CD Review: This hot single was submitted from Crystal Top Music as a part of a compilation featuring eleven distinct artists. One of the acts, Elizabeth & The Catapult, hit the commercial target (whether they were trying to or not) with this radio-friendly, hook-filled, avante garde track. It refreshingly covers new subject material with its catchy lyrics about a woman who informs her lover that if he wants a girl to be his mother, he needs to go find another. Elizabeth's powerful vocal performance is enhanced by an avante garde arrangement that's melodically draped over a snazzy, concise, up-tempo production which is sure to resonate with teens and adults. Instant radio hit, just add airplay.

Advice: Get this to radio! All it will take is a couple of spins to catch fire.
