"The first 18 months of your career are gonna be the craziest," says singer Hilary Scott. "The first 18 months of our career was nuts, but then you just hit pockets of busy moving forward. Your gauge of normal will change, like 'There's only five interviews today?'"

The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
