Someone Say Something

feature-cover-someone-say-something.jpg

Live from bassist Stephen Lemos’ kitchen, New Jersey rock band Someone Say Something has plenty to chat about on speaker phone with band members Tim Sussman (Vocals), Marco Colasacco (Keyboard), Carlo Colasacco (Guitar) and Ryan Harte (Drums). Not many bands get to perform at the Bamboozle Festival only a few months after starting their band, but for Someone Say Something, it’s all history now. After playing a few festivals, the band released their self-titled EP. Since then, touring has gone well for the band. They shared some of their favorite moments, including playing on the same stage as Journey in Daytona Beach.

“Playing outdoors was great, it was like an ampitheater. And we played in the same place as Journey,” explained Lemos, “so we covered the song ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ 20 years later.”

This moment of awe for the greats in music relates to their humble beginnings and rock influences. Though the band met through mutual friends in college, the inception of the band’s name occurred when Colassaco and Lemos performed at a talent show together. When asked the name of their act, they weren’t sure, “Someone Say Something,” was the response that stuck. “I guess we like to just get together and play when we can,” said Sussman. The band has many influences from modern tastemakers like Blink-182, Green Day and The Offspring — to classic figures in rock like Queen, The Beatles and Led Zepplin.

Songs like “Because of You,” come from more personal perspectives. “The inspiration was a breakup, but not in a bad or full positive way,” explained Colassaco. When asked about their performances the band agreed on their single as one of their favorites. “‘Because of You’” is probably the most catchy,” said Sussman of his favorite song to perform, “It’s probably the most powerful. It goes over well live.” To catch this song and more check out the band below on Hear It Now.

Lyrics for "Because of You"

Written by: Carlo Colasacco
Published by Say Nothing Music (BMI)

It's nine o' clock on a friday night.
Instead of getting drunk we're in a fight.
Hoping real soon ill see that summer light.
Instead of going out with all my friends
I end up watching movies like the Notebook and Rent.
Praying that this boring night will soon just end.
And I cant take living my life this way anymore.
Thats for sure.

Because of you I see living my life this way is all that I can be.
Just set me free.
When its just you and me its alright till i am unable to breath.
Just set me free.

Three weeks later and im on my own.
She still keeps calling on the telephone.
Leaving me messages with that angry tone.
Down the shore is where I want to be.
Hanging on the beach till half past three.
Taking down numbers from every girl I meet.
Now im loving every moment of this life.
I found the light.

Because of you I see living my life this way is all that I can be.
Just set me free.
When its just you and me its alright till i am unable to breath.
Just set me free.

Because of you I see living my life this way is all that I can be.
Just set me free.

Because of you I see living my life this way is all that I can be.
Just set me free.
When its just you and me its alright till i am unable to breath.
Just set me free.

All that I can be.

Shaking cold but sweaty.
I swing my arms they're heavy.
A dying giraffe with scurvy.
Drinking coca cola slurpees.
What just happen I am so lost.
I could of sworn I turned the TV off.

Hey little man what you doing here oh
Hey little man leave me alone.
But if my thoughts are right.
I'll be smiling tonight.
Hey little man
Your alright

Beautiful girls all around me.
Washing my brand new Ferrari.
Rock and roll and candy.
Now im just so happy.
Steal some bikes let's wheelie tonight.

Hey little man what you doing here oh
Hey little man leave me alone.
But if my thoughts are right.
I'll be smiling tonight.
Hey little man
Your alright
Hey little man
your alright

Hey little man (hey little man) what you doing here oh
Hey little man leave me alone.
But if my thoughts are right. (but if my thoughts are right)
I'll be smiling tonight. (ill be smiling)
Hey little man
Your alright
Hey little man
Your alright

Lyrics for "Let The Games Begin"

Written by: Carlo Colasacco
Published by Say Nothing Music (BMI)

Once again I found myself caught up in that mess that I love to begin.
They always throw at you that classic line. You just laugh and know that everything's fine.
Just friends (just friends)
thats what they say to you over and over again.
Just keep on trucking you know its coming. Its time to let the games begin.

Let the games begin.
Take them home for the win.
Stay focused and don't give in.
Let the games begin.
Take them home for the win.
Stay focused and don't give in.

The weekend's here and we're just hanging out.
We've got nothing to worry about.
Then comes that awful call and you try to stall.
But you know it's just not working at all.
Not this! (not this) thats what you say to it over and over again.
You know they're on to you but you wont give up.
Till they tell you that they have always new.

Let the games begin.
Take them home for the win.
Stay focused and don't give in.
Let the games begin.
Take them home for the win.
Stay focused and don't give in.

Let the games begin.
Take them home for the win.
Stay focused and don't give in.
Let the games begin.
Take them home for the win.
Stay focused and don't give in.

Let the games begin.
Take them home for the win.
Stay focused and don't give in.
Let the games begin.
Take them home for the win.
Stay focused and don't give in.
