New Music: Fall Out Boy, “My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark (Light ‘Em Up)”

So my middle school heart almost exploded when the rumors officially became true – Fall Out Boy is back and they have a new song (and tour!) to prove it. After weeks of speculation, the boys have released a brand new song that has further polarized their dedicated fan base. As a lifelong fan (and by life I mean since 6th grade), I was a bit torn when I first heard the track. It’s absolutely NOT the FOB from An Evening Out with Your Girlfriend or Take This to Your Grave. But, then again, that Fall Out Boy died a long time ago. And while that death was sad, it did make ample room for the new and improved From Under the Cork Tree version… which died again when Infinity on High came out. MAKE UP YOUR MIND GUYS.

“My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light ‘Em Up)” is much more reminiscent of Infinity on High and Folie A Deux – pop rock infused with a touch of electronic. Whether you like it or not is your decision, but try not to like it too much – their tour sold out within mere minutes and, unless you have hundreds of dollars to buy a scalped ticket off of StubHub, you won’t be hearing it live anytime soon.

Give it a listen and let me know what you think:

New Music: Nelly, “Hey Porsche”

I was very recently (as in an hour ago) turned onto this new Nelly song and I almost had a heart attack. Does anyone remember the Nelly that told everyone to take their clothes off because it’s getting “Hot in Herre”? I remember carrying his CD around and telling everyone how I had a huge crush on him. Like… where did he go?!

Why is NO ONE else concerned that he is all of a sudden singing a song that should be sung by Hot Chelle Rae? (If you don’t know who that is, don’t bother Googling them, you will cry.) Yes, it’s catchy. Yes, I have been singing it for an hour. BUT THIS IS NOT NELLY. WHAT IS THIS?!

I don’t know if I want to ask for your opinion because I am nearly heartbroken at what Nelly now is. Check it out… if you dare:

Beautiful Music: Last Dinosaurs

If you listened to me in my heyday on WTBU (I was a huge campus celebrity, NBD), you know I am a MAJOR fan of Last Dinosaurs. I played their songs “Honolulu” and “Zoom” on endless rotation. If I had my way I would have only played their music half the time. But then I risked losing one of my two listeners, and that just didn’t seem worth it.

The quartet hails from Brisbane, Australia, the land of colossal spiders and really nothing else. Besides Chris Hemsworth. But then I see this (NSFW/NSFL/NOT WORTH IT/SPIDER MONSTER – also credit YouTube user totalstrikegently) and I am reminded that Australia is full of HELL SPAWNS and it clouds my vision.

Either way, if you haven’t heard Last Dinosaurs yet, you are missing out on some amazing music. They are a mix of pop rock, electronic, and magic. Not one song of theirs that has disappointed me yet.

Check them out and let me know what you think:
