"New Favorite" as written by and Mick Ralphs....
New Favorite
They all say it
I'll say it too
You've got a new favorite

You're old standby
Your right hand guy
Is nothing new
You've got a new favorite

Why do you lie about love?
I saw the light go out

And should I go
You won't say so
I know its true
I know you've got a new favorite
I know you've got a new favorite

You've got a new favorite

    General CommentVery, very sad song. I love the tone set by the music itself.

    This song is the final realization that your relationship is over. I think it's about losing not only a lover, but a best friend (old standby, your right-hand guy is nothing new). For most people it's very hard to move on from something like that. Especially when you don't understand the reasons why.

    There are similar themes in many of Krauss' songs (The Lucky One, It Doesn't Matter, That Kind Of Love, etc), but this song captures it the best in my opinion.

    General CommentMakes me think the song is about finally letting go of a habitual cheater:


    You're old standby
    your right hand guy
    is nothing new

    and you're left with the evidence staring you in the face:

    I saw the light go out

    And should I go
    you won't say so
    I know its true
