Throwback Thursday | “Baby, you wouldn’t last a minute…” – Chiodos

It’s been awhile but the wait is so worth it.

This. Song. Is. Life.

I heard this song when I was a freshmen in high school and it remains on my list of favorite songs to this day! Is Chiodos still around?

We say what we feel then we stop ourselves and just walk away. Never looking back, loving every second of it, we just walk away. 

This song is the ultimate bitter break up song. Dumping/or getting dumped by someone sucks no matter what end of the spectrum you’re on. What better way to handle it than ignoring everything you have said, everything you have done, and never looking back? Right? According to Chiodos that was the way to go! But, then again….how can you really just forget everything and pretend it never happened. Now you see the dilemma they’re singing about?

I can remember this song getting me through A LOT! Artist may never understand how powerful a hook can be. AND for those who are not a fan of screamo, like my mother wasn’t, the song even comes in a beautiful acoustic version.

Check out the song and let me know what you think:

#5DaysofFOB – Day 2

As many of you know, I am a HUGE Fall Out Boy fan! When I heard they were getting back together I had no choice but to get my ticket right away. In honor of the band’s return, I will take you through 5 days of Fall Out Boy leading up to their SOLD OUT concert in Columbus on May 17 for their Save Rock and Roll tour.

Day 2

“Drink down that gin and kerosene and come spit on bridges with me. Just to keep us warm, light a match to leave me be.” 

The opening lines to Fall Out Boy’s “Nobody Put’s Baby In The Corner” is saying in so many words, “go kill yourself and leave me alone”. My interpretation of the song: it is about someone who is bitter because they have just got their heart broken and they want that person to disappear off of the face of the earth. The only problem is, though their heart is broken, they are still in love and too jealous to completely leave this person in fear that they will go be with someone else. So they put up with all of their drama and the chance to be free and happy because they are still in love. Everyone has been there right?

A crazy, bitter, and tear jerking love story sung beautifully.
