The 5 O’clock Shadow: Tuesday October 20, 2020
The original songwriter is Australian and his stage name is synonymous with happiness.
The Shadow artist’s name is a gender-flipped play on the polygamy term, sister wives.
The song was inspired by an encounter with a girl. The songwriter recalled, “Around the time I wrote the song I met this girl. I asked her what she did and she was like ‘I’m a magician’s assistant.’ I didn’t really know where to go from there. I bet she never gets tired of laying that line on people.”
