Hot Georgia nights. A boy. His car. A road trip. Steven Tyler. An older woman. 

They all run together like mingled sweat when you’re crowded together or when naked bodies meet.

Sweet Emotion is a stream of consciousness jazz riff to a rock’n’roll beat. It’ll leave you juicy and warm as a fresh-picked ripe peach.
