Hey everyone, and welcome to songs gone wrong, where we, along with you, the fans, decide if these hit songs got it right or did those songs go wrong? I one of your host drew Zachman, and joining me today is the wonderful yet mysterious bock Tonius Bach. How are you doing today, sir? Mysterious now? Yeah, a little, a little bit, maybe. No, how about legendary? There we go. What you see is what you get, my friend, I am Bro I am doing very well. I'm starting to get back into shape, like you motivated me that last time we talked. You got in your getting rid of the dad bod brother. All Right, team work, man, that's what we do. We motivate and encourage each other exactly. That's good. That's good. The weathers getting warmer out, you know. So it's nice to get some see some sunlight out here, because we all live in the east. I know our listeners are all over the world, but where we live, in the eastern part of the United States, it's been a pretty miserable winter, I would say, for for multiple reasons. But now it's starting to get nicer out hitting. You know, sixty degrees Fahrenheit so definitely looking forwards to getting some vitamin D yes the proper way you bought with Sunscreen, because you know, when you get to that point where you're outside, you're doing some yard work, you're getting stuff done, and then it's three o'clock and then you're like, Oh snap, what did I forget? You forgot sunscreen. Yeah, and then when you take off your share, when you go to the beach and you know, in a couple weeks, yeah, you look like what farmers Tan. Right, that's right, that's right. It's all good, I believe. You know what happened, Bro. I do a lot of things outside the summer and I don't wear the sun screen, you know, and I started looking myself and pictures. I'm like, Oh my God, I'm starting to get I am starting to get wrinkles. Man. Oh yeah, we, I mean we use sunscreens like are going outside, like if we go outside, we can't just go outside for five minutes, because the whole process for us to get our girls, you know, sunscreened up. It's seriously. It may it's gotten better over the years, but holy Geez, like the first couple years just like trying to get just getting sunscreen on their face would take like it would be like a head. That's like a half hour process just to get them out the door. And I'm a go outside for five minutes and like I'm going to go back inside. I'm like no, we're staying outside. I don't care. It took me. I thought it was this idea. What if there was a shirt that's someone they put, you could put on for kids and has sunscreen already in and it makes it tight and just it's every crevice of their face when they...

...put it on. Oh my God, it would work. What about like a like a maybe like a facial mask? I get it always gets in their eye and then all of a sudden it's like correct. It's like twenty, thirty minutes of them blaming you that you put sunscreen in their eye, like we're trying to kill yeah, I know that what you gonna Sunscreen, but you need it. And knee I were. I'm like we need to stock up on that stuff because we like, we like spending time outside, you know, and so of the kid and I are you like a SPF fifty guy? What are you like? Oh, dude, I'm like, I would wear like a Hoodie. I got like a Tshirt Hoodie. That's how I roll because like for his one, I'm not. I honestly hate wearing sunscreen. I put it on, okay, okay, but I me. Yeah, I mean if I when I do put it on, I'm like SPF, like six thousand. Gotcha. I do not do not care about getting Tan. I got you. I got you. What are you? You know what? Over the eye Tan pretty well, so we're not talking about like I get really, really dark, just T and decently right. I put on I don't care to get a Tan. It doesn't it's not my thing, but I do get Tan. So I do go pretty much fifty too, you know, thirty easy. I just don't. I don't like that feeling. I trust me. I've been there when I was a macho kid in my s and I'm out there in the beach all day long with no sunscreen and then all of a sudden I get home and I need allow all over me. Oh yeah, and it's not even it's not even the burn, Dude. It's not even the burn. It's the two days after that. You're about to feel like you a chicken pox for a you know, like the worst case of chicken pop. It's just so bad. You get yeah, your body is like if you feel like you're hot. Yeah, just now, you get cooked. Man, you get cooked, is what it is. Yeah, it's not good. And then end the peeling. Oh Yeah, I'm I had Ms. Oh my God, I'm. We get older and I don't even know these stories of peeling anymore because we're smarter. Right, as you get older, you get smarter. I don't Paul. Hopefully, maybe not everybody, but yes, in theory, yes, you should get older, or should get you should get wiser as you get older. Yeah, okay, we can go on tangents about SPF Sun Burns, but we have a we have a show to provide the people. We do. And then, but make sure you, guys, two to next week to sunscreens gone wrong, as we talk about the differences between SPF thirty, fifty and one hundred and proper application methods for putting sunscreen on your children.

