The entire concept of this song and the song itself is amazing. “Goons (Baby I Need It All)” by Mona takes on the well-known quote from Frank Sinatra in which he said, “Rock n’ Roll smells phony and false. It is sung, played, and written for the most part by cretinous goons.” Gotta love Frank, but he had no idea what the hell he was talking about. Mona gives us a rock and roll anthem with this track and it is incredibly catchy. We need more songs like this out right now. Listen to the track above and see if it doesn’t get your head bouncing!
