You get what you give girl version
Since premiering in February, Big Little Lies has done well to back its soapy murder mystery with a stately soundtrack. The score was largely vintage-rooted, ranging from Leon Bridges' achingly gorgeous "River" to the B52's angst-ridden "Dance This Mess Around," and Monday night's finale proved no exception. But amidst a slew of treasured Elvis tunes, it was the closing song that proved most striking: a breathy, slow-burning rendition of a Rolling Stones classic. The track comes courtesy of Ituana, an enigmatic band with little internet presence.

The University Of Phoenix And “You Get What You Give”…Ugh
Todd: Welcome back to One Hit Wonderland, where we take a look at bands and artists known for only one song. And we are going back to , a magical year as far as I'm concerned. Todd: Technically, it was released right at the end of '98, but I will always associate it with '99, which has taken on this idyllic sheen in my memory.
Rob Thomas. Todd : Just an endless beach party with summer jam after summer jam, delivered in bright, saturated colors. And it might seem more special to me personally, because that was the year I officially started paying attention to pop music after a childhood of cultural isolation. Todd : So when that song, that one song came on, it was like it was speaking to me personally. Todd : Oh I did wake up. At the time, it got lost in the shuffle of a billion other songs I was absorbing for the first time, but the memory has always lingered with me, and that seems to be true for most people.
It was never much of a chart success, it peaked in the early weeks that year just barely inside the top forty. Yet it's one of those songs everyone remembers. And if you don't like this song, I advise you to click away now, 'cause I am just gonna gush over it for the entire time. I think it's one of the best songs of the '90s. It is one of the few songs that can make me dance, and I don't dance.
In fact, it's only grown more and more acclaimed as the years go by. Todd : The Edge said he was jealous of it. Joni Mitchell called it the only song in decades that really excited her. YouTube star Todd in the Shadows called it "one of the best songs of the '90s. Guest : I mean, I think the most pop record I used to really like, uh, was a song by the New Radicals, called, uh, sings Don't, give up Todd : Now that's an endorsement.
And despite its many celebrity fans, I still feel like it's never gotten its due. Todd : If it had been part of some trend or genre like grunge that writers like to mythologize, or if the band had gone on to bigger and better things, maybe it would be near the top of all those "Greatest Ever" lists.
But alone it stands. Well, that's what I exist for. So come, let us reflect on the brief and strange career of New Radicals, who told us all we had a reason to live, but were themselves just too new and too radical to live for very long beyond their single masterpiece. Todd : So once upon a time, there was a Michigan teenager named Gregg Alexander. With two g's. Todd : His first album got zero promotion, 'cause of internal reshuffling in the label, and it's pretty hard to find now.
But most of it got recycled into his second album in , which got a bigger push. Todd : Uh, Mr. Alexander, I really really hope you're not watching this video, 'cause, uh I have to do my duty as an honest critic here and this is pretty bad. Yeah, was one of those years where rock was clearly changing, but it wasn't clear yet into what.
Todd : I'm not sure what Gregg's going for here, 'cause this is a kind of 90's cool that only existed for like half a second. Yeah, sounds like he and his producers took a big swing on the sound of the 90's being.
Todd : I think maybe banking on Gregg Alexander's boyish sex appeal was also a mistake. Like, what if Beck thought he was Jim Morrison. Well now you know. Todd Uh, for what it's worth, I don't think he got sued, I don't think Foghat even noticed. Todd : So yeah, this is all extremely bad, but it's bad in a weird and unexpected way, and you can work with that.
The whole tweaking, and if he wasn't trying so hard to be cool, he could've been the next alt-rock star of the 90's, cuz. Todd : The 90's were about to be very good for weird outsiders. But, 'twas not to be. But it wasn't a total loss. Todd : It was during that album that he worked with a backup singer named Danielle Brisebois. Interviewer: And you're currently seeing this delightful little girl.
Her name is Danielle Brisebois-. Todd : When she reached adulthood, she devoted herself entirely to music. Alexander produced her debut album in and they had some extremely minor success with that.
