Michelle 0:36

Kelly 0:48

Hello, this is Kelly. Thanks for listening today. We're excited to have you.

Brianne 0:53

Hey guys, having fun. It's it's I'm sorry, I was just really depressed about this whole Corona nonsense which I'm majoring

Michelle 1:00

Which What are we drinking Brianne?

Brianne 1:02

Everything is Wine and nothing matters

Michelle 1:06

hell yeah that's good. You should have like a pop punk princess oh my god wait oh you are

oh my god oh my god so you guys can see the direction the episode is heading in. So we'll just kind of get into it because we've got a lot to get through today like an entire frickin album. That is right. I hope you realize my intro you know wake up my sunshines and all that jazz means that it is wake up sunshine day. So back in 2012 when baby Michelle baby Brianne and baby Kelly were in college and the moshpit was still radio show. We had don't panic day, which was a wonderful day and it was celebrating the release of all time lows album Don't panic. So in following with moshpit traditions, we are now going to dedicate days and slash episodes to new albums. So get ready for moshpit holidays that are going to be a mouthful because in the near future we're also going to have forever and ever times infinity day and all distortions are intentional day. And all that you guys have. I did I just kind of went for it. You know,

Brianne 2:13

I'm so proud of you. Sorry to cut you off.

Michelle 2:16

No, it's fine. But uh,

yeah, so before we get into the track by track of wake up sunshine, we're kind of mixing up our format today we're going to go straight into music news. So last time, we gave you a whole episode about COVID-19 as much as we want to get past it, you know, it's, it's here for the time being and it's a huge part of our lives.

Kelly 2:42

Yeah, starting off with some sad COVID-19 news so that hopefully we can move towards more happy news later in this episode, but Adam lead singer of Fountains of Wayne died at age 52 from complications related to Coronavirus. Just you know loss of an icon that's always absolutely terrible. And then in combination with all of the other kind of losses and craziness going on in the music industry, there have been tons of tributes on social media, in remembrance of Adam from actors, musicians, other celebrities. And so those those tributes are great to see. Something that was kind of interesting when I was reading a little bit more about Adam and fountains of Wayne was the drummer of Fountains of Wayne was actually had actually tried to convince Adam to not release and record Stacy's mom, which is obviously, you know, a hit song and kind of what fountains of Wayne is known for, and so he was trying to convince the band to not put out the song because he knew it was gonna be a hit. And he knew everyone was gonna love it. And that would be kind of what Adam in the band were remembered for.

Michelle 4:11

And he was right.

Kelly 4:12

And he was so right. But he kind of was making the point that Adam should be remembered for so much more. And he had, you know, he's written and performed some really amazing songs. And so yeah, just a really sad piece of news there.

Michelle 4:30

Yeah, I mean, fountains of Wayne I've heard a couple of their songs aside for Stacy's mom, but that's what I've always known fountains of Wayne by but since there's the news of Adam Schlesinger, I started listening to more and my god I missed out in all these years, and, you know, if if you haven't heard his music beyond Stacy's mom, definitely go check out some of that out. Because you know why you should go check out that music because we're not gonna To be getting any live music anytime soon. So obviously, we all know our concerts are getting canceled and postponed. And you know, we're hoping that hopefully by the summer we'll be able to go see our favorite bands. But you better start preparing yourselves for the possibility of no concerts until Ba ba ba fall 2021 Yeah, so there was a New York Times story discussing the impacts of the virus. And live music came up in that aspect and you know, not just live music, sporting events, all these things that you know, people go and do. They were talking about it and there was one oncologist and bioethicist, Zeke Emanuel, who said that, you know, restarting everything's got to be done in stages. And, you know, there's certain kinds of things where you, you know, you can maintain six foot distances and it's more reasonable to start sooner but large gatherings, conferences, concerts, sporting events, you know, saying they're going to reschedule it for the fall that's just so unlikely and he said realistically, we're talking fall 2021 at the earliest and now look obviously we all know it's it's crazy right now and you know there's just so much unknown about this especially we're not we don't know when we're gonna have a vaccine and you know, there might be resurgence has come summer come fall, but you know, things are going to be changing rapidly in the next couple of months. So hopefully, you know, maybe if not by the fall by the spring, I really hoping that I don't have to wait over a year to go to a concert, because I will die. Corona will kill me indirectly.

