Biography

Better Off Blonde is made up of the singing and songwriting duo Shannon Hunt and Lauren Tarantino. Shannon is originally from West Virginia and is a country girl at heart. Lauren, hailing from Northern California, thinks of herself as a pop princess, they are still waiting to see about that one. The girls met while working at The Abbey in West Hollywood, and quickly discovered that not only did they enjoy each others company, but they were a great songwriting pair.Both girls are pumped to be a part of this group and bring out the best in each other. Shannon says Lauren brings out the crazy in her, and she brings out the blonde in Lauren. Their "comedic pop" songs consist of their bad decisions, and yours too. They are happy to self-release their first EP, Black Mail Tapes, at the end of March.

V1
I faked it that’s why I’m not addicted
Yeah I said it, I mean it, I meant it
You’re cheap tricks and your whit isn’t funny
Your big mouth is so carless and clumsy

The silence is heavy you’re speechless
Weighs me down to my knees and we’re hopeless
It’s not real it’s surreal caught you bluffing
I’m a mess you’re a mess and we’ve fallen

Thought you had figured me out
Look who the jokes on now

Chorus
I know that I keep running circles in your head
But all this time you had imagined me instead
To be a fool for you
No matter what you do
You’ll never drag me around cause baby
Look who the jokes on now
You fall for me so easy but
You don’t please me

V2
You’re brilliant you defy gravity
And I’m shallow, I’m shameless, I’m MTV
It’s insane the games that you like to play
Cut me down in your condescending ways

Thought you had figured me out
Look who the jokes on now

Chorus
I know that I keep running circles in your head
But all this time you had imagined me instead
To be a fool for you
No matter what you do
You’ll never drag me around cause baby
Look who the jokes on now

Bridge
You got me
Right where you want me
The lies that keep you strong
Wont help you when I’m gone
Look who the jokes on now

I Switched To Gays

Written By: Better Off Blonde

V1
First I was afraid, I was petrified
That I'd never have another straight man in my life
Then I spent so many nights, thinkin' how they did me wrong
And I grew strong...and I learned how to carry on

I switched to gays
They paved the way
For my life to do a turn around, and turn my skies to grey
My life was filled with men and booze, my ego never was abused
Oh I looked fierce, brought me to tears

V2
My weave it flew, flew in the wind...
Never paid for my honey blonde die jobs again
We went on trips, I got new lips, I even thought about new tits
I switched to Gays...They paved the way

V3
Night after night, day after day
I went out and I looked fabulous and I never had to pay
But how many toys can one girl have, yeah I think it's pretty bad
When you're always on their couch and the 3rd wheel is your name tag

V4
I switched to gays, a full on hag
Just when you think it can't get any worse your dog fits in your bag
Well I'll take what I can get, I'll say it proud when I admit
I switched to gays, I switched to gays

HEY GIRL HEY

Eyes In The Back Of My Head

Written By: Better Off Blonde

VI
Pretty face ...smile so sweet
You hug me every time we meet
keep me close..like a friend...
Cause you think I'll take your man

You're freak, You're unhappy
And You're lying to yourself
Cause if he cheats, it's not with me

Chorus

If I had eyes in the back of my head
see the looks that you give
I could still feel you hating, hating

If I had eyes in the back of my head
I wouldn’t have to pretend like I don’t know
That you’re fakin fakin

I feel ya looking at me
I can hear what you think
It's not true but you still believe
he's falling for me
We sneak around when you sleep
He’s kissing you and thinking of me

Uh oh, uh oh

V2
Here we are back again
still obsessed with me and him
Quick to judge telling everyone
About the Whore that ive become

Don't know how he talks you down
From that ledge where you hangout
Wish he'd give up, or that you jump
Yeah

CHORUS
If I had eyes in the back of my head
see the looks that you give
I could still feel you hating, hating

If I had eyes in the back of my head
I wouldn’t have to pretend that I don’t know
That you’re fakin fakin

I see you looking at me
I can hear what you think
It's not true but you still believe
That he's falling for me
We sneak around when you sleep
He’s kissing you and thinking of me

BRIDGE
Keep on checking his phone, you pretend it's not wrong
You're just lucky it up protected
wanna see who he calls, If it's me after all, but there’s nothing you found

So you follow him home, to make sure that he's faithful won't leave him alone, you call him ungrateful
Maybe you're wrong but there's nothing that you've found

Chorus

Lie To Me

Written By: Better Off Blonde

V1
I remember that fateful night
When we met for the 5th time
Yeah we kissed and it felt so right
I called your name but you couldn’t remember mine
No big deal I think its fine, you’re really cute but not too bright
And im a little wasted
So lets pretend...just lie to me

Chorus
Tell me that you think I'm beautiful
Make me feel like im the only girl in the world
Tell me you and your girlfriend are taking a break
And just lie to me
Tell me you want me to meet your friends
That you cannot wait to make me breakfast in bed
When I show unannounced say you want me to stay
And just lie to me

V2
So upset I missed your text at 3
I would’ve answered but I was asleep
Stayed home waiting up for you
Said you’d come when you got off of work at 2
No big deal I think it's fine
But I know you didn’t work tonight
I got a college degree
And I know when you’re lying to me

Chorus
Tell me that you think I'm beautiful
Make me feel like im the only girl in the world
Tell me you and your girlfriend are taking a break
And just lie to me
Tell me you want me to meet your friends
That you cannot wait to make me breakfast in bed
When I show unannounced say you want me to stay
And just lie to me

BRIDGE
I know, I knowI know, I know
I know just how it might seem
I'm not, I'm not, I'm not, I'm not
I'm not as dumb as you might think
I don’t lie awake at night, wondering where you’ve been
The simple truth wont set you free, I just want one thing

Chorus
