Ultimate Classic Rock has a stream of The Bird And The Bee‘s take on Van Halen’s “Panama.” The site writes that the band didn’t take “a faithful approach” to the track, which they reappropriated in a “synth-driven” manner. According to the band’s Inara George, “You really know when a song was embedded in your brain at a young age. I had always assumed that ‘Panama’ was about the Panama Canal? Is it because I was studying that at school at the time the song came out? It’s possible. So, imagine my surprise when Greg and I started working on the song and I started learning the lyrics. The song is about a car and a girl! Duh!”