This is a this is a pretty goods classic song. Here, I think, Boch, we're talking about popular from not a serf. Also, before I get going, I want to give a quick shot at to one of our loyal listeners, Mr Irish Keith. I was talking to Keith over twitter and he was saying he's working seventeen hour days, which is insane, not having a lot of time off either. So, Keith, stay strong. Buddy pre sho, you listening to us and hopefully you get some much deserved vacation time. Buddy. Now popular, which was off the album high low, which came out in one thousand nine hundred and ninety six. Now the writers of the Song Matthew Cause, Daniel Lorca and Gloria winters, now calls and Lorca. They're members of not a serf. But as for winters, at the time of this song's release in one thousand nine hundred and ninety six, winters was sixty five years old. So how the heck does she fit into all this? Well, winters wrote a book called Penny's guide to teenage charm and popularity in one thousand nine hundred and sixty four, which was an etiquette book aimed at young girls. So well, well, dig into the lyrics a bit, but you probably know we're going with this already. But yeah, I had no idea that's what that's where they pulled all that stuff from. But Yeah, who know? Also, the song was produced by Rick a costack. So he said he's a legend. I love the cars. Oh Wow, I didn't know that. Yep, so, Buck, what are? What are your some of your memories of this? Not a Surf Popular Song? All right, so one thousand nine hundred and ninety six, when this came out, I remember like all right, this is something different, you know, it's a message to kind of my youth, like I'm in high school and kind of in this thing. I just thought it was kind of like a funny little song about, you know, giving sarcastic advice to me, you know, like yeah, and I didn't think much of the song. I thought it was pretty cool and you know,...

...there's a couple catch phrases with the you know, when you see Johnny the whole way. You know, I'm just like this funny stuff. It's like like half the people in the video or paying attention and it's only resonating on a couple people. That what what he's actually proposing or what he's saying to his audience. It's something that they should do and it just it's just a funny way to explain, you know, high school and the little problems we have to go through and just breaking up with somebody is something that that needs to be explained like that, which is it's just funny. It's just a funny song. I have a lot of I don't I wouldn't say I have a lot of memories of it because, you know why, it's one of those songs that just never kind of was replayed after that. It wasn't like on any kind of like a hit like serious or any like those kinds of stations. Sor would have you just not been replaced. So when when you ask me to listen up, I was like what song is this? And I'm like Ah, okay, okay, I remember that. So it's one of those like it just it was like said it, forget it, but it what you remember about a lot about it when you when you listen to it. So it just one of those it's like those time capsules. Yet you have right. Yeah, Oh, yeah, yeah, this is definitely a time capsule song, for sure. Oh Yeah, for sure. Yeah, this one definitely takes you back to the S, I think, as those the whole album, I think I got what. We'll talk about the album in a little bit, but yeah, I mean I for me, I remember when this song came out. At that time, though, I was into heavier stuff. I think at this point I was like super into fear factory, a lot of the heavier, you know, industrial metal. I was listening to it the time and I wasn't the biggest fan of this song when it came out, but I feel like it has grown on me over the years. Sure, yeah, quick tippitt. The video was shot at bay own High School in New Jersey. Couldn't where. They also shot Mariah Carey's some day and Pearl Jams Jeremy. So a little little trivia there for you kids. Wow. And also, I think the one thing that kind of turned me all from the song, at least at the time, that opening riff. Right. It reminded me a lot of Marilyn Manson's sweet dreams, like the cover they did of the rhythmic song. Okay, I think the kind of pushed me away from this song just kind of due to that similarity. I was like, come on, guys, yeah'll come up with something original and different. I think from what they said, though, they actually kind of got that idea for that riff, more so from Sonic Youth, I think so. But still got it. I think the beginning of the song kind of give you that. You know, that Weezer sweater song. Kind of odd to it too, you know a little bit. Yeah, absolutely, Yep, but that songs a classic. and Oh that the blue album is. That's great, we'SAR that another pedestal. Sorry,...

