Chart performance

"Over" spent three weeks at #1 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart.[1]

"Over" was less successful than her earlier single ("Rumors") in the United States (even though it charted five spots higher), but it did well in other countries, especially Ireland. It also reached top 30 in Australia (#27) and many other countries. In Indonesia, the song didn't receive any radio airplay, the video wasn't even aired on television.

This was also her first single in the UK, so far it is the only single she has released there. Lack of promotion could explain the lack of chart success in the UK.[2]

Music video

The video was directed by Jake Nava. It is influenced by the 1999 Academy Award-winning movie American Beauty, and describes the lead character feeling down of a boyfriend. Lohan's character longs for the mistreated boy-next-door, watching him through her window. The video features model-turned-actor Drew Fuller as Lohan's boyfriend. The video shows the ups and downs of her and Fuller's relationship and Lohan reflecting on it.

The video begins with Lohan walking towards her house in a suburb, and stealing a glance at her boyfriend, who lives next door. His father apparently does not want them to see each other, so he closes the curtain and begins to argue violently with his son. Lohan gets angry at this and returns to her house. In her bedroom, she sees her lover looking at her from his bedroom. She smiles, intensely happy to see him. Next, he is seen destroying his father's car in the garage. The next morning, both Lohan and Fuller make intimate love in his RV. That night, at an outdoor party, Lohan and her boyfriend look very cozy with each other. Everyone is shocked when Fuller's father shows up to the party, enraged. His father tells him once again he is forbidden from going out with Lohan and orders him to come home immediately. The two walk away, turning their back on Lohan, who is in tears. Later that night at Lohan's house, we see her in nightclothes, at the fridge. She is surprised to see her boyfriend looking at her from outside her house, telling her to run away with him. With the company of a couple of friends, they sit in their cars on an empty lot. His father shows up again, and Fuller faces him. Furious, his father pushes him fiercely to the ground, while Lohan is horrified. Fuller tells her that their relationship will not work. With Lohan in her room sobbing, the video ends with her lover turning off the lights in his room. Throughout the video, we see Lohan singing with her own band in the garage.
