Song Of The Week: 4/3/11

Song: "Time Flies"

Artist: Puddle Of Mudd

Album: "Life On Display"

Year: 2003

This song appears to be about knowing that there is not much time left in your life and really stressing about it because there is so much left you want to do and you desperately aren't ready to die. Puddle Of Mudd was a band officially as far back as 1992. They would release two independent albums with very little success to the point where ultimately the band would break up. One of their albums found it's way to Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst who liked what he heard from the band. When Durst got in contact with Puddle Of Mudd lead singer Wes Scantlin, he was disappointed to find out that the band was no longer. Durst, however, convinced Scantlin to reform the band albeit with new members. The results were the band's major label debut, "Come Clean" which turned out to be a major success thanks to the hit singles "Control" and "Blurry". Puddle Of Mudd followed up the success of their debut album with 2003's "Life On Display". This would begin a trend of somewhat disappointing record sales for the band. They would release two more studio albums by 2009 with moderate success. Though the band did not totally fall off the map, they never achieved the success that their debut album would garner them. Their singles would, however, continue to receive radio play thus keeping the band in the conversation. In 2010, the band would release their first "best of" collection titled "Icon". Currently, Wes Scantlin has confirmed the Puddle Of Mudd should have a new record out by the end of 2011.
