The Seeds – Pushin’ Too Hard

This song has a gritty garage sound to it. There were many 1960’s garage bands that formed after The Beatles appeared on Ed Sullivan. The Seeds were formed in 1965 by Sly Saxon. Saxon wrote, “Pushin’ Too Hard” while sitting in the front seat of a car waiting for his girlfriend to finish grocery shopping at a supermarket. The song peaked at #36 in the Billboard 100 in 1967. The song is simple and repetitive but catchy in its own way.

The Seeds barely missed another top 40 hit with “Can’t Seem To Make You Mine.”

 

Pushin’ Too Hard

You’re pushin’ too hard, uh-pushin’ on me

You’re pushin’ too hard, uh-what you want me to be

You’re pushin’ too hard about the things you say

You’re pushin’ too hard every night and day

You’re pushin’ too hard

Pushin’ too hard on me (too hard)

 

Well all I want is to just be free

Live my life the way I wanna be

All I want is to just have fun

Live my life like it’s just begun

But you’re pushin’ too hard

Pushin’ too hard on me (too hard)

 

Better listen girl to what I’m tellin’ you

You better listen girl, or we are through

You better stop all your foolin’ around

Stop your runnin’ all over town

‘Cause you’re pushin’ too hard

Pushin’ too hard on me (too hard)

 

Well I know there’s a lotta fish in the sea

I know some would-uh stay by me

So if you don’t think I’m gonna try

You better ask yourself the reason why

‘Cause you’re pushin’ too hard

Pushin’ too hard on me (too hard)

 

Pushin’ too hard, pushin’ too hard

Pushin’ too hard, pushin’ too hard on me (too hard)

Pushin’ too hard, pushin’ too hard

Pushin’ too hard, pushin’ too hard on me (too hard)

      1. I’ve always wanted one…why? Because they look cool…not practical but they look cool…a vox one… Ovation acoustic guitars slip also with that graphite backing…I had one…

      2. I traded my Ovation for a Beatle Bass copy. With flat wound strings…it sounds really good.
        The Ovation just got on my nerves.
