The Foghorns are back (not that they ever really go away, bless ’em) with “40 Watt Light,” a tune whose warm, smoky swing belies the cold, bitter lyrical content. We seem to have here a portrait of a man trapped in a cold room (most likely in the Midwest) surrounded by strangers, haunted by the headlights of a lost love. The lyrics are vintage Bart Cameron: painting just enough of a story to have you reaching for a beer (or wiping a tear) while leaving enough unsaid to let you make the story your own.
