Big Time Rush is the eleventh track on BTR, as well as the title theme of the TV show.

Song information

Big Time Rush was released as the group's first single, followed by Any Kind Of Guy. However, it was the third song by the band to be featured in the show, with two more songs (City Is Ours and Famous) being released later. The song is written in the key of B Minor and is put to an upbeat pop tempo of 120 beats per minute. The song is also shorter than "Any Kind of Guy," and features Kendall or Carlos having more singing parts than James and Logan, although most of the song has all four of them singing.

Episode premise

Four hockey-playing best friends from Minnesota are discovered by a record producer, Gustavo Rocque who give them the opportunity to live it up in Los Angeles to become the next hit-making boy band. Gustavo wanted to sing a song called "Girl Time", but Kendall decided they sing a song they made called "Big Time Rush", and Gustavo approved, and days later, they proceed to perform it for Griffin.

Music video

The music video was shown in the first episode, Big Time Audition, mixed in with shots from the same episode.

Lyrics

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

Make it count, play it straight
Don't look back, don't hesitate
When you go big time
What you want, what you feel
Never quit and make it real
When you roll big time
Hey, oh, hey, oh
Listen to your heart now
Hey, oh, hey, oh
Don't you feel the rush? Hey, oh, hey, oh
Better take a shot now
Oh oh oh oh

Go and shake it up, what you gotta lose?
Go and make your luck with the life you choose
If you want it all lay it on the line
It's the only life you got so you gotta live it big time

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

Step it up, get in gear
Go for broke, make it clear
Gotta go big time
Make it work, get it right
Change the world overnight
Gotta dream big time
Oh woah
Hey, oh, hey, oh
Give it all you got now
Hey, oh, hey, oh
Isn't it a rush
Hey, oh, hey, oh
Finish what you start now
Oh oh oh oh

Go and shake it up, what you gotta lose?
Go and make your luck with the life you choose
If you want it all lay it on the line
It's the only life you got so you gotta live it big time

Look around
Every light is shining now, it's brighter somehow
Look around
Nothing's really as it seems, nothing but dreams
You and I
We're gonna make a brand new sound like we own this town
We can fly
Now our feet are off the ground, never look down
Welcome to the big time
All the pretty people see you walking in the sunshine
Welcome to the good times
Life will never be the same

Go and shake it up, what you gotta lose?
Go and make your luck with the life you choose
If you want it all lay it on the line
It's the only life you got so you gotta live it big time

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
If you want it all lay it on the line
It's the only life you got so you gotta live it big time


Trivia

  • On June 8, 2013 at Universal Orlando, Big Time Rush performed a mash up of their theme song and their song City Is Ours.
