"Get A Grip" was one of the first songs I did for "Bad Penny" I guess I was setting the tone for what would become an ALBUM, and part of that was acting upon things I'd gotten sick of on "Extended Play"
I'd been playing live a lot around then and was becoming more and more aware that I had a lot of slow songs. To me, that's ace and I'll always do slow songs, but I'm not sure they really grab people. Instead of kicking against that, I thought I'd play to it and try and do more upbeat, "slick" material, like a lot of the 70's soul I'm into, just to see if I could. I did it quite a lot on "Bad Penny"
"Get A Grip" is that, but in the lyrics, I'm just going on at myself. I make myself miserable and I can't help it, all my songs are about a girl but I can't whinge about her and not point the finger closer to home.
