Background and compositionEdit
"Somebody" is the first single released from the soundtrack Lemonade Mouth (2011), for the Disney Channel television movie of the same name. It was produced by Reed Vertelney, who also co-wrote with Lindy Robbins. Musically, the song is prominent pop rock that runs through a pop oriented beat.
Kate Conrad form AOL said that the song was about how to turn bitter into something sweet and is a good mix of rock and pop music. Pop Dust criticized the lack of consistency in the production of the song, calling it as unattractive: "The song’s not that bad—it’s professionally mediocre at the very least—but it's hard to not wish that Disney had used this chance to at least attempt to humor the teenage-outsider contingent. Something to demonstrate at least token awareness of high-school misfitdom extending beyond the slightly goofier Jonas Brothers".
The song debuted (and peaked) at number 89 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number 12 on the US Billboard Heatseekers chart.
A lyrics music video was released on the Disney website later that same day. On March 18, 2011, the official music video for the song premiered on Disney Channel during a special Prom-themed The Suite Life on Deck.
