  • “Thrill Of The Night” is the first single from the up coming full length LP by New Jersey Rockers “The NEW Bardots “

      This catchy, rhythmic, lyrical smorgasbord is a out of the box look at the world with a rock and roll twist.   A bit off the beaten path of a straight forward rock song Thrill Of The Night delivers a brainfreeze sip of a musical frozen Slurpee.

     “The lyrics just kind of fell out of my head in a matter of  minutes…..the music that the band created just lit some sort of mental fire in my mind that I had to put out on paper”…Wayne O (Lead Singer The NEW Bardots)

  • This rocker has you grooving from the first cord…….a solid, paced out rock song reminiscent of Creedence Clearwater Revival…..captures your ear and your imagination as you listen to the story told.


    For many …Greed, power and the almighty dollar seems all they are interested in ….but remember…they are human and will not be able to take it with them when their time on earth has expired..”

                  -Wayne O…Lead Singer The NEW Bardots.

  • You give your soul to the dollar / He’s your friend / Your politician will take what you pay” growls singer, Wayne Olivieri. He also calls out company wage gaps. The message is clear in this one; the rich get richer, and the rest get thinner.

    The rest of the band brings some real firepower to the mix. There are two separate solos sandwiched between the verses – lead guitar first, then harmonica. Tight, backing harmonies are employed in the refrain and give the section a real boost and help bring home the song’s retro vibe.

    Corporation Businessman is classic blues rock. It’s simple, straight up the middle, but uncompromising and the lyric certainly takes no prisoners. The NEW Bardots quip that they have stepped in to save rock’n’roll from extinction, and this track stands as proof that they are certainly doing an excellent job so far.

  • About The NEW Bardots

    This fast-paced Ramone esk remake is a get-up and shake-it version of the classic Jackie Deshannon’s “Put A Little Love In Your Heart”.


    “With everything that’s going on in the world today and all the hate in the world and on both sides of the political isle we thought this song was a perfect catalyst to not only send a message of “LOVE” but just an overall fun, rip roaring rock and roll version to forget all your troubles and bounce to!” - Wayne O  (Lead Singer The NEW Bardots)

  • Some History about The Song

    "Put a Little Love in Your Heart" is a song originally performed in 1968 and released in 1969 by Jackie DeShannon, who composed it with her brother, Randy Myers, and Jimmy Holiday.

    In the USA, it was DeShannon's highest-charting hit, reaching #4 on the Hot 100 and #2 on the Adult Contemporary charts.

    In late 1969, the song reached number one on South Africa's hit parade. The song rivaled the success of her signature song, "What the World Needs Now is Love".
