The Mad Dog No Good is back with a new single and we brought the wolfpack. Following the radio-embraced release “Spring” is “Ain’t Never Had A Good Time.” This soul-soaked tale of spontaneous contagious connection features some of our favorite Baltimore artists:
Background vocals by J Pope (J Pope & Funk Friday), Adam Scott-Wakefield (Old Man Brown, also playing smokin’ organ and keys), Jenny Leigh, Janice B, Rufus Roundtree (& Da B’more Brass Factory), Terrelle Scott, and Molly Fitzgibbons all get the party vibe hummin. You might start hummin too.


She was reaching, but she couldn't quite connect.
She was trying, but she didn't quite know how.
They only taught her how to live without a sound.
She didn't know that she could get down.

Her friends dragged her out and a poet opened up.
Spoken words singing music to her feet.
The band started grooving and she jumped out her seat.
A side she can't control was overtaken by the beat.

Come on out, we're having a party.
Come on down and dance with somebody.
People, you ain't never had a good time this good.
A good time this good.

All the boys askin bout the new girl in town
except the one, pretend he don't care.
She spots him over there and waves hello.
She only knows because she's been there.

They start to talkin (and) they start to groovin (and)
they make their way on to the floor.
She whispers in his ear, "Hey, let's get out of here."
It might be rude to tell you more.
