Day 3: Big Time Rush

Day 3 and I am squealing like a fan girl.  Okay, so maybe not so much.  But, I have added another group to my growing list of favorite boy group singers that does NOT include the Jonas Brothers.  What the list DOES include are groups like the Honor Society, Boys Like Girls, and…my recent “addiction” Big Time Rush.  All of them are on my iPod and are amongst my favorites whenever I put my earphones on and drown the world out (emo much?).

Before I go into the usual explanation about the song, let me give a head’s up to the poor souls who do not know a thing about BTR (Big Time Rush).

Big Time Rush is an American pop quartet group created by Nickelodeon Viacom Music and TV Productions, that signed a record deal in 2009, and was made known by the American television series, Big Time Rush.  The band consists of four real-life beast friends: Kendall Schmidt (gotta love that last name, XD), James Maslow, Carlos Pena, Jr., and Logan Henderson.  In 2010, the band was nominated for “Favorite International Band” at the Australian Kids Choice Awards.

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s head to the song.

Today’s song is Big Time Rush’s Big Time Rush which is a part of their album B.T.R (now available on music stores).  I can sum up the song’s message in one line: Never give up, dream big and do everything you can to reach your dreams.  Ah, this is always my favorite theme in songs, books, movies, etcetera, etcetera.  I absolutely love this song (including the rest of BTR’s songs)–the message, the lyrics, the singers, the melody–you name it.  Sadly, there doesn’t seem to be an Official Music Video for this song…*sigh*

Seriously, you guys just have to listen to the song.  I’d even include it to my all-time-favorites like Emily Shakelton’s Dream Big (sung by David Cook also) which also delivers the same message as BTR’s song.

Below’s the lyrics to the song, hope I could at least make some BTR fans out of this, XD.

Oh Oh Oh Oh
oh oh Oooh oh
oh oh Oooh oh

Make it count
Play it straight
Don’t look back, don’t hesitate
When you go Big Time

What you want
What you feel
Never quit and make it real,
When you roll big time!

(Oh o Woah o)
Hey! (Ooh) Hey! (Ooh)
Listen to your heart now
Hey! (Ooh) Hey! (Ooh)
Dont cha feel the rush?
Hey! (Ooh) Hey! (Ooh)
Better take your shot now
Oh, ohhh. (Hey)
Oh, OHH! (Oooh)

[Chorus]
Go and shake it up, what you gotta lose?
Go and make your luck with the life you choose.
If you want it all, lay it on the line.
It’s the only life you got so you gotta live it Big Time

Oh, Oh, Oh, Ooooh
Oh, Oh, Oh, Ooooh

Step it up
Get in gear,
Go for broke,
Make it clear,
Gotta go Big Time

(Ohh–Heeey)

Make it work,
Get it right,
Change the world overnight,
Gotta dream Big Time.

(Ohh-Ohh)

Hey! (Ooh) Hey! (Ooh)
Give it all you got now.
Hey! (Ooh) Hey! (Ooh)
Isn’t it a rush?!
Hey! (Ooh) Hey! (Ooh)
Finish what you start now.

Oh, Ohhh. (Hey)
Oh, OHH!. (Oooh)

[Chorus]
Go on shake it up, what you gotta lose?
Go and make your luck with the life you choose.
(life you choose)
If you want it all, lay it on the line.
It’s the only life you got, so you gotta live it Big Time!

Look around,
Every light is shining now,
Its brighter somehow. (Woah)


Look around,
Nothing’s really as it seems,
Nothing but dreams.

You and I are
Gonna make a brand new sound,
Like we own this town.
(We Own This Town)

We can fly,
Now I’ve made it off the ground,
Never look down.
Welcome to the Big Time.

All the pretty people see you walkin’ in the sunshine,
Welcome to the good times.

Life will never be the same!

[Chorus]
Go on shake it up, what cha gotta lose?
Go and make the luck with the life you choose. (Oooh)
If you want it all, lay it on the line.
It’s the only life you got, so you gotta live it Big Time.

Oh, Oh, Oh, OHH,
Oh, Oh, Oh, OHh

If you want it all, lay it on the line.
It’s the only life you got, so you gotta live it Big Time!!!


There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I'm kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel "Winged: The Awakening" and "Winged: The Unraveling".

    OK, i downloaded the song and properly listened to it (meaning i used earphones instead of regular speakers). Not bad, i’d give it 3 stars (iTunes doesn’t have 3.5). But that’s just me. Cn’t wait to see what’s next on your list.
