You and him, getting more than friendly

I have to do this. I know I wrote about Go:Audio yesterday, but I have to do it again. Last night, when I wasn't itching to bounce around the room listening to this song, I kept feeling compelled to go blog about it while listening to it. I managed to hold off until today, but I have to do it now. I'm going to take down yesterday's download link, but you can listen to it at their MySpace.

Go:Audio - Made Up Stories

I don't want to listen to anything else (I had to follow it up with the Veronicas, but even their bottled fun and power had lost some of its sheen because I was so desperate to get back to listening to "Made Up Stories." The only thing that came close to being able to work as a followup was "Gotta Get Thru This"--that sheer desperation coming through in Daniel Bedingfield's voice, mixed with how amazing the beat is, wasn't able to replace "Made Up Stories," but something about it came so close to my emotional state that it just about worked)! And you know what? I think this could be a U.S. hit! It really could! Maybe not top of the charts success (although it should be), but All-American Rejects-level success at the very least. It makes me want to dance, shout the chorus out loud, jump on a bed, hairbrush sing with lots of dramatic gestures--it is brilliant. Best song on MySpace by someone who hasn't released anything yet? I think so. Maybe even the best song on MySpace. Most exciting song I've heard in a long time.

The only trouble is I keep wanting to sing "the night you've had with your mate at [some random location like "Storrey's"]" instead of "made-up stories." I have not been this excited about a band since I heard the Click Five's album for the first time, and that--for me--is saying something. I'm petrified that I'm going to wear this song out by overplaying it, but I just can't stop.

This--this song and this sort of feeling--is what music is about.

(As for what it sounds like...I don't know...think the Click Five, the All-American Rejects, McFly, and Busted mashed up and with more synths thrown in.)

your last sentence in parenthesis nearly made me expostulate with excitement and glee. What a brillo mash up that is. Now i'm off to have mashed potato for me dinner. I love it when there is synergy in the universe :)

I know! Do you see why I'm so excited? I know this post makes me seem about 12, but I am so excited ("over the moon," shall we say) about this song that I can barely stand it. I mean, everything about it...the superlatives I'm tempted to start using...let's just say some end-of-the-year lists (not that I ever had really official, pinned-down ones), maybe even all-time lists may have been considerably shaken up by this song.

(By the way, Paul, I can't comment on your blog as of now :( Hopefully that'll work itself out soon!)

Sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

You've taken the words right out of my mouth. Excuse me but how AMAZING is this song???

Oh. I have some Anthony Callea Radio Promo CDs that are of no use to me. I figured you may like them my love? Email me if so, that way I can organise postage (hopefully) before xmas...

Indeed, J'ason...and I wanna be dancing, too cool for school, when I'm alone I wanna break the rules...wait...no...And a boy has to become a man...no, that doesn't work either...

It definitely is! ...and yes, I would love them! :) I can't help myself--I think he has potential, though there are some "things he needs to get sorted out," shall we say...I'll e-mail you; thank you!
