A (completely made up and silly) history of 2CC’s Mike Welsh So, a week is gone, and another one is here

Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week

July 14th, 2008 at 03:46am

This week the award goes to The Veronicas, and the feature song is Hook Me Up. I first heard this song on 2CC when Stuart Bocking played it after interviewing the band…it sounded absolutely awful on AM radio, which struck me as a bit odd because most of the music I like sounds great on AM radio. This song, whilst not one of them, sounds quite good as purchased from iTunes.

It is also nice to find a band who release their music on YouTube and allow embedding of it. It makes my job a lot easier, and works well as a promotional tool for them. If only I could say the same for Universal Music who seem to think that allowing embedding of their music will cause the planet to turn in to a bowl of cereal.

Incidentally, this song sounds better in stereo than it does in mono. The sound on the YouTube video doesn’t quite do it justice.

I’m tired of my life
I feel so in between
I’m sick of all my friends, girls can be so mean
I feel like throwin’ out everything I wear
I’m startin’ over new
Coz I’m not even there

Sometimes (sometimes)
I wanna get away some place
But I don’t wanna stay too long
Sometimes (sometimes)
I wanna brand new day
Try to fit in where I don’t belong

Hooooooooook
Hook me up
I wanna feel the rain in my hair
Hooooooooook
Hook me up
Where should we go I don’t even care
Anywhere is good enough
Hook me up
Hook me up

I like the lights turned out
The sound of closing doors
I’m not like other girls
Who always feel so sure
Of everything they are
Of what they’re gonna be
Sometimes I’m just a girl
Stuck inside of me; of me

Sometimes (sometimes)
I wanna disappear some place
But I don’t wanna stay too long
Sometimes (sometimes)
I’m feelin’ so alone (I’m feelin’ so alone)
Tryin’ to fit in where I don’t belong

Hooooooooook
Hook me up
I wanna feel the rain in my hair
Hooooooooook
Hook me up
Where should we go I don’t even care
Anywhere is good enough
Hook me up
Hook me up
Anywhere is good enough
Hook me up

Their gonna crash and burn
I’m gonna find a way
Nothin’ left to say

Hooooooooook
Hook me up
I wanna feel the rain in my hair
Hooooooooook
Hook me up
Where should we go I don’t even care (I don’t even care)
Hooooooooook
Hook me up
I wanna feel the rain in my hair
Hooooooooook
Hook me up
Where should we go I don’t even care (I don’t even care)

Anywhere is good enough
Hook me up
Hook me up
Hook me up