...guys. Yeah, just just it's all of it now popular. It's maybe not that popular on spotify. It's been streamed over eighteen million times, so it's not terrible, but I mean, I think compared to some of the other songs we've done, which I think, Bachas goes to your point, you know this song, you know kind of got. It's kind of been forgotten, I think. You know, for only being streamed over eighteen million times. You know, a lot of other, you know, kind of one hit wonders, so to speak. They've had some of their song streamed, you know, almost, you know, a hundred million times and this one's only eighteen million, and not a surf. They have over five hundred and twelvezero monthly listeners on spotify. So I mean it's a decent following, but not, you know, anything massive or anything like that. Now, the song reached number eleven on the US billboard modern rock tracks chart back in July of one thousand nine hundred and ninety six, and the song was never released as a single, which is actually part of the criteria to make a song eligible for the US billboard hot one hundred. Had they done that, it, I feel like a probably would have cracked the top forty, but because it was never released as an actual single, it was not eligible to be on the US billboard hot one hundred. So got you. There you have it. Yeah, Iceland had it as as a number one hit though. Correct. Yes, they're, they're, they're big over there, man. All right, so so this is considered a one hit wonder. Correct. Well, I technically. I mean if you just, if Youse, ask somebody and say, are these guys. I want hit wondered. They will say yes, but if you get to like the technical definition, no, because the song was not released as a single. But yeah, I mean in theory. Okay, if you ask like yes, so popular from this song, not question for fucking from potter. I got a question for you. Shoot, there's one hit wonders out there and you boker. You bought their album after listen to that's what really what artist are band surprised you having just one hit wonder, and but you liked or loved all their songs. That could they could have been one like really good hits. What what do you think? I hate to put you on the spot. That's fine, that's fine. There's I mean so there's a couple, right. So if we go by the actual definition of a one hit wonder, right, you only have one song crack the top forty of the US billboard, hot one hundred, because that's what the actual definitions of a one hit wonder. I mean bands like faith, no more, candlebox, blind melon filter and sigone kick. They're technically considered one hit wonders. Yeah, and I love all of them. I mean faith, Momre is, I mean angel does that whole album is so damn good. So's the real thing. Blind melon is great filter. I love taking them. So their one hit was take my picture. But that whole album, title of record, which came out in one thousand nine hundred and ninety nine, is so for a and good. I absolutely love that album. So I go on kick. I love Sigon kick. Their one hit, that a crack the top forty was...

...love is on the way. I'm I'm trying to get Jason Bieler on the show one of these days. I'll get them on. Okay, he's the guitarist and songwriter for that. But yeah, there mean that album, the lizard is so good. But other bands, like, if you like, if you ask, like some random and candle box, there's that whole album is so good. But if you look at some other bands, right, the verve is another one. You know, bitter sweet symphony. For me that was really the only song I knew at the time when I got their album, and then when I listen to the rest of the album, I was like, holy Geez, these guys are fantastic. And then and then you have Richard Ashcroft's, you know, solo stuff is also good. So I would say, you know, based on that the verve. Also, we did a couple episodes earlier on. Right said Fred and crash test dummies. Those albums aren't that bad. I kind of I was kind of digging right, said Fred Man, I really was, and crash just dummies. I was liking them too. But so, yeah, I would say, oh, those, I would say fit, like I said, like faith, the work candlebox, blind melon filter, segon kick. I'll leave those out because they are they're fantastic. I love them, but just kind of going by if you would ask anybody, oh, these goes a one hit wonder. I feel like the verb would be the my answer here. got. But how about you, man, how about you? What's it? Did you say Sony wonders that you like more? I did not. Is that? Is that the they were all o. They were all like eighteen, nineteen year old kids. Remember that? Next maybe even younger to be honestly, from Australia. Yeah, that those guys. This guy's I have a like a running joke with a coup of my friends of like when they're gonna make it big, they're they up and coming. I just I always sometimes it's the Association of them being one tho, seventeen, eighteen. They're always going to be that age in my head because that's the only thing he came out. God, remember that Little Frog on the Oh yeah, yeah, that song. Tomorrow's fantastic, excellent. They get they get put into that grunge category a lot, I feel me they have that kind of like, you know, grungy sound to them, that that kind of like deep hard rock. So yeah, they're they're a good bands. I can I give him credit, for sure, but these guys not not a Surf I mean, at the end of the day, they came up with this and it was not even really their idea. It was the rifts good and everything. You know, it's a fun song, but at the end of the day they end up just being like a cover band, right, they became yeah, not nice, so think. So. Well, so here's the thing, right. So they release this album, right, Hilo, and then after that, I forget what your was a ninety eight or ninety nine, they presented an album to their label and the labels like and now we don't like it. So like they kind of so they I mean Hilo was there, their first album, and then they had another I'm come out. It was ninety eight eventually did come out. That is called the proximity effect, but I think that was over into UK and they had a couple albums come out after that and like they're early to mid two thousands. But and...

