It Couldn't Be Done

By Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn't be done But he with a chuckle replied That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it!

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that; At least no one ever has done it;" But he took off his coat and he took off his hat And the first thing we knew he'd begun it. With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit, He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure, There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it; Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.

If you haven’t heard of Remi Wolf, you may be living under a rock. If it’s you’re first time hearing of this artist, do yourself a favor and listen to all her songs. She has such a playful and infectious voice, it’s enough to make anyone start dancing. In her songs, she has made reference to Brad and Angelina, UFC fighter Conor McGregor, fast food, and pilates classes. The 25-year-old Californian native has managed to create a sound that is uniquely hers. Wolf said, “I mean, it’s my music and my voice and I know that it’s definitely unique to me – but it’s crazy that people view it as something special. It makes me feel really good.” She’s rewriting the rules of pop as we speak.

Last year, her album Juno was named one of the year’s best albums according to everyone from USA Today. Wolf didn’t plan on rising to pop stardom but was training to become a downhill skier. She said, “I was pretty good! I ended up going to the Junior Olympics twice, but I don’t think I was ever good enough to make the [adult] US Olympic team – so I decided to pursue music more full time.” She formed a high school band with friend Chloe Zilliac and they named themselves Remi and Chloe. She also auditioned for American Idol and made it to the top 150 back in 2014. After that, her music teacher put her in touch with Jared Solomon, a multi-instrumentalist. Solomon joined Remi and Chloe’s backing band and even offered his basement to rehearse.

In 2019, Wolf released her album You’re A Dog! which proved her musical range and humor. When it comes to her writing process, Remi explained, “I’m very free-associative. I let my brain run and try to imagine how I feel in images, which is why a lot of my lyrics sound a bit abstract. I just trust what my mouth wants to say before I let my critical brain tarnish anything.” Island Records ended up signing the talented singer, but she wanted to keep her autonomy. In 2020, her hit song Photo ID went absolutely viral on TikTok and the rest is history. She is getting closer and closer to superstar status and we couldn’t be more proud of her. Now you can go listen to her songs on repeat. You won’t be disappointed.
