"Say Something" - A Great Big World featuring Christina Aguilera I thought this song was whiny and annoying and lacking a conjunction "say something OR I'm giving up on you", and I still do. The reason why I'm making it Song of the Week is because when I went to find out more info about it, I read that Ian Axel is from Fair Lawn and went to Fair Lawn High School. Evidently he released the song in 2011 as a solo artist. Then he joined with a buddy to form the duo, A Great Big World and re-released it. Then Christina Aguilera heard it, and her people called his people, and before you know it they were in L.A. re-recording it again. Proud to see a hometown boy make good. I just hope he doesn't forget that his music talents were forged in the bagel shops and pizza places and on the tree-lined streets of Fair Lawn. "If you forget where you came from, you ain't never gonna get where you're going."