Kelly 6:43

That was dark. It was dark.

Brianne 6:47

It was dark. I just, I'm just trying to think like, I've got one, two concerts, two concerts. It have three. Yeah. I've got um, The hella mega tour or whatever, and then I've got I've got that which is our genre, but then I have the Backstreet Boys. Oh, me too, because I'm a 90s chicks so it's fine. Um, but those those are in the the ones in the summer one's in the fall and either way like I was I was hoping that it was going to be saved but like it deep down I was like

Michelle 7:26

yeah, I don't think sad summer fest is gonna go on.

Brianne 7:29

Oh, I know and I'm sad and I'm also not sad about it because the one show I wanted to go to was like the one weekend I couldn't go right. Like maybe we maybe reschedule? It's like Yeah,

Michelle 7:40

but now I'm like worried that I'm not gonna even be able to go see neck deep in December.

Kelly 7:44

Oh yeah, I bought those too I forgot about those.

Michelle 7:47

Yeah, so yeah, cuz it's so far out. I know. But I guess it looks like we're all gonna be getting used to live streams. And speaking of live streams since they're the newest concert for the time being, it's time for another concert etiquette segment.

Brianne 8:06

Shouldn't it be livestream etiquette considering the fact that you're not I don't want to I don't want to actually say it because it just makes me sad. But you know

Michelle 8:23

it's a little bit easier to be a polite human in live streams. So we don't really have much for you

Brianne 8:30

here Yeah, if you suck in a live stream then you are a monster.

Kelly 8:33

Okay, there are totally trolls in the chat heard of like live stream Oh, is that your thing? Okay, so that's

Michelle 8:40

no you gotta kel that's where I was going with it like we're not you know there's there's very little you can do to be an asshole in a livestream. But you know if you're that person that is just like copy and pasting the same message over and over again for them to see like, Oh, my God, I love you marry me or something like really annoying. Don't do it because Cuz like, you, I know you can kind of like make not look at the live like the chat but like, it's still there. It's annoying. Like, we're there all to see the band's like, Yeah, I know, like they, they kind of try to interact, but you know, it's a live stream performance for the most part unless it's like a q&a then you know, I don't know, send messages to your heart's content, whatever, but but you know, it's it's I think it's pretty easy to be a polite concert goer in a live stream. So there we go.

Kelly 9:29

Great advice. Thanks.

Brianne 9:31

Um, so on that whole note of like, not being able to go to concerts and whatnot means most of us I mean, you know, it's not the only way to get merch but a good amount of us usually get merch when we go to a concert, you know, cuz no one wants to pay for shipping who pays for shipping now these days? anywho. Um, but

Michelle 9:48

because we have no we have amazon prime, nobody pays for shipping

Brianne 9:52

real life. So, um, so because of that Thursday, the the band Thursday, revealed week ago that they would be using their unsold merch And transforming them into masks for people to wear for the whole Coronavirus nonsense. And they sold them to fans first and they sold out the stock that was meant for fans in nine seconds. nine seconds.

Kelly 10:16

That's wild. What a great idea.

Brianne 10:19

Yeah, but because of that they were able to donate hundreds to like all hospital workers and all that kind of stuff.

Michelle 10:25

And they sure do need it.

