Song Commentary

Get Out from Under

Written by
Becky Baxter / Conal O’Donoghue / Shauna McGarrity / John McNulty 

A song about being different; a song about breaking free; a song about change. 

A straightforward and unapologetic heavy rocking number that opens with a heavy drum beat and a ‘dirty’ distorted guitar line and completed by a guitar solo influenced by 1970’s mysticism. Becky’s vocal is provided in full “rock chick” mode which, some would argue, demonstrates one aspect of her range but does not play to her individual strengths. Be that as it may, the track still has its place in the Riff Diamond catalogue: a song about being different, a song about breaking free and a song about change.

The lyrics address a common universal theme; namely the being brought down by unhappy / unsatisfactory circumstances and the desire to break out and generally “get out from under”. The words also acknowledge that the individual can be partly, or even wholly, responsible for such circumstances through his/her own neuroses and an inclination to panic. There you have it: a song about being different, a song about breaking free and a song about change.
