The Band “Atomic Tom” on their iPhones

I know that there are many of you who like to jokingly give me “grief” about my iPhone 4. LOL. I just received this video of “Atomic Tom” (a band I have never heard of) on a Subway train in New York City. Now all I need is 3 more iPhone 4 users and an amp. LOL! The following is the original article.

Brooklyn’s Atomic Tom iPhone It In During Impromptu Subway Jam

“Talk about better living through technology. Riding the New York City subway system just got a little more pleasant–thanks to a Brooklyn buzz band named Atomic Tom that has taken B Train busking to a whole other level with a handful of iPhones and whole lot of ingenuity.

The band recently had their musical instruments stolen, but in a brilliant lemonade-from-lemons move, that didn’t stop them from jamming. And now, ironically, their iPhone-assisted music has garnered them more attention than their regular recordings ever did, as viral footage of them entertaining subway commuters with their iPhones and a battery-powered portable speaker system, playing their single “Take Me Out,” makes it way around the Web.

This here’s a “phoned-in” performance that actually works.”

Just in case someone would like to know what they are singing, here are the lyrics to Atomic Tom’s “Take Me Out.”

If I was bold enough

I would follow you forever

But darling please

Rescue me take me out

Some may say

It’s my fate

Am I just in time

Or am I late

If you can understand


Take me out

I don’t start I don’t end

I don’t change on my own

Take me out

I don’t lose I don’t win

I don’t do well alone

Love is what we make it

Take my heart and break it

Take me out

I don’t want to stay home

You make me dread

You make me sweat

But can you make

Love mean something instead

Something real make me feel


I don’t want to stay here

I don’t wanna live half my life

And disappear

So if you want to take chances

Take a chance on me

Take me out