Brianne 10:27

Yeah, right. My boyfriend's sister works at a hospital so like it means so much when people are donating and whatnot. So yeah, 100% Um, but yeah, so the band tweeted we have started the process of turning our appropriate stock merchandise from our webstore into fabric face masks for the frontline medical workers and essential personnel further information how you can help follow later on later in the week. Stay safe and stay connected stay inside. So they have partnered with they partnered with 2 New Jersey. Companies, Jersey mask makers and face mask warriors to help create them. They posted it on Instagram about it and they're pretty, like plain. I mean they're black with their little insignia on the bottom corner but I just think it's a great way to be giving back at the same time as you know, you like rather than letting the stuff sit in a warehouse somewhere it's helping the world you know get back to normal hopefully, every little bit helps.

Kelly 11:30

So awesome. So wholesome.

Brianne 11:33

All right on to the next thing I have officially dubbed this COVID free news. Are we allowed to say that

Michelle 11:40

Yeah, we're no more COVID that you know, like I said, we want to get away from it. So we had to talk about it, but now we're done.

Brianne 11:47

So it's over however, it doesn't mean that this is any good news. At least mine at least at least the next one. Um, so the band camino who we'll be talking about later because they are featured On all time lows new album have recently parted ways with their bass player due to sexual sexual misconduct allegations. Basically they posted on on social media like or parting ways for personal reasons blah, blah blah. And this kind of preempted a bunch of fans to come forward and talk about how this guy treated them poorly in all different stories. There's one accusation that you can find on the internet, I don't want to get into the nitty gritty of it just for trigger reasons. So on Twitter, the bassist posted one of those like, stereotypical I'm famous, I'm gonna screenshot my notes and then post something rather than just typing it because whatever. Um, so he said, Well, it's kind of, um, he said First off, there is nothing that I can put into words to explain how sorry I am for my actions, but I will try to those I have hurt I am sorry you are valid you matter and the way I have treated you will not define you. I fully accept that All blame and that is deserved for what I have done. I am truly sorry I never wanted to hurt anyone. I am currently in therapy for issues that led to my mistakes as well as handling the fallout that I have caused. Please respect my privacy while I work through this and attempt to come out out of this a better man.

Michelle 13:18

Congratulations bro you did the bare minimum

Brianne 13:22

Yeah, it's it's one of those things like of course you always want someone to try to like realize where their issues are and realize where they did wrong but like Jesus like this is the most like textbook I screwed up and like whatever miss a sexual misconduct would be groping etc it's literally a copy and paste of like fill in your discretion here kind of form like there's no there's no heart. Yeah, hold on to that.

Michelle 13:50

Yeah, legit like I'm always for people realizing the mistakes and trying to do right by the people they hurt and whatever but it's so soon I don't give a fuck what you're saying bro. Show talk to me in a couple of years. Let's see how you've changed. Okay, as you know, like it It upsets me because you know like there's so many young impressionable people that look up to these bands and for you to use that admiration as a manipulation tactic is just so fucking evil that you know like i said i if you change good for you I I'll accept that but God you're such a piece of shit like

Brianne 14:29

it's not it's not just like to our genre that is literally the most textbook thing is that any one man woman XYZ using their position of power and you know people looking up to them in their advantage to whether it be do something horrible like this or to you know, get what they want, whether it be actual sexual favors, or you know, like, money or anything. It's just it's it's the shittiest parts of humanity.

Kelly 15:00

I think how the band reacted was good. Like, I mean, they posted that I think I was reading within like, hours. of hearing of this

Michelle 15:11

No, that's that is that is how bands should react

Kelly 15:14

I mean, that's really good to hear.

Michelle 15:18

Yeah, absolutely. Like, I mean, you have to take any allegation with a grain of salt. And obviously, you know, everybody deserves the right to be heard. But, you know, most of the time, the majority of the time it's, it is what it is. And I think the fact that the band believed this fan, and they took it, they took the right action is, you know, very commendable. Makes me like him em even more now. And I never listened to them before they were on the new all time low album. But speaking of shitty bands, no. No, I'm just kidding. Don't just like five Seconds of Summer who is I? Who I'm going to talk about now?

