My Sunday Song – “Do Not Disturb” by Halestorm

For My Sunday Song #239, we are going to talk about the song “Do Not Disturb” by Halestorm. The song is off their current album which is 2018’s ‘Vicious’. The album went to #8 on the Billboard Charts and this song was the 2nd single. It was written by everyone in the band, Lzzy hale, Josh Smith, Joe Hottinger and Arejay Hale.

The song is based on a true story and if you are sheepish about sex, then you might want to stop reading now. There was a night when the band was overseas, Lzzy met another woman and a guy and turned that meeting into a threesome. She figured the band was heading out the next day for another country so why not have a little fun as she would never see them again. The song is extremely suggestive in the lyrics without being dirty or vulgar. Before this song I always wondered what was going on behind a closed hotel door with the “Do Not Disturb” sign on the handle, well, now I know.

Musically, this is really a cool track. The way the guitar riffs, the drum fills and bass line play against each other is great. I like the pacing of the lyrics delivered by Lzzy. There is a really tight groove and the song is a little playful in tone to go along with those tasty lyrics. The song has a sexual tension to it as well and that guitar solo slides in nicely towards the end that seems to be the beginning of the climax of the song. One of the coolest sounding songs the band has ever done.

Give the song a listen and let me know what you think. Do you need a shower after this one? Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a very Happy Sunday.

“Do Not Disturb”

I think we should make out
In a few hours I’m getting on a plane
There’s a pretty safe bet you’ll never see me again, yeah

I love your accent
I wonder what it’ll sound like when you cum
Let’s see if blondes or brunettes are more fun

I’m on the very top floor room 1334
There’s a king size bed but we can do it on the floor
Turn your cellphone off, leave a sign on the door
That says “Do not disturb”

And if I were you I’d bring your girlfriend too
Two is better than one, three is better than two
Leave a sign on the door, the whole night through
That says “Do not disturb”

Let’s take our clothes off
I wanna show you my hidden tattoo
That nobody ever gets to see but you do

Oh baby let me taste ya, shake ya, tie you up and break ya
‘Cause I’ve been alone, left on my own for too long
Oh damn, too long, too long, too long, I say come on now

I’m on the very top floor room 1334
There’s a king size bed but we can do it on the floor
Turn your cellphone off, leave a sign on the door
That says “Do not disturb”

And if I were you I’d bring your girlfriend too
Two is better than one, three is better than two
Leave a sign on the door, the whole night through
That says “Do not disturb”, “Do not disturb”

Turn your cellphone off
I put a sign on the door
Turn all the lights off
I left a sign on the door
Take all your clothes off
There’s a sign on the door
That says “Do not disturb”
“Do not disturb”

I’m on the very top floor room 1334
There’s a king size bed but we can do it on the floor
Turn your cellphone off, leave a sign on the door
That says “Do not disturb”

And if I were you I’d bring your girlfriend too
Two is better than one, three is better than two
Leave a sign on the door, the whole night through
That says “Do not disturb”, “Do not disturb”

Written by Lzzy Hale, Josh Smith, Joe Hottinger and Arejay Hale

    1. A story behind “My Sunday Song”…originally it started out as songs that inspired me and Christian songs I liked, but those songs ran out a long time ago, so it turned in to this. It is always 10 song sets of some theme. For the last 2 years it has been some of my favorite tracks from bands.

  2. I knew a lady that liked Halestorm once. She turned out to be a backstabbing bitch. It’s really prevented me from ever giving them a fair shot!

    I wrote a song about her though, so at least something came out of it. Some of my best lyrics are in that tune.

                1. Believe it or not I did graduate with honors. The highest honor. For my grades, not my behavior. They weren’t about to let me give the commencement address.
