I thought it would never come but it is finally here...no not a Yankee win...I'm talking about the Fall Out Boy Concert! T-minus 24 hours and I cannot wait!
It is going to be awesome...I can feel it.
So in honor of the big night...here is the list of my Top Ten Fall Out Boy songs...and the hope that I get to see them performed live tomorrow night.
In no particular order...
Dance Dance - Here is the song that started it all. I, like most people found this song to be quite annoying when it first came out but only because it was always on the damn radio. Now that I am a loyal FOB fan I can fully appreciate that this song is freaking awesome! Patrick doesn't really showcase his completely amazing vocal abilities in this one but that's okay. It is a great tune. Best Line: "I'm two quarters and a heart down and I don't want to forget how your voice sounds."
A Little Less Sixteen Candles A Little More Touch Me - For some reason this is one of my favorite songs by the band to sing. I love the lyrics but I have to admit that I absolutely LOVE the title. It is a fine example of the fact that Fall Out Boy has the best titled songs around. It is a fun song about the guy who screwed up and know that he is never going to live it down. I think that I could forgive anyone who was singing this song. Best Line: "I don't blame you for being you but you can't blame me for hating it!"
I'm Like A Lawyer With The Way That I'm Always Trying To Get You Off - How awesome is this title? To answer my own question...pretty damn awesome! I will always love this song. It is great to listen to, great to sing, and it always provokes thoughts that are pleasant to think about it. Funny how the mind can link people to songs even though there is no good reason for it. It also reminds me that if you can't have everything...be grateful for whatever you can get. Best Line: "The best way to make it through with hearts and wrists intact is to realize that two out of three ain't bad."
America's Suitehearts - Let me just say that this video freaks me out. That being said...I love the song. It is just an awesome song to sing. I sing the shit out of daily in the car. So you can bet that I'm looking forward to singing the shit out of it tomorrow night with Mack Dino. Best Line: "I must confess...I'm in love with my own sins."
I Slept With Someone From Fall Out Boy And I All I Got Was This Stupid Song Written About Me - Let this song be a lesson to you...don't break the heart of someone who can embarrass you on the radio. It also is a good reminder that someone with a brokenhearted doesn't act rationally and shouldn't be expected to. Mostly I love this song because it is funny. Damn funny. I doubt they will play it but here's hoping! Best Line: "I'm the first kid to write of hearts, lies, and friends and I am sorry my conscience called in sick again."
20 Dollar Nose Bleed - I love this song because the opening line makes me feel better about myself. It makes me happy to know that other people ask themselves these questions. I am not too optimistic that they are going to play it tomorrow but that's okay. Once again the opening line is the best line so that is awesome! Best Line: "Have you ever wanted to disappear and join a monastery...go out and preach on Manic Street?"
I Don't Care - As stated in a prior posting...this song is fucking awesome because of Patrick. He sings it so well that it still gets to me. It literally gives me the chills when he sings it. I seriously cannot wait to see what kind of effect it has on me in person. I am getting the chills just thinking about it. Oh and the first line is my favorite line which you all know gives it bonus points. Best Line: "Say my name and his in the same breath...I dare you to say they taste the same."
This Ain't A Scene, Its An Arms Race - This is pretty much a given to be played tomorrow because it is probably their biggest hit. It is another impressive display of Patrick's vocal abilities. So for that reason it is the bomb! Best Line: "All the boys who the dance floor didn't love and all the girls whose hips couldn't move fast enough...sing until your lungs give out."
Coffee's For Closers - This song is tough to write about because it is so damn awesome. I could spend an entire post on the greatness of this song. Musically it is awesome, lyrically it is almost too awesome, and vocally it is in a league of its own. I cannot say how much I love it. It is really hard to even pick the best line of the song because there are so many great ones. But for tonight I will pick one knowing that it will probably change the next time that I blog about this fantastic song. It also happens to be the opening line...yet again. Best Line: "I can't explain a thing, I want everything to change and stay the same."
Thanks For The Memories - I will go so far as to say that this is my all-time favorite song by the band. In the right mood I will find myself listening to it and singing it over and over again. It is a great little "screw you...I'm going home" song. Patrick really does sing the shit out of the song and that is just one of the many reasons that I love it. I will be super pissed off if they don't perform it tomorrow. Best Line: "Thanks for the memories even though they weren't so great."
I just can't wait!!!!
