I don't care what you think, I'm falling back in love with Fall Out Boy

Yes, a very funny title, I know.

Anyhow, I have, as you have read in the title, fallen in love with this band. I love them to bits. Their style effortlessly shift around the genre that they hold like they created it. Patrick sings the lyrics as if he wrote them personally, when in fact it was Pete. Just scrolling through my iTunes, I came across their albums and played their first and second albums all the way through.

Now tell me this, is there a bad song? Secondly, are there any better song titles around too?

I highly doubt it.

Now, that does not in anyway represent the quality of the music, but the lyrics literally speak fr thm slvs:

"Am I more than you bargained for yet? I've been dying to tell you anything you want to hear
Cause that's just who I am this week"

"We're the new face of failure
Prettier and younger but not any better off
Bullet proof loneliness
At best, at best"

And this ones play on words are really creative: "champange for my real friends. real pain for my sham friends"

After Patrick's wedding, can we hope for a re-union? Yes. If I was a betting man (I must stress at this point that I am as far away from that title as the North Pole is from the South), I would say that next Spring a tour for US and a November tour for Europe. Seeing as I don't bet wrong, that will be wrong. Patrick is adamant they will only reform if it is for new music. That would push the Spring tour to November, and the European tour to February.

I'll see you on that tour, I'm sure of it.
