point in the last 60 (possibly 70?) years. Nudie reminds us, though, that even with the invention of the smart phones, heartache and loneliness never change. Story songs like "The Royal Tavern" and "Hearts & Flowers" display Nudie's excellent command when it comes to lyricism, but it's the songs about truly intimate moments, like "Everything's Different in the Night," that'll tug your heart strings and jerk some of your tears.
