Folie à deux

Hola everyone.


First of all happy easter holidays everybody. I hope you’re all having amazing days off and could spent some wonderful time with your loved ones. I did, thankfully.

.

But this post won’t be dedicated to a bunny laying chocolate eggs in our gardens, but to a fantastic band I’ve already talked about pretty often. So I’m quite sure you’ll all know it by now. But to bring an end to all your questions, I’m talking about my beloved band Fall Out Boy.

.

For me, FOB is a band that will always have a place in my heart and some space on my sd-card, just because I love their music so much. The first time I got to know this band was actually in 2013, when I went to the cinema to watch “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”. The movie starts of with some sort of turnier scene, while FOBs song “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark” is playing in the background. The movie was amazing, but somehow it was the song that kept stuck in my head, I just couldn’t forget about it. And so I googled and googled and googled some more until I finally found it. And that’s where my love for FOB has its beginning. Since then the band and their music has been following me throughout the days. And I don’t mind it at all.

.

If I had to name my favorite song of them, I’d probably start with one song and then just name every single one of them. And that’s the special thing about the band, I just really love everything they do.

.

But in the past few weeks one album of theirs has stuck out of the crowd – Folie à deux. The title literally transaltes to “shared madness”, which is, at least for me, a quite funny aspect of the album. The LP itself is quite old, published in December 2008, but still as awesome as before. Maybe some of you have already given it a listen or love it just as much as me. Or maybe some of you don’t know the album or the band at all. In any cases, I can just highly recommend you listening to it if you’re a fan of indie/punk rock.

.

Personally, I have three total favorites of the album:

  • Disloyal Order Of Water Buffaloes
  • What a Catch, Donnie
  • 20 Dollar Nose Bleed

.

Disloyal Order Of Water Buffaloes actually had me having a little throwback the first time I heard the studio version, because that was the exact song I couldn’t recognize at the FOB gig at Reading festival. And I’ve been totally in love with it since then. I actually found the Reading live version on YouTube, so enjoy…

.

And let’s be honest, What a Catch, Donnie is a pure masterpiece. It’s a song where you can clearly hear the huge talent of the band and Patrick, the lead singer. His vocals are breathtaking, seriously.

.

And last but not least, 20 Dollar Nose Bleed. You all know how big of a fan I am of Panic! at the disco and just to my luck, Brendon is actually featured in this song. That makes it even more perfect than what it already is. And another fun fact, Brendon also has a small appearance in the video for What a Catch (tell me if you could spy him).

.

So yeah, those are my three favorites of the album, please enjoy. And please don’t hesitate to tell me your opinion on the album, I’m really curious. It’s quite sad, because I don’t really often meet someone who’s a fan of FOB too, so I’d be superhappy to be able to talk to some of you guys out there.

.

And as always, I hope you enjoyed this post and are all doing well and had an amazing weekend. And thanks for reading. x