Brianne 16:04

I like them.

Michelle 16:05

I know I kind of liked them too. I'm just I'm just talking shit because you know they were a little bit more pop punk now they're just kind of pop. And you know, they're not that's fair. They're just a little a little too bubblegum for my liking.

Brianne 16:19

They're leaning way too much more toward in one direction than leaning towards like all time low. Like they're said there was their inspiration.

Michelle 16:25

Exactly. But so I don't know there was just all this mishegoss about that they were supposed to have like the number one spot on the Billboard charts and their fans were freaking out because apparently there's a shipping error for their latest album. So the sales numbers appeared lower. And so the drummer Ashton was like, you know, talking about it and telling fans what they're proud of what they accomplished, and you know, they're trying to fix it or whatever. I'm like, honestly, dude, what does it even matter? You have a huge fan base. You sold a shit ton. Who cares if your number one on Billboard doesn't actually affect you know, because You know what you're successful as fuck so get the fuck out of here with your bullshit. That is my take on it and all the five seconds summer all the five seconds of summer fans are gonna come for me.

Brianne 17:12

Oh yeah here's the thing is I completely understand when you work so hard on something and then have it like blow up in your face like it especially for something as stupid as shipping like and for something you literally can't control so I understand working your ass off on something for especially an album months and months and months and then have something outside your control like COVID-19 fucking up the postal system to you know, like, delay everything and like the Billboard Album or the Billboard charts. That's annoying because like, who cares about that? Like, yeah, it's a nice little trophy you can put on your shelf but whatever. When it comes right down to it. I think it's more important that like, fans aren't pissed about stuff like all time Low they, they openly during their live stream the day that their album was released was talking about, like, we know some of the pre orders are shipping late. We're really sorry, blah, blah, blah. And they like if you buy the physical album, which I didn't end up doing, but they also sent I think, I think they sent everyone the digital download as long as they bought the album in some form. Maybe I have to check that back check that later. We'll let you know either way they were they were cognizant of it. And they like apologize rather than being like, meh our charts that I understand being annoying, but like, you have to give them a little bit of slack of being annoyed.

Michelle 18:38

Yeah, no, I totally get it like I'm just messing but it really, I don't know, that kind of shit seems inconsequential to me. But it showed up and on alternative press' site and I was like, why they're not even like alternative at this point. They are legitimately the definition of pop. True. So that's where I'm at with that but you know It's

Kelly 19:01

it is what it is. In other news senses fail is making a pump pump clearly the wine is apparently I have like literally three sips of wine I can't say punk

Brianne 19:17

I'm not gonna lie though I heard census like the census like the thing we all do fill out the for the government I

Kelly 19:25

like the town census okay. Talking about the sense is what just happened oh this is going downhill so fast

Brianne 19:35

This is why we don't drink wine during recording

Kelly 19:38

I'm gonna just restart here we're gonna just rewind and other news senses fail is making a classic punk and emo covers record. Yeah, they are. I know. So I'm not like a huge senses fail listener. I this is actually sparking me to maybe listen To a little bit more of their music, but I feel like this idea in general is killer. I feel like cover. Cover albums in general are always so fun. And I think it's a good way to expand your listener base too, because then you get all of these listeners that want to hear your cover to a band song that they like. So it's actually that's how it's affecting me because I don't listen to them that often, but I am excited to hear some of their covers.

Michelle 20:32

Yeah, I haven't been an avid listener of senses fail for years. I've never been able to say their name by the way. I always add an extra s somewhere. But since but uh, no, they they're from Jersey actually. And so that's part of the reason why I grew up on them a little bit, but you know, I call you all cars. It was one of my like,

Brianne 20:58

Oh my god, you Yes, I it was one of those things I literally was like, why do I know that name like senses fail? I looked at my phone like, Oh shit, they I have three songs on my phone from them. And I'm like, Oh, these are fucking bangers.

