Music Review: "The Google Song" by The Gareth Thomas Band
By Kevin Walton

It’s not often that I have something to say about a particular song or artist, but here is one that has caught my attention. The internet is making big waves in the entertainment industry; first with a new movie coming out soon all about Facebook called “The Social Network” (due for release on 1st October 2010 in the US), and now this – “The Google Song” by The Gareth Thomas Band.

I first heard this song on 91.8 MoreFM this afternoon on my way home from a long day at work. The D.J.’s introduced the song and I thought to myself, “Oh my goodness, here we go!” expecting some kind of weird, comical parody song. I was, however, very pleasantly surprised.

This is a beautiful love song with a catchy melody and a mellow, calming ambiance to it. The lyrics tell the story of a man who enters his name into a Google search engine and finds all these other people who share the same name as him. He refers to them as different versions of himself, but he realises that there is one major difference between him and all these other people; that being that they don’t have “you”, whoever “you” is that the song is being sung to.
One of the nice things about this as a love song is that it has been kept completely generic and can be from anyone to anyone. So if you’re a guy with a special woman in your life, give your local radio station a call and request this song as a dedication to her.
I will definitely be adding this one to my very small, select list of favourites.
