My iPod #481: Orson – Happiness

Never was into Orson that much. The band somehow got to number one with “No Tomorrow” back in 2006, which to me is still one of the most random chart toppers this country’s had, released an album in the same year that I guess people cared for a bit due to the success the single got, followed it up the next year with another that people didn’t care for as much and then split up because of it. The group’s existence was a bit strange.

Though the group didn’t make my kind of music, I did enjoy “Happiness” a lot. Still do. The track was released as the third single from Orson’s debut album “Bright Idea“; it just about got into the top thirty when it came out continuing a trend of a steady slide down the charts whenever they released a new single which is quite disappointing. I do consider it to be a much better track than “No Tomorrow”, not that I think it should be a number hit or anything, but it just because it’s a lot more modest. It gets its message out without being too full on. A mid-tempo feel good pop-rock track about the happiness (that happens?) when the one you love is around.