...they actually put one out in two thousand and twenty as well, so they're they've been putting out some stuff, but I mean it's I feel like people still don't know who they are. They had, you know, they kind of had that hot song in the mid S and then, at least in the US, when that record labels like we're not going to put this out here, I think they kind of lost some of their momentum a bit. Yeah, I'm just curious just like having one hit. What what does it get you for the rest of your life, just being a band? Like what's so these guys dollar figured you, you know? I well, I mean they can't hurt I. So I saw a note from not a surf or somebody asking that question and they were like you know what, that's fine, you know, because that one song really, you know, opened this up to a lot of other fans and listeners. So if they didn't have that song maybe they would not have even gotten anywhere near, you know, those those five hundred, twelve thou monthly listeners on spotify. You know, but you know, but they have the one hit that kind of opened them up to a whole new audience. I mean I guess depends who you ask, because some of them might be like, I'm so tired of playing this song. But at the same time, you know that one song is, you know, probably bought you a house, maybe a car, great and an amazing couple cars. Yeah, capitalism. When we when we went to go see I mean who doing the blowfish? Have had, you know, a couple hits, but when we saw them, everybody was like standing. I talked to us like a couple episodes ago actually, but Darius rocker was like looking out in the crowd. He sees everybody standing and he looks in the front row and he goes, everybody in this arena is standing except my daughter. His daughter was like sitting in the front row and he goes, this song put you through college. So and that was and that was only one. To be with you, which is probably their biggest hit. I guess you could say are definitely the most popular one, but I mean that was funny. Yeah, I mean that one song, you know, definitely paid for a lot of stuff for them. So then, you know, how does this song kind of compared to the rest of the album? I mean, obviously I think it stands out due to the that's spoken word, but it's you know what, it's a decent album, you know, and you and you just asked me. You know what are some you know, bands or like one hit wonders that you think? Or better than that, I would put these guys in there because I really like a couple songs on this album. There's a song the plan. It almost sounds like an offspring ish kind of like musically in the verse. Stalemates a cool tune. Hollywood's a decent track to I really like Zen Brain. It's not a bad album. Like it sounds like a mid s alternative rock album, and that's fine. I would I would definitely recommend it. I would say, you know, people check out high low. It's not long either. It's like ten songs and I think a clock's in that just under thirty seven minutes. And this is like a big reason why we do this show, right to check out new music, to keep pushing forward Bach and try new things. You know, too often US old folks get stuck rots. It happened. Yeah, and it happened. I know. We just put on our our hits and our hey, Alexa play credence, and she's probably listening to me right now, you know. And Yeah, it's the same. It's the same...

