Good News For People Who Love Bad News
indie indie rock alternative rock Modest Mouse


"Float On" is a single released by indie rock band Modest Mouse. It had also appeared on their album Good News for People Who Love Bad News. The song was written by Dann Gallucci, Eric Judy, and Isaac Brock. Asked about the song in an interview with The A.V. Club, Isaac Brock said that he consciously intended to write something that felt more positive than some of his previous work. The song was released on February 14, 2004 and was the first Modest Mouse song to gain mainstream popularity. Nearly a half year after its release, it became the band's first #1 hit on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. In Australia, the song was ranked #11 on Triple J's Hottest 100 of 2004. In July 2009, it was also voted in at #94 in Triple J's Hottest 100 of All Time. Not only the song, but the music video, featuring computer animation styled after pop-up books, bears a degree of resemblance to the video of Franz Ferdinand's breakthrough single "Take Me Out", which is animated in a similar style, though with different aesthetics. Both songs became popular at around the same time. This song was covered by Australian artist Ben Lee for the 2006 motion picture John Tucker Must Die, and again by indie band Goldspot for the sixth soundtrack of The OC, released on December 5, 2006. This song is also featured in "Weird Al" Yankovic's song "Polkarama!" on the album Straight Outta Lynwood. On March 14, 2007 the song was used in a segment on American Idol that served as an advertisement for the Ford Motor Company. Idol producers later confirmed that the segment was actually based on the Kidz Bop cover of the song. This song is featured in the 2009 movie "Hit And Run" The song was also used as pro-snowboarder Travis Rice's profile song in the Absinthe Movies film "POP". It is a playable track on Rock Band 2, Rock Band Unplugged, and Guitar Hero World Tour. The introduction of the song is commonly used at the start of a segment on the Mitch Albom Show on WJR radio in Detroit. This song was in heavy rotation at night on MTV/MTV2/VH1/Fuse upon music video creation/release.

Float On - Modest Mouse

[Verse 1]
I backed my car into a cop car the other day
Well he just drove off sometimes life's ok
I ran my mouth off a bit too much oh what did I say
Well you just laughed it off it was all ok

[Chorus]
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on anyway

[Verse 2]
Well, a fake Jamaican took every last dime with that scam
It was worth it just to learn from sleight-of-hand
Bad news comes don't you worry even when it lands
Good news will work it's way to all them plans
We both got fired on the exactly the same day
Well we'll float on good news is on the way

[Chorus]
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on alright

[Bridge]
Already we'll all float on
Now don't you worry we'll all float on
Alright already we'll all float on
Alright don't worry we'll all float on

Alright, already
And we'll all float on alright
Alright, Already we'll all float on
Alright don't worry even if things end up a bit to heavy
We'll all float on alright
Already we'll all float on
Alright already we'll all float on
Ok don't worry we'll all float on
Even if things get heavy all float on, alright
Already we'll all float on
Don't you worry we'll all float on
We'll all float on
