BandPopRock

Socialite Fiasco rock like No Doubt. They bare their souls like Dido and Sarah MacLachlan. They possess the sonic youthfulness of Avril Lavigne and the emotional maturity of Suzanne Vega. Most importantly, lead vocalist Monica Driscoll sings with genuine feelings behind her words.

Biography

In a place where people know more about Paris Hilton than Paris, France… in a time when J-Lo's Grammy dress constitutes a human tragedy… in a land where Range Rovers and Hummers fight tooth and nail for the closest shopping mall parking spot… there exist two fearless rebels, valiantly leading the charge against lip syncing pop princesses, songs without a soul, and poor quality footwear.

Seriously, Socialite Fiasco is a girl (Monica Driscoll) and a guy (Brett Ratner) who just wanna write catchy, melodic pop tunes and play them for you.

It’s not their style to impress by dropping names, citing obscure musical influences or making pointless lists of past accomplishments. So let’s just say that Monica led her past band on a coast-to-coast tour while Brett has paid plenty of dues slugging it out in bars from Nashville to Chicago.

And sure Brett can torch a blues club just as easily as Monica can mesmerize a smoky lounge singing jazz in Portuguese (the language of Brazil, her Mother’s childhood home).

But ultimately, it’s Monica’s gift of seeing her world through song and Brett’s ability to set Monica’s world to music that makes a Socialite Fiasco tune feel like home the first time you set your ears to it.

Haven't Been Around

Haven’t Been Around

V1.
I’m waiting I’m waiting but you’re not coming home
I sit there staring at the phone
So what’s the deal, you say you want me too
So how can I believe you

I watch my watch but time can’t seem to fly
Oh it grows wings when you’re nearby
So what’s the deal you say you love me too
So when will I feel it’s true

Ch.
You and me waited for the right time
Do you think that you could be mine
Hard to say, you just haven’t been around

V2.
I want the world but now my hands feel tied
I won’t let life just pass me by
So what’s the deal you say you want it too
So how can I forgive you

I watch my watch but days just seem to fly
I’ll grow wings and take the sky
So what’s the deal you say you never grew
So how can we continue

Ch.

Br.
What can you tell me
To make this go away
What can you say to me
Take it all away
What else can you tell me
What else can you tell me
What else can you tell me

V3.
I’m waiting I’m waiting but you’re not coming home
I sit there staring at the phone
So what’s the deal, you say you want me too
So how can I believe you

I watch my watch but time can’t seem to fly
Yeah it grows wings when you’re nearby
So what’s the deal you say you love me too
So when will I feel it’s true

Ch.