Michelle 21:11

You're like, Oh yeah, I actually you know what I did like them. I did like them back in is probably I

Brianne 21:16

saw them at Warped Tour one year or something and I like wrote down their name and I looked up like a couple songs. That's probably what ended up happening.

Michelle 21:22

But now they're a great band and I'm really looking forward to a cover album from them because I'm sure they'll have like great takes on some classics, so it's gonna be a good one for sure.

Brianne 21:31

So there's a couple like Cliff Notes under the same heading. So hayley williams we all know that the lead singer of paramore has decided to go solo for now, I don't know if it's for now or if it's for good, but she's released a couple different singles. One currently being crap over yet I think was the name of it.

Michelle 21:51

Something like that. I don't like the name. yet. So

Brianne 21:56

almost all of the songs that she has released. I've been very much like These are interesting. Like they don't have most of them don't have the standard song structure with like, verse chorus verse bridge or first chorus bridge, you know chorus. So it's been, it's weird to listen to like, they're not bad, but all of them I'm just like, I don't know if I can get into it. This is probably the closest ones I've gotten into like, okay, I kind of can get into this guy. Like it's not it's not like paramore level good. Like, I mean, obviously, they evolve, but, um, so it's just the lyrics that are weird. Like, the melody is great, but the lyrics I'm just like,

Michelle 22:41

yeah, yeah, and I know you. All of us were, because we're not like kind of musically gifted, where we relate to lyrics more. So that's obviously important for you, but you know, yeah, the previous song, I wasn't really feeling the previous single she'd released, but this one I was really digging you gave me that 80s vibe that they kind of had going paramore had going in after laughter it like it honestly you know what it made me think of Cyndi Lauper. That's who I was thinking this entire time. I was listening to that. Yeah, I should get a major Cyndi Lauper vibes.

Brianne 23:14

Alright y'all you you out there in the world you guys listen to the song You sound off on our social media of what you guys think of her new stuff @themoshpitpod on Facebook and Instagram.

Michelle 23:26

And @moshpitpod on Twitter.

Brianne 23:28

There we go. Um, I need to learn our social handles is really bad. Also under the hayley williams umbrella recently she posted on her Instagram story her I don't know if you'd call it covering it's her singing along with the Used's crap that was name of the song

Michelle 23:50

taste of ink

Brianne 23:51

the taste of ink I'm looking here at my head like no no no you the whole thing which is ironic because I actually related part of all time lows album to the same song. So there's that I do teasers

Kelly 24:04

teaser I feel like I know what you're talking about.

Brianne 24:06

Right? Um, anyway, so she on her Instagram story posted a little snippets of her singing along with it and I closed the goddamn article. Basically it was like saying something about like caption was for the guy who says I don't sound like my old self or something or misses my old stuff or something like that. And it's her just like rocking out in the mirror taking a selfie video of her singing along with the song which like, I mean, I'm down with it was cool.

Michelle 24:32

Yeah, no, I loved it. It was so cute. She is fucking adorable.

Brianne 24:36

I love her I just want to be her friend. Anyways, and then so the final note under this umbrella is that she actually recently will I don't know how recently it was me she might have better idea about when it was released.

Michelle 24:51

good dye young. Oh, that was a couple years back. I think that's

Brianne 24:54

Oh, really? I didn't know it was that old shit.

Michelle 24:56

Okay. Oh 2016 Jesus Christ. Yeah, 4 year anniversary That's what it is.

Brianne 25:01

Oh god. Okay, well, it's been four years since Hayley Williams released the good dye young aka hair dye. It's like overtone kind of basically where you like put it in your hair and you can wash it out kind of deal, right? Or is it legit hair dye?

Michelle 25:16

There's legit dye there's a semi permanent dye and poser paste, which I bought. And we're gonna play with that the next couple of weeks while I'm in quarantine and you know, I don't have to be professional at a job even though I don't think my job cared but you know, you try to look appropriate.

