About that Juliana Theory song

Mike, Music No Comment

Since I just mentioned it in the last post, I decided it had been a while since I had listened to it. Such a great song and it was perfect for college me.


Juliana Theory – If I Told You This Was Killing Me, Would You Stop?

This should cover it

Somehow I don’t have a backlog of songs for when people suck. I have plenty for just one person sucking, but what about when a bunch of people are causing problems? There is a Juliana Theory song that comes to mind but that is already attached to a particularly sucky situation.

You think I would to. In college, when I’d get really stressed with lots of stuff due my roommates would refer to me being ‘angry at the world.’

Thanks to YouTube, I found the exact song to express my feelings. For a second there I thought I might have to start my music career. I feel like I’ve heard this song everywhere, need to remember it for future bad days.


Go Set Go – I Hate Everyone

On second thought, it could be angrier.

I’m not even sure where it came from but in the middle of the day today I got this Eminem song in my head. I haven’t even heard he song very much. The last time I heard it was probably last week. I don’t even really know the words. By the end of the day I remembered the song getting stuck in my head but I couldn’t even remember the beat. Odd.

#1 – Nobody Puts Baby in the Corner (Acoustic)

This came out first on the acoustic EP. It was also on From Under the Cork Tree. Not nearly as good as the acoustic but still great.

I couldn’t find the right version anywhere. Google led me to this German site, no idea if this is the correct embed code. I’m not fluent in German.

So wear me like a locket around your throat.
I’ll weigh you down.
I’ll watch you choke.

Am I more than you bargained for yet?

#2 – Sugar, We’re Going Down

The song that hit it big. All my friends knew how much I liked Fall Out Boy and were aware of some of their music. When this song blew up they all thought of me whenever they heard the song.

I’m just a notch in your bedpost but you’re just a line in a song.

Tonight is all about “We miss you”

#3 – Homesick at Space Camp

The first Fall Out Boy song I ever heard. Can you say love at first listen? I think it was a demo that I downloaded from AbsolutePunk. It was called Headphones. I was hooked.

Tonight the headphones will deliver you the words that I can’t say.

#4 – Of All the Gin Joints In All the World

The track before Sugar on From Under the Cork Tree sees a lot of fastballs. Meaning it has protection in the lineup. You wouldn’t really remember if it wasn’t very good. Turns out to be my 2nd favorite song on the album.

Turn off the lights and turn off the shyness

#5 – 7 Minutes in Heaven (Atavan Halen)

I started this list after this song got stuck in my head last week. As I was looking to remember which song it is reminded me how many FOB songs I love with only a few albums to choose from (if you notice I don’t have any on this list from the newest album).

I’m not going home alone cause I don’t do too well on my own

Mike

Someday I’ll appreciate in value, get off my ass and call you

#6 – Grand Theft Autumn/Where is your Boy?

When Sugar hit it big I thought this should have been the next single. So what if you have to go back to the previous album? As far as radio singles go, I think this would have been their second biggest hit, had it been released. The only reason it isn’t ranked higher for me is because I think I managed to overplay it myself. It’s also very good acoustic.

Maybe he won’t find out what I know: you were the last good thing about this part of town.

The songs you grow to like never stick at first

#7 – Dead on Arrival

The first FOB single off of Take This To Your Grave. Between this and the other two songs off that album that are higher on the list, it was not a difficult prediction to think they’d be huge.

So I’m writing you a chorus,
And here is your verse

Mike

I thought I loved you, It was just how you looked in the light

#8 – Hum Hallelujah

I listened to Infinity on High a bunch of times before this one caught me ear. Then I actually listened to it 5 times in a row. Yes, 5. I don’t think I’ve ever done that before.

One day we’ll get nostalgic for disaster.
