“am i more than you bargained for yet?”
i know you’re probably getting tired of reading about fall out boy- but i could go on and on about them. i have one more album i have to talk about that will forever hold a place in my heart.
from under the cork tree is fall out boy’s second studio album, and was released in may of 2005, when i was only 9 years old. it’s hard to believe i even remember listening to the album so well. most specifically, i remember listening to sugar, we’re going down and dance, dance through the speakers of one of those old school video game rocking chairs while playing my play station 2 and enjoying life as a child. it’s crazy what you remember about your childhood- and it’s crazy to me how much fall out boy played a role in mine.
here are my favorites from the album:
“nobody puts baby in the corner”
of course the name of the song is taken from the movie “dirty dancing”
nothing comes as easy as you
can i lay in your bed all day?
i’ll be your best kept secret and your biggest mistake
hand behind this pen relives a failure everyday”
“a little less sixteen candles, a little more touch me”
kiss her, kiss her
between the pages of the bible in the drawer
‘what did it ever do for me?’, i say
love never wanted me, but i took it, anyway
put your ear to the speaker and choose love or sympathy
but never both, love never wanted me”
thanks for listening to my 3 part tribute to my favorite band. i know they aren’t everyone’s favorite but that’s okay- that means more pete wentz for me to love.
long live the car crash hearts,
