Big Time Rush - Til I Forget About You

September 08, 2011 Critic Jonni 0 Comments

I had no idea who Big Time Rush were, I saw this music video, and there was nothing else on the music channels, so today I decided to watch this one, and I've had this annoying song in my head all day. The music video must have sounded great on paper, but personally I don't think it works, it's really weird when that happens, but by the looks of things Big Time Rush need to do a lot better, or soon enough they will be dropped from their label and ceased to exist.

Big Time Rush are a 4-person bubblegum pop band that consists of Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena, Jr. and Logan Henderson. They were created through Nickelodeon television series, which has the same name, which I never watched, although apparently it was a big hit. The series has released 2 seasons so far, with an expected third season on it's way, also the band confirmed that there will be a film released to coincide with the third season. So although the series has been doing really well, the band itself is doing rubbish on the charts, and this song performed particularly badly, as it didn't chart anywhere in the world. I definitely see this band going there own ways, soon enough they will give up with the singing and just do the TV show, which then might perform badly.... That's how I see things going, but I hope they manage to gain success as it is particularly difficult to get a song stuck in my head after only hearing it once.

The song is all about forgetting about the person who's just dumped you, which is kind of a little weird in my opinion. It suggests rebound alert, and that is by no means good. It's all about distracting yourself until you forget about that person, but in theory how do you forget about someone who's been a big part of your life? It just never happens and at the end of the day you'll always remember them no matter what. So I understand what the song is about, but to be honest I don't think I agree with it.

Now if this music video was written down on paper, I bet it sounded like an amazing idea, but I don't really know why the video didn't turn out as great, I'm not exactly sure what it is about it I don't like but something spoiled the whole idea. My favourite bit in the music video is the "Rock Out" button on the camera, and I think that just shows how much I enjoyed the music video because that little thing was my favourite bit. It just seems a little dull, and unrealistic.

I like the idea of how the camera can change people, but in theory that's a little unfair, because they are changing them in a similar way people change because of peer-pressure. Seriously, if they want to look the way they did at the beginning why change them? Everyone's perfect in their own special way, so why turn them into someone they may not be just because of yourself? Okay I must admit, this video goes against a lot of things I believe in, especially about originality.

I have to laugh at the 90's cheesy dance moves that are shown when they are performing on stage, it kind of reminded me of A1 and D-Side and 5ive and *NSYNC. But will they mark the comeback of cheesy pop and hopefully push our now disbanded bands back together? Or will they fail like many of the others? We'll just going to have to wait and see, but personally I'm expecting failure.

Overall, I like the song it's very catchy and is still stuck in my head, but I don't agree with the meaning. I like the concept of the music video, although I don't think the music video works well enough, and it doesn't relate that well with the song. So I am wondering if this ban will make it, or will they become another one people's paved over? Well here's my rating....