Todd : And Alexander was still finding work, he sold a couple songs here and there. And then the two of them started a band. Todd : Alexander, Brisebois, and a rotating list of nameless randos. And they gave themselves a laughably pretentious name. MC : Next, one of the acts widely touted to be the next big thing! Though I'm sure that won't stop them.
New Radicals! Then, as always, Billboard's methodology is questionable. I refuse to believe that. Todd : "You Get What You Give" is kinda a unique song, and it's kinda hard for me to put it in context, 'cause there's not really any other songs like it.
But if you look at , it does start to make a kind of sense. Todd : When alt-rock broke through in ish, it seemed like music just wanted to mope all goddamn day. And then all of a sudden, people started cheering up! Todd : Like, what did we have to be unhappy about? The Cold War was over. Nuclear war wasn't looming over us, the economy was good.
So all of a sudden, Smashing Pumpkins were out, Smash Mouth was in. But it all still had that Gen X ironic edge to it. Like, these are all extremely literate songs, there's a lot of words in them, and some of them were actually really clever. Or they're trying to be, even if they aren't. Even a lot of the happy songs feel a little sarcastic, because the 90s generation, they were just too cool. Todd : So "You Get What You Give" is one of the few moments of what I would call "hipster optimism," it's sunny sincerity for the ironic detachment crowd.
Todd : If you just look at the chorus alone, it would seem super corny. But the verses actually make the song a lot saltier than it seems. Todd: But he also has one real insight here: being too good and too smart to buy into the phoniness of the world feels pretty fantastic! Alexander wrote it while he and most people he knew were broke and couchsurfing through life, and when you look at it, there is something awesome and romantic about that. Todd: Like, mostly what I get from this song is that sense of being in your twenties and having nothing figured out and everything figured out at the same time.
Todd: Nothing can get you down. The future is good even if the present is a mess. Like, so what the world is bullshit? You are still awesome! Todd: It feels like this song could only have been written in the late 90s, when the news of the world was mostly funny, and it didn't seem like we had a lot to worry about.
So that's part of what made the song so resonant, but that's all very late 90s. There's another reason it's lasted, decades after the sunshine of the late 90s flickered and died. And that is This is music for song-writing nerds, just, acts you listen to just to admire the craft. Todd: And that's how I listen to this song too, this is a song for people who love chords, and structures, and hooks.
It is not a repetitive song, and there is not one wasted moment. Alexander says he just kept trying to top himself, and he does. Every time you think the song's out of tricks, it adds a new one. Todd: There's a solo at just the right part, for just the right length of time.
And a little bass lick at just the right moment. Todd: Like, here's the part where you can tell 'cause the song should logically end here, 'cause it's already been going for a while. But then he adds that one part that just puts it over the top. And we gotta talk about it, 'cause that's the part that got him in trouble. Todd: And none of these people are Kim Kardashian or anything, you can't just get away with calling them fakes.
Like, in one line, he managed to piss off. Todd: Hipsters, teeny-boppers, riot grrrls, and goths, that's a wide set of demographics to annoy. Todd: He did eventually apologize to Beck personally.

The 57 best one-hit wonders of all time
July 27, 9 Comments. Now, a cover is being used for this new University of Phoenix commercial. It tells the story of a working adult in who is struggling to juggle traditional college with her job, until she discovers the newly founded University of Phoenix. I get that the University of Phoenix had to obtain permission to use the song, but still. Jesus, the irony. As noted in the comments, the cover is sung by Mack. And the woman is played by Jessica Blackmore.

A better way to phrase it to me: "Without expectation, give what you truly want out into the world, only then, will you get what is meant for you. It's not always a fair trade, but always returned in abundance. Even in the darkest and saddest moments I feel the lure to love.
