Keith Urban, ‘Little Bit of Everything’ – Song Review

Little Bit of Everything
Capitol Nashville

Perhaps it should be no surprise that after five months spent judging ‘American Idol,’ Keith Urban has delivered his most pop-friendly single to date in ‘Little Bit of Everything.’ The talented singer and guitarist uses tricks in production that a less established singer would be skewered for. The result is a delightful summer jam that’s short on nutritional content.

The electronic effects during the introduction — and later, with a drum machine — stand out over Urban’s guitar work and the song’s message. But a sugar-coated chorus rights any wrongs.

I don’t need too much of nothing / I just wanna sing a little chill song / Get my groove on, pour something strong / Down in my drink / Oh, I know that I don’t need a whole lot of anything / I just want a little bit of everything / Na na na na, na na na na,” Urban sings.

The verses are carefree… to a fault. All of the wrinkles of testosterone aren’t quite ironed out of the first verse, but the Warren Brothers and Kevin Rudolf do a better job of injecting some blue-collar, country boy sensibility into the second.

Now I don’t need a garage full of cars / But I’ll take a whole box of Cuban cigars / And I’ll smoke ‘em nice and slow / Like they were good for me / Don’t need a ranch or a big piece of land / But I like to get a little bit of dirt on my hands / A big ole couch in a big ole room / Still feels lonely when it’s just you,” Urban sings before the chorus repeats.

‘Little Bit of Everything’ is a good fit for the superstar. He wraps his arms around the spirit of the song and doesn’t try to make it something bigger than a catchy, feel-good, open-road anthem. Lyrics that dig deeper would make his first track from an upcoming album more memorable, but that chorus will keep this song from ever becoming forgettable.
