Remember when rock ‘n roll was fun, before all the shoe-gazing, skinny-jeans-wearing bands started to take it too seriously? Armed with an arsenal of energetic, sexually-charged power-pop tunes, The Orion Experience is bent on making sure you do too.

Biography

“The song is named ‘Obsessed with You’ and we’re obsessed with it,” writes celebrity blogger Perez Hilton when describing his newfound attachment to The Orion Experience. Not an uncommon sentiment felt by those who have crossed their path, danced to their beats, and screamed out their words.

“Nothing can make me smile instantly like yalls music,” comments myspacer Stefanie (<3), when describing her emotional ties to the New York groups edgy dance pop sound. And in an age when opinions matter and everyone has a voice, the message is very clear: This band is straight fun.

Front-man Orion Simprini has been diligent and precise in the quest to bring his ideas and music to the world. In 2005, the journey began with the collaboration of longtime friend and schoolmate Linda Horwatt, whom Orion shares vocal duties, harmonies, hand claps and smiles. The two spent several years, on both coasts, honing their craft, recording music and formulating a vision. And with the recent additions of guitarist Reef, drummer Jon Weber and bassist Chris Lucas, that vision has been fully realized.

“What we try to create,” Orion says, “are very positive, high energy musical experiences.” And with their debut, Cosmicandy (2007), the band delivers exactly that. “The songs from Cosmicandy really drove us to where we are today,” explains Orion. The rock quintet boasts a collection musical resumes that aim to revive a bit of the past, and paint a smile on the face of the future.

The Orion Experience will be bringing a fresh batch of songs from the recording studio…..stay tuned!

Obsessed With You

Written By: The Orion Experience

Obsessed With You

I’ve got your picture on my wall.
I dream about you when I sleep.
I go out of my way, everyday, just hoping that
I’ll catch you walking down your street.
I know just where you went to school.
I know the names of all your friends.
Oh God I’ve got it bad again,
an O-B-S-E-S-S-I-O-N.
I know your middle name.
I’ve got a lock of your hair.
I’m just a little bit insane,
cause I think I see you everywhere.
My friends, they just don’t understand.
They cannot see my point of view.
They say it’s gotten out of hand,
That I’m obsessed with you.

I want to get next to you.
Yeah I love all the things you do.
I want to get close to you.
You are my dream come true.
I want to have sex with you.
Your sweet caress won’t do.
Cause I’m obsessed with you.
Yeah I’m obsessed with you.

Your smile sets my heart aflame.
Electrocute me with your eyes.
The very mention of your name,
My stomach fills with butterflies.
Your love is better than cocaine
I need you more than oxygen.
Oh God I’ve got it bad again,
an O-B-S-E-S-S-I-O-N.
I know your middle name.
I’ve got a lock of your hair.
I’m just a little bit insane,
cause I think I see you everywhere.
My friends, they just don’t understand.
They cannot see my point of view.
They say it’s gotten out of hand,
and I’m obsessed with you.

I want to get next to you.
Yeah I love all the things you do.
I want to get close to you.
You are my dream come true.
I want to have sex with you.
Your sweet caress won’t do.
Cause I’m obsessed with you.
Yeah I’m obsessed with you.

You and me, we were meant to be.
We live happily in my fantasy.
We go walking down the aisle,
Yeah you look at me and smile.
My alarm clock rings, I wake up in denial.

I want to get next to you.
Yeah I love all the things you do.
I want to get close to you.
You are my dream come true.
I want to have sex with you.
Your sweet caress won’t do.
Cause I’m obsessed with you.
Yeah I’m obsessed with you.
