Biography

BCC has just been nominated for an Independent Music Award (IMA) for "Best Love song" for the song "When In Rome"!!

Band Called Catch is an alt rock band from Chicago, IL. The dynamic sound you’ll hear when listening to a BCC record is the direct result of a ragtag team of 7 different people from 7 different worlds. In February 2008, amid the sub-zero temperatures of a Chicago winter, BCC was born. Starting as a fun band that played catchy, folk influenced music for nothing more than good times and free beer, their first show was at Bills Blues in Evanston, IL. The show went well and so, the rest is history. Jumps, falls, and a few line-up changes later, and Band Called Catch has transformed into a 7-piece-party-band with a distinct dynamic sound that has gained national notice and acclaim.

The best way to experience BCC is live. Dust off your dancing shoes and come say hello.

Lyrics

Girl Gone Wild

Written By: Tim Frank

***She Said... "You should do anything to be a rock star...
Because I'd do anything to be a porno star..."
She took all of her clothes off for one of those free t-shirts and look at her now, look at her now, look at her now... Her father must be proud.

And he is, while he sits there in his lazy chair. Flippin' through the channels late at night while his cigarette smoke fills the air. Wrote a check for Cancun back in early June. His daughter said, "I love you daddy and I will, see you soon."

***She Said... "You Should do anything to be a rock star...
Because I'd do anything to be a porno star..."
She took all of her clothes of for one of those free t-shirts and look at her now, look at her now, look at her now... Her father must be proud.

Smokin' his dirty cigarette and what does he see? But his own daughter gone wild dancin' topless on the late night TV. Well he, got right up, and he ran to the phone.
He called her up and said: "I know your my daughter, but I'm about to disown!"

***She Said.... "You Should do anything to be a rock star...
Because I'd do anything to be a porno star...."
She took all of her clothes of for one of those free t-shirts and look at her now, look at her now, look at her now.

Look at her now, look at her now, look at her now... Her father must be proud.

Green Light

Written By: Tim Frank

It's the green light. And it's time to go. No you can't stop me because you, well, got to go home. It's the green light. And I'm on my own. It's just another little cut that I have got to get sewn. It's the green light. It's the green light.

Well I called the doctor up he said to come on in. "I see you've got a little problem with the left side of your chin. Well, that's alright, don't put up a fight, you're the last patient that I'm gonna see tonight."

It's the green light. And it's time to go. No you can't stop me because you, well, got to go home. It's the green light. And I'm on my own. It's just another little cut that I have got to get sewn.

It's the hill that never ends. We'll go down and we'll never come back up again. So come on and, come on and ride the break for as long as, as long as you can take.

It's a little old man in a big ol' room, he's got three little balls and a big ol' broom, he said, "Young man, come over to me. I'm gonna show you how to put sweet in tea!"

It's the green light. And it's time to go. No you can't stop me because you, well, got to go home. It's the green light. And I'm on my own. It's just another little cut that I have got to get sewn!

It's the green light! (x4)

For The Sake Of It

Written By: Tim Frank

For the sake of it I’m gonna run around; Run around town with the sound that I think I found.

For the sake of it, for the sake of it

An Eskimo kiss down to my lips; An expiration with me and you in my fingertips.

For the sake of it, for the sake of it

What you want, I got it here;
Let me show you how to catch a tear; Baby don’t have a fear; I’m gonna get there

For the sake of it, for the sake of it.
For the sake of it, I’m never gonna quit.

(Break)
x2

For the sake of it, I’m never gonna quit (x4)

Be an idol go on FOX; Stay at home and watch the Sox; Let tell you baby I got a heart and that’s what makes it rock

Run it dry, add it up, I’ll pay my dues, I won’t shut up; It takes a lot of something that I got and don’t you call it luck.

For the sake of it I’m gonna run around; Run around town with the sound that I think I found.

For the sake of it, for the sake of it. (x2)
For the sake of it, I’m never gonna quit.


Stilll Lovin' Down South

Written By: Tim Frank (Band Called Catch)

Not another shooting star
It made me wonder where you are
It Keeps me wonderin’. Keeps me wonderin

Get angry about a comment on my profile
Show me who you’re textin’ on your outgoing text file
These thought we’ll make you run around so wild
Thinkin’ about your man who’s love still down south.

Still lovin down south
Still lovin down south
Still lovin down south

Sick-it, book it, one way ticket
Too much money just to kick it
Treasure me, I’ll treasure you
Little girls, we’ll have two
Sweet like a honey bun, so worried that I’m gonna run
Squirt with a squirt gun, cold in the hot sun

Still lovin down south
Still lovin down south
Still lovin down south
Still lovin down south
Still lovin down south
Still lovin down south

I can see you on the front porch
Dreamin of a little girl
Who fell in love with a little boy
With these yellow wings and yellow dreams

Can you see me on the front porch?
Dreamin of a little girl who
Fell in love with a little boy
With these yellow wings and yellow dreams

Don’t wanna wait, wanna wait, wanna wait
Wanna wait, wanna wait, wanna wait no more
Don’t wanna wait, wanna wait, wanna wait
Wanna wait, wanna wait, wanna wait no more

Don’t wanna wait, wanna wait, wanna wait
Wanna wait, wanna wait, wanna wait no more
Don’t wanna wait, wanna wait, wanna wait
Wanna wait, wanna wait, wanna wait no more
Laddat Laddat Laddat Laddat Laddat Laddat
