Setting: Four teenage lads are currently in the middle of a band practice. All four of the youths have recently purchased OVER IT's brand new release, "Timing Is Everything." A discussion has erupted between the members on how the band needs to improve. We now go to the scene...
Band Member #1: Guys, I really like our band, but man, our songs need to be catchier, like OVER IT.
Band Member #2: OVER IT's songs are catchy, definitely, but they are also very aggressive and energetic...
Band Member #3: The drummer in OVER IT is just awesome - have you noticed how the production on the new album, done of course, by the great Cameron Webb really enhances the percussion backbone?
Band Member #1: Dude, you sound like a freakin' cd reviewer - what the hell?
Band Member #3: I just think the drums sound cool - when we record a cd, I want my drums to sound like that. Layoff man...
Band Member #4: I think we need to improve our lyrics - notice how we have a song that goes "oh baby baby, i need your love tonight?" Well OVER IT pretty much says the same thing, but so much better...like the song "Fall" - where Peter goes, "were our stars dim when we set sight? / or were we too lost in each other's eyes / to ever care at all? / I promise I'd try / I'd sacrifice all my time / If I could fall into you for tonight."
Band Member #2: Did you memorize the whole song?
Band Member #4: Yeah, I guess I did, I just find it to be kinda touching, ya know?
Band Member #3: I know dude, I know...I played it for my mom...
Band Member #2: Dude, that's wrong...
Band Member #1: Hellooooooo...guys, this is still band practice, ya know...for our band, not OVER IT...
Band Member #2: I just can't focus, I keep on singing OVER IT songs in my head, and some of the guitar hooks are huge. And why do all of our songs sound the same? We've written like four of them and I can't even tell them apart...yet OVER IT can write 11 different tunes and they all seem completely original?
Band Member #3: Anyone else here getting depressed? I think it's time to call it a day, and I want to go home and listen to a certain band's cd anyway...
And so the lesson goes, OVER IT probably write better songs than your band, and it's most likely going to make you sad at your own failures. In any rate, for tight, agressive, fast, catchy, hooky, fun, pop-filled goodness, you need to look no farther than "Timing Is Everything."
