Ball of Wax 40 Songs: I Am the Deciders – Brangelina Lives Matter

[Ball of Wax 40, as we’ve mentioned, is a little different. Given the unique nature of each of the bands and songs on this collection, we decided to eschew our usual track-review format for the blog in favor of letting each of the bands speak for themselves about the songs they wrote and recorded in a day. BoW 40 starts in 2005 with Brangelina Lives Matter: Meghan Kessinger, Holly Small, Kevin Suggs, and Jonathan Wooster.]

Things that happened in 2005:

  • Hurricane Katrina
  • Earthquakes in Iran (500 dead) and Japan (many injured)
  • 4 terrorist attacks in London (killing 52, 700 injured)
  • Seahawks lose the Super Bowl
  • Mumbai, India receives 39.17 inches of rain within 24 hours, bringing the city to a halt for over 2 days
  • Bridge stampede in Baghdad kills several hundred civilians
  • Brad Pitt leaves Jennifer Aniston for Angelina Jolie

So, 2005 was mostly a terrible year. It was full of actual horrible things that happened (on a personal level and a global level) and then also stupid pop cultural things that happened (that people may have paid more attention to). We decided to write a song that reflected that.
