"Turn It Up, Turn It Over, and We'll Start Again"

I appreciate the Goo Goo Dolls for what all they've contributed to Pop/Alt Rock, but they're not normally the type of music I geek out about and write about. BUT, when a producer like RedOne takes a swing at one of their most recent singles, my interest is piqued. Back in mid-October they released a new track titled Over and Over, which never made its way on my radar, but probably deserves a few more listens. Give the original a quick listen...

So yea, pretty upbeat, inspirational, Coldplay-esque anthem. Needless to say it had all plenty of potential for RedOne and T.I. Jakke to run with. They took the uplifting vocals from the original and make it even more anthem-worthy. The additions to the beat are subtle, but noticeable enough to make a difference. Somehow the duo managed to throw more nostalgia on an already catchy af track. The real questions are: 1) why wasn't this a bigger thing a few months back and 2) will this now get the original the love it deserved. Time will tell, but today I got a little more intimate with the Goo Goo Dolls and I truly did not see that coming...#OverAndOver
