Band Name Origins:

  • Well ACTUALLY, Keith was trying to think of a name one night before a gig. He was writing prospective names on one of those toy clipboards with a plastic pencil. The kind where you lift the piece of cellophane and it erases what you wrote. After seeing a kiddy pool lying on it's side, he had wrote down: Vertical Pool Then lifted up the page halfway to erase pool and wrote "Horizon." Submitted by: ENR
  • Acually, "horizontal" is the opposite of "vertical". So this would make "Vertical Horizon" an oxymoron. Submitted by: newsound

Stupid Band Names:

  • Come on now, everyone knows that vertical is the opposite of horizontal. The word "horizontal" means "like the horizon", so this band name is an Oxymoron. Submitted by: xyz

a parody of "Everything You Want" by Vertical Horizon
I'm not going to lie, the original recording of this was very--sad. The lyrics weren't funny--so I decided it needed a rewrite. No wonder I didn't post the soundclick link before.

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Everything You Want"
The Lyrics:
I am everything you want.
I am everything you need.
I am everything inside of you
that you will ever be.
I say all the right things
at exactly the right time,
but I mean nothing to you,
and I don't know why.
Here we find out the man with the unrequited love sung about throughout the song is the singer himself.
Submitted by: Brian Kelly
