7” of Ecstasy – “You Get What You Give”

By popGeezer | September 24, 2014

New Radicals, ”You Get What You Give”, Universal Music, 1998

Most of the tracks on our ‘7″ of Ecstasy’ playlist so far are, for lack of a better term, “one-hit wonders”.  Obviously, this only adds to the mystique of these singles.  For one brief moment, these artists, writers, players and producers captured pop magic.  For many, long years would then be spent in frustration trying to recapture that one moment in time, that sound of pure perfection.

For Gregg Alexander, the main musicial entity behind the “New Radicals” pseudo-group, he caught this lightning once.  And that was all he needed.  He withdrew from the business of music as an artist, but has continued to work as a writer and producer for other artists, recently contributing to the music in the film Begin Again. If a one-hit wonder needs to go big, or go home, to make an impact, then Alexander launched one into orbit with “You Get What You Give“.

“Give”, the featured centerpiece of the Radicals’ only album “Maybe You’ve Been Brainwashed Too”, is just five minutes of pure power pop dopamine, just an overwhelming sonic pleasure.  A tacked piano leads us to Alexander’s yowling count-off.  John Pierce’s bass and Gary Fergusson’s drums kick into lock-step and drive this happy sound forward.  Co-writer Richard Knowles’ driving acoustic piano is really prominent in the mix and makes a big contribution to both the rhythm and how melodic the song is.  Alexander’s “dime-store Jagger” vocals could be seen as the record’s weakest point, but his vocal enthusiasm and quirky, clever, positive lyrics are actually what take the song to the “next level”.  An exhortation to the kids to live life to the fullest, despite the repression of the adult world, Alexander urges them to “pull through”.  “You’ve got the music in you. Don’t give up.”  The theme of the song is made especially clear by the video for the record, as Alexander and a mass of kids run rampant over a local mall.

The track is also best know for its hip-hoppish set of closing couplets, the final warning to the banal pop world that trouble is coming:

“Fashion shows with Beck and Hanson, Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson.  You’re all fakes, run to your mansions.  Come around, we’ll kick your ass in!”

Stern warning, indeed.  Then we’re back to the chorus and a quick fade out.  5 minutes have passed, there’s a smile on your face, and you’ve just had another rousing encounter with ‘7″ of Ecstasy“!