...shit, because, I don't know, you listen to ten getting a Rut? Huh? Let me listen to ten hey for the like five million time. But we got to talk about this. Another show about ten. Oh my God, that's probably the best album ever made. Yeah, it's up there. Yeah, yeah, and so I've never actually listened to this album. And so now, okay, and there's a there's about like five or six songs I really liked on here. So I what I should do? I feel like I might have mentioned before, I feel like I should make a playlist based on songs I discovered and liked because of just like doing the research from this show. I feel like that would be a decent body I playlist for people. That would be awesome for me. All right. I mean, well, then we'll get crashing on it. I'm being selfish now because, okay, I'll never forget. There's this Guy Don Melvine from from middle school. He had access to everything. I guess he was just a really he made me a CD. No, maybe what was it? Was it a good set? Now you got a mixtape. Watch out. Well, he had he had iced tea, he had he just had, you know, he had bad mode of finger on there, man, like that's how wow, like he had stuff like like stuff that was isn't listening to? You know, I was into the Motley crew at the time and all this stuff. Like you just got me really into listening to different stuff and it was great and and thanks my boy dawn Nice. Yeah, no, yeah, it's always good to have like a friend that really, you know, introduces you to new stuff. And guess what, Bok for all of our listeners out there, where your friends, because we're telling you all about this stuff. So yeah, that's that would be a good idea. We should get that good idea. But that lot of us going yeah, but yeah, but lyrically speaking, I mean, what are some of your thoughts on this song, the lyrics of this song? Yes, sir, I I look at the lyrics right now and I feel like I want to talk to my daughter. You know, it's like make sure you're keeping hair smallostically, washing every two weeks. What's every two weeks? And he and they just go. And if you see your mom folding laundry, but you ask her for help. Yeah, ask her if you want to help, Dude. Tell her you want to fold this sire, you want to fold that old don't even get me to Oh my God, fold and socks. Do you have a sock bin? That's all we have now. We just have one place we put socks. That's it for the for our kids, we do. It's like a little pull out, like drawer, thinking it's Im in a drawer. It's like a little Bin, but each girl has their own for their own socks. I wanted to do this. I said, honey, let's throw all our socks, let's get just get rid of them all, just in the garbage and the spy all new sucks, white and black. So when we get them out of the laundry, it's the same damn thing. We see that it doesn't matter what you pair them with.

It doesn't matter what you're paired to one because you got rid of every sock you ever owned and then you bought a thousand dollars worth of socks. I feel like Steve Jobs would be would be agreeable to that based on like how he would like dress himself every day, who were like the same shirt, same pant he would he would have like multiple shirts, but it would be this. It was like as like the same black shirt, perfect, like you like the same like pants, but obviously like different, like multiple pairs, just the same style on everything. So maybe there you go. You're like you like a little Steve John. I can't do that. I got the socks that you know. They're I just love them. You know that. Just can't find the other one. We just got a bunch from Bombas. Oh, they're kind of expense a little bit pricing, but the cool thing is right when you buy a pair you they donate a pair to somebody else doesn't have socks, so that was cool. But yeah, I worn for the first time actually get our day and they are pretty freaking comfortable. So I'm pretty excited about that. But too solid purchase. Got It. To Go back to the lyrics. There's not, I mean, other than given the bad advice to a teenager, I mean on the head of the class, unpopular. I'm a pottern quarterback on popping. I get it. It just it's well, so it's cool. So that was so that the the chorus, is actually the only, I guess, creative of content that not a Surf added to the song, like all the verse. All of that was taken from that book. Just, you know, yeah, just the you were says on heathery class and pope farm a quarterback like that was what they that was their addition to the song. But the song, it's like it's Hilarious, I feel and I feel like, of course, I feel like my favorite is if you see Johnny football here in the hall, tell you played a great game, telling me like this article in the newspaper. I love that. It's so hilarious, so good football. But what I can I see, though, like when you're in, if you're not, well, for me, I was a nerd, so I was not popular. I'll dude, I was a nerd. Bro Besides, I was a nerd. You know you were not a nerd, but deep down, if you knew me, I was a nerd. Well, when we're podcasting now. So yeah, I will say you are a nerd, right. That's why that's what we do. That's what we do. But like, you know, the idea, or if you actually think about the ideas that are presented in this right, you know, you support a one month limit on going steady. Right, like think about it, you know, because you're in high school, like you don't know, you don't know what you're doing. You know, but you get that, you know. I mean, obviously as long as you're not like sleeping around with everybody, you know, but at least if you're like, you know, spending, you know, some quality time with a person for like a month, you get the numb a little bit better. Then you can you know, then you can be like hey, you know what, at the end of the year I, you know, I dated twelve girls and like that. Yeah, and then next you know, it's like, you know what, if you want to, if you want to do it again the following year, you know you can. Or maybe there's like an optout clause where you could be like, you know what I there is one of those twelve girls. So, kind of like the bachelor in a way, I like this one the most. I really feel like I would like to spend more time with her. So you give her the final rows and you know you like her because she...

