BLUE BACKGROUND- Are You Listening (Site)
Here’s some lyrical evidence: “It’s
all starting to sound the same, like everything I say has already been
sung before”. So says Blue
Background, in their song “This Time”, and they couldn’t be more

disc sounds like you’ve heard it before, and didn’t like it so much
the first time, either. Imagine
Sheryl Crowe singing for Hootie and The Blowfish.
This is what happens when the mainstream musical press tells kids
that people like Crowe and Jewel are great songwriters.
This is what happens when kids forget that rock and roll is about
rebellion and sex, and think that it’s only about making money.
This is what happens when somebody’s daddy gives them a boat-load of
money to record, package and distribute a cd.
This is what happens when four teenagers from
dreams, but not much else. – Brian Mosher
