when we were in america last year, there was all kinds of wild stuff happening with the studio that we were supposed to be using (a long story which includes the mafia, fire department, more mafia an breaking and entering). so at the start of our trip we had 2 days to check out new york before we got down to recording our album, 'hey everyone'.
we were in a clothes shop, and the radio was on. the song playing made all of us (we were scattered all around the store) to look up and give lots of "OMFG ARE YOU HEARING THIS?" to each other.
that song was 'fall for you' by secondhand serenade. now, every american who is reading this will know what i'm talking about straight away, but for those of you in europe (who weren't subjected to months of this song everywhere), here's what it sounds like:
in the few weeks after we got obsessed with it - it constantly came on the radio on the drive to the studio, on tv, we downloaded it and got drunk and sung along - its like it was following us.
surely nothing could top that nauseating, autotuned shudderfest?
but one night in the studio we all got drunk and tried (travis from gym class heros even stopped by).
calum wasn't with us at the time so i sung it all, we played it live and you have NO IDEA how many takes it took to do the acoustic 'breakdown' part. some guy was filming it too, but we don't know what happened to it, hopefully that will show up soon - there's pouting and cigarettes and limp bizkit slam dancing.