...was there for the right reasons, and not that I like that. Everything, everything they say about on the bath, like the breakup in high school. Do you ever become friends again? Is it just like yes, yeah, so, I don't know, I don't think she listens, but you remember Rachel? Yeah, yeah, yeah, so we was that. We dated freshman year and we dated for like a month. I'd I'm like, I had done what I was doing. I'm like, Oh, you hold your books for you. My friends would always give me shit because I would always hold their books. I figured like this, no, what goes were supposed to do? Apparently I read some manual from like one thousand nine hundred and fifty three. So apparently someone said you should hold a girl's books when you walk around the whole ways. It's not a it's but then we shake. So she bro I like it, that's it's it's not. You know, looking back and let you know what that was. That was okay. So she dumped me over a letter and she's like hoping we could be friends and we were kind of like cold for a little bit, but we also had like the same kind of group of friends. So maybe like the following year, maybe like two years later, maybe like junior year. We kind of are like over it and we were friends and we're still friends now. I mean like we don't talk like all the time, but you know we're still friends. If we see every hang out, you know, we always have fun, so it can it can happen. Got You. Yeah, I didn't have much. I just kind of met my high school sweetheart. Knows it. See You. You completely opted out of the one month limit. You're like, I'm just we're going to date for the rest of our lives. That's right. You know what it was brought at the end of the day. I enjoyed my high school time. I played sports nonstop, I worried about my academics, I worried about having fun, and then girls. I love girls, don't get me wrong. It just like, I think at the end of time for the junior year and the senior year, going for the Prom, you just start, you know, courting a little bit, and I didn't court really in junior year, but senior year I courted and I wanted to, you know, have a girlfriend for my problem day, and that's what I did and and I made a good decision there you go see it all worked out exactly. So she didn't. So maybe maybe she was like, I don't want to make a flowery and emotional speech when you break the news, and maybe a whole respect you for your frankness. Yes, like that, unless it is a road jerk or a cry baby. But yeah, yeah, no, this song, I mean it's it means it's kind of like, you know, digging at this dirtis like this guide. Basically, it's just kind of like a sarcastic look at this guide, you know, and popularity and everything that goes on in high school in general. So but I mean it's cool song. I liked it. I like it, but I'm all right, buck let's listen into here. So what do you think? Popular by not as served. Do you think this song is a legit hit, or do you think it is a song gone wrong? Man, I'm usually like no, black. I mean I'm never in the gray area, right. I'm going with a song. That's...

...right, they just nailed it. You just just going with the song. I'm going to say it's not going wrong. I think that for that time that was perfect for it. It was they had to get out of their way to make this song have being different and they didn't. They really didn't think this song was going to do anything. Right, they correct and all of a sudden and someone heard it. They're like, you sucked your whole career and then you put this shit together and then all of a sudden you got a hit. And I'm like and we're like, I bet they were like, oh, sure, I don't even know this was going to be popular. We were, we were thinking that this song was going to be more popular, you know, like that's I think this is what. And then they're like, all right, make a video for this, and then like all right, they had no clue this was going to be this is going to be popular. So I haven't listened to it in a long freaking time and I listened to it again. It made me like, okay, this is this is fun, so I'm going to give it a thumbs up. Brother, cool, I'm in. Yeah, I yeah, I'm with I'm with you on that. I think this song is a legit hit. I mean, like I said, back then, I wasn't really that into but feel like it's a definitely has grown on me, and then I appreciate the kind of sarcastic view it has on popularity and it's like how things are looked at in high school. And plus they just kind of looked at this like guide, you know, just kind of like shit all over, which is kind of funny. But but like the things that they pulled out of there were hilarious, great and also like get the song, get rocks, man. You know, I love when they get into the kind of that distorted guitar, those power chords over the mean it's only like what two chords, I think, over the over the chorus, but it's awesome and it's a cool little rock song. I think it's a legit hit awesome. And then it got me to listen to Matt Matthew Stars Fade to you, and I oh my God, that's song and I've it. It was the second it was the second song that they suggested on Youtube and I'm like love that song, but whatever, dude, that song is. First off, it's a total panty dropper, second of all. Second of all, that song, I mean how do you how do you listen to that song and and not get like transported back to one thousand nine hundred and ninety four? Seriously, like it's that song that's not that's not a song. That is magic. Yes, so it really is. I hope Sandy back at a little a little Giddy with this song, listening to that song too. So maybe I haven't that. I haven't heard that song in ten years. Dude, hope the singer, hope sand of all her voice whole. HMM, such an amazing voice. Anyway, okay, we should do we should do that song and then just like drool over that song. It's so good anyway. All right, so we both were. Were both in agreement here, but let's let's see what the fans have to say about this song. US nerds...

