Some lore about Translator's universally acclaimed and beloved new wave-era single from 1982: The band was signed on the strength of a demo tape of the song received by a San Francisco college radio station; the album version was produced by David Kahne who later went on to star in productions by the Bangles and other chart-toppers. It was not written in the wake of John Lennon's death, as many fans and critic's have mistakenly claimed, but it is four minutes and three seconds of pure pop pleasure executed by four young men -- two songwriters, two guitars, bass, and drums -- with a bona fide Beatles fixation. Much like McCartney's lyrical bass lines that worked in tandem with Starr's swinging drums, it is the rhythm section driving this one -- the jangle rock guitar sound simply punctuates the melody. The singer's frustration at trying to hook up with the person who's "everywhere that I'm not" is palpable as the desperation of his search is mimicked in the meandering melody. With each chorus -- "that's impossible that's im, that's impossible that's imposs, that's impossible" -- he becomes increasingly tense and nervous to the point where he's screaming the title refrain. This was the most enduring song by San Francisco's entry into the new wave, mainstream sweepstakes.
