When I first heard this song from Dierks, I thought the tempo of the song was much slower than I expected for a drinking, parting song. Today Dierks releseased the video for song. I found out that although I listened to the song before, I was not hearing the words.
After watching the video for 'Tip It On Back' from Dierks Bentley I came away with a new idea of what the song is about. These days so many things can make us feel overwhelmed. Sometimes you need to go out and forget about the stress of life and have some fun. This can be at a concert (like in the video), at a local bar with some friends or whatever.
I am not saying that Dierks is advocating that you go out and get smashed to forget your problems. My view is that he and the song is saying that when you can step back from life for just a little bit, you just might come back with a new perspective on what can be done about what is stressing you out.
