fall out boy: a tribute – part 3

“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.

51-hZhhgiZL._SX355_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”

“keep quiet,
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”


“i don’t blame you for being youbut you can’t blame me for hating it
so say, what are you waiting for?
kiss her, kiss her
i set my clocks early ’cause
i know i’m always late
the music video to this song is also worth the watch- it tells a wonderful story about pete wentz being a vampire, as well as a throwback flip phone at 0:45. (also a cameo of brendon urie for any of you panic!at the disco fans)


“to the ‘love’, i left my conscience pressed
between the pages of the bible in the drawer
‘what did it ever do for me?’, i say
it never calls me when i’m down
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,

  1. The amount of Fall Out Boy I listened and still do listen too is a lot lol. I have not seen the whole band perform live, but I have seen Pete Wentz perform before which was super cool.

      1. It was in Las Vegas. I was at the Gamestop manger’s conference they have every year for store mangers. He was there promoting Guitar Hero Live. So he came out playing the real guitar then switched to the game guitar. He was cool to see. I think he did signings later that week at the expo, but I didn’t get to see him then.


  2. Omg I remember watching TRL and MTV hits so I could see the videos lol. The good ole days. I’ll never forget the deer/boy from sugar we’re going down. “I’m just a notch in your bedpost, but you’re just a line in a song” is probably my favorite line lol