...are together on this. Let's see if any see if there's any other nerds out there. Okay, so the fans of spoken, and how this one? This one was pretty close. We've had a lot of close votes lately. Fifty two percent, I mean it doesn't get much closer than that, but fifty two percent said this is a song gone wrong. Yeah, I was. I did not see that coming. I thought people would have said this was a hit. I thought it would have been close. I didn't think it was going to be like that. Much of a nail biter, and I didn't think it was going to be a song gone wrong. I thought it would have been maybe like forty legit hit, but super close vote. They had a lot of votes, so that's what we have. We did get some feedback. A good friend, Irish Keith, at his Meself, you know, said it's a good song. I had to jump on spotify to recall which song it was, though it reminds me of the song and less art by a House Guitar Guy at Ryan the Rusky said this song contains too much truth for some people to handle. Sure, yeah, I agree. Malenza at Melinda Barnett said, wow, I forgot this song existed, so I guess it didn't hold up too well. I did kind of like it back in the day. Wouldn't change the channel station, but I also wouldn't go so far as the pay money to listen to it. Minister Society. At Minister Society, one said I love the song the video to legit hit. Yeah, I agree that the video was pretty cool too. and Tim Kendall at steen candles said I used part of this song for a sociology video. I mean the verses are a bit annoying, but and then the verses are basically just them. You're kind of reading from that book, but I kind of I like the versus too, though. Yeah, that's that's what we got. Nice. If I was doing a band, I know, if I was doing a video, I would love to have, you know, the high school team doing jump in Jackson, the cheerleaders doing you know. I think that would be pretty cool. At Bay Own, absolutely B own too. Well, it has to be at bay own are I guess they have real lenient not student council. What's the the board? Student of school board? They're like yeah, sure, five thousand dollars, six DOS, whatever it is you out. Well, think about it though. Right, that's interesting because right, so, who'd I say? They had mariah carry they had Pearl Jam and and these guys. Right now, it on paper, right, Mariah Carey's like a legendary superstar. Pro Jam legendary superstars, but at that time that was prol jams first album. So people were like kind of don't know who you are. You guys were just called Mookie blaylog not that long ago. Now you're Pearl Jam, like, what's going on? Who are you guys? But they said yes to them and Mariah Carey was a young pop singer back then, you know what I mean. So wasn't like she was established. None of them were established. So the fact that bayone was like hey, guys, come on over, someone in the school board, now someone in the record label. You know, it's something happened like that. There's some kind of connection to have all those happen at one school. That just I want. You know what I...

...want? I want somebody to film a video at art like in our in my backyard. We you know we live. We're not that far from why I'm missing. And Taylor Swift is from why I'm missing. I think she lives like a Nashville now. But you know, Taylor, if you ever want to shoot a video, or anybody for that matter, don't care who you know. We have like three acres back here, so come on down. You know, we have plenty of rooms to set up and shoot a video. I love it. Yeah, I'll bring the beer and the backyard nice. That's it. That's it. Mean anything else going to add? Just just a bro Hug over over the over the voice. You know, that's it. It's all I got for you.
