"Epic" is a song written by Jonas Jeberg, Redd Stylez, Marlin "Hookman" Bonds, and James Maslow, and performed by Big Time Rush. It was initially released as the b-side of the physical "Music Sounds Better with U" CD single, which was released only in Germany, and later included as a digital bonus track on certain versions of the band's second album, Elevate. The song is also available as part of the Ultimate Fan Edition box set.

Background[]

"Epic" was written and produced during conception of Big Time Rush's second album, Elevate, in June 2011.[3] James Maslow co-wrote the song with Danish songwriter Jonas Jeberg, BMI award-winning writer "Hookman" Marlin Bonds, and producer Alexxis "Redd Stylez" Redd. Lyrically, the track is an upbeat party song, and musically, assumes an electronic sound.

While "Epic" did not make the final track listing for Elevate, it was included on the b-side of the physical "Music Sounds Better with U" single, which was released exclusively in German stores on December 9, 2011.[1] The song was subsequently released as an iTunes digital bonus track for Elevate in Germany and the UK, who did not receive the album for digital download until over two months after its initial release.[5]

Lyrics[]

This one is for the ladies
They looking so amazing
Let's get crazy
Ain't nothing gonna save me
Make this an epic night
Make this an epic night

Turn down the lights, turn up the music
You've been waiting all week to let it out
Your piece of mind, go ahead and lose it
We don't need no gravity, it's going down

This one is for the ladies
They looking so amazing
Let's get crazy
Ain't nothing gonna save me

CHORUS:
Make this an epic night
We 'gon do it right
Our hands up in the air
Make this an epic night
Don't wanna see daylight
My hands up in the air

When that beat go boom, boom, boom
I wanna see you move, move, move, move, move, move, move
When that beat go boom, boom, boom
I wanna see you move, move, move, move, move, move, move

Forever young, party forever
Don't watch the clock, you came to have a good time
If something's wrong, don't make it better
Do what you want, you just gotta live your life

This one is for the ladies
They looking so amazing
Let's get crazy
Ain't nothing gonna save me

CHORUS

Put your problems aside
You've got the right to lose your mind, woah
Get your hands in the sky
And move your body close to mine, woah

This one is for the ladies
They looking so amazing
Let's get crazy
Ain't nothing gonna save me

CHORUS

Our hands up in the air
Make this an epic night
My hands up in the air
Make this an epic night
