Saturdays With Steve: Lizzy Land – Beat Goes On
“And you know that the heart feels better when the beat goes on.”
This line encapsulates the simple theme behind “Beat Goes On” by Lizzy Land. The lyrics convey some fragmented images of losing yourself to music. While not as articulate and evocative as Eminem‘s Lose Yourself, the words do serve the purpose of Lizzy Land’s catchy rhythms.
The delight here lies in the music itself. The hook is infectious, and the track is mixed down with razor-sharp precision. I give many props to Ryan Marshall Lawhon for his work on this track. The harmonies shine and appear in all the right places. I was almost immediately turned off, however, by the cheap audio effects in the beginning of the song. The song begins with a detuned vocal intro that sounds like a desperate attempt to fit the mold of contemporary pop. The song ends similarly, but with unintelligible chipmunk vocals tuned up a few octaves.
All in all, the meat of the song breathes life into this savory meal. Aside from the distracting effects and thematic simplicity, this song may rock your summer.
Recommended for summer fun and gettin’ down.
