Tony Oso – ‘Going Down’
Review by Matt Wong & Staff
“Going Down” is an addictive rock song by Tony Oso. From the first notes, this song screams of rock with lots of energy. Beginning with a partial chorus, with Oso’s intense vocals, the band marks out the downbeats, building up tension. The song then proceeds into the first verse, and a hard hitting rock groove begins.
A full chorus, and another verse and chorus follow, with the arrangement remaining fairly consistent allowing the listener to fully participate and get hooked. The listener then gets a brief break to digest the intensity of the music they just listened to with a bass feature, before the song launches into a face melting guitar solo! One last chorus follows, with the guitar continuing to riff ,driving the song to peak energy.
The lyrics behind “Going Down” were inspired by the people that Oso has witnessed getting heavily into drugs, and seeing their lives go down a dark path. He compares drug addiction with “sinking in the ground” and “falling to the ground”
" You've been going down / Sinking in the ground / You've been down / Not a soul around / Nor a dream is found / You've been bound"
With “Going Down,” Oso wants to remind people to look in the mirror and turn their lives around before it is too late.
“Going down” is a song that embodies the spirit of rock music and a message that it's never too late to turn around. The song’s energy and dynamics, along with its meaningful lyrics provide the listener with an intense listening experience. With "Going Down", Tony Oso shows off both his incredible songwriting talent, and his high level performance ability. In "Going Down" Tony proves that music is the best high.