Brianne 25:34

So along with that whole situation since its launch, the band has the brand got the words, take the wine away from her. I haven't even finished my first glass this is a problem. Since its launched, the brand has been warned by a number of musicians including lights choice of on skipping over that one cuz it says potentially 21 pilots drummer has also worn it. He's about He's a brand ambassador. Josh Dunn is a brand ambassador for it. So that's fun. Yeah, so I feel like that's a fun little tidbit about the fact that she's had this now for four years and apparently I live under a rock. Did you know that? Um,

Michelle 26:15

well, we knew that Bri.

Brianne 26:17

I know you. We all know that Brianne doesn't know things.

Michelle 26:21

Well, for anybody out there who hasn't tried good dye younh. I'm, like I said, I mean, I'm not going to do the permanent dye. Because I've just fucked up my hair recently. And my my hair can't take any more bleaching and dye. So I'm gonna do the poser paste and I will, you know, give some feedback, but it's really cute and exciting all the colors, so I'm really stoked to do it.

Kelly 26:42

We'll check back in with Michelle in coming episodes to see how her hair turns out. We'll also have very exciting posts on social.

Michelle 26:52

Again, check us out @themoshpitpod on Facebook and Instagram and you might see some pictures. Whoo, whoo.

Kelly 27:00

All right, another piece of music news for you, neck deep, has released their next single off of all distortions are intentional and it's called when you know, and the song is sort of like a classic punk love song. I would, I would maybe categorize that as, um, but along with the release of the song they also released a lyric video with fan submitted videos that we talked about on the last episode. The video came out really cool, definitely go check it out within the video. There were tons of cameos from some other band members that you may know. And Ben Barlow himself the lead singer of neck deep was also in it a little bit, along with Pierre from simple Plan. Derek and Ryan from state champs, the lead singer Jake from between you and me and Alex Costello from Roam. Were also all in the video along with a lot of cameos from cute pets and babies. So definitely check out that lyric video.

Michelle 28:24

Yeah, and in terms of the song, I'm really digging it. It is not the old kind of neck deep like stuff off of life. Life's not out to get you right. It's a little bit more of the peace and the panic vibes. But I still dig it and I'm looking forward to the album for sure. And along with that, more new music to end on a happy note. New Found glory released a new song as well and I am I'm loving it and it was the song is shook by your shaved head which is so punk I think im saything this about this entire album was entire all the singles that have been released so far. But ya know, they're they're all these singles are definitely very old school new found glory, you really get Jordan's vocals as the kind of centerpiece for them. And I honestly feel like I'm listening to sticks and stones. And it's just literally bringing me back to like it back in the day and I'm just super stoked for this and I don't think I can say stoked enough times. But yeah, it's gonna be incredible. And you know, I'm looking forward. You know, we just talked about two new release songs and I'm looking forward to forever and ever times infinity day, and I did it that time again, I'm so proud of myself. And then all distortions are intentional day. Those days are going to be tons of fun and Brianne's gonna learn some new music.

Brianne 30:02

Yay. Oh yeah, cheers, grandma. What's What's my name now? The scene grandma.

Kelly 30:10

Scene grandma. I thought it was punk rocker See?

Brianne 30:13

I'm already forgetting guys just like a grandma should

Michelle 30:16

cheers to the scene grandma and chill is a wake up sunshine yeah it is time for the wake up sunshine track by track Moshpit style fuck Yeah. Oh yo.

Brianne 30:36

We can actually swear now versus like the first album that we did a don't panic day we were on actual college radio so we couldn't.

Kelly 30:43

We had to use the Dump button so many times.

Michelle 30:46

So many guys. But it worked. We've all been looking forward to this. We're all super excited about it we've been bingeing, if you can apply that word to an album, but we have been all of wake up sunshine. I've listened to it so many times. And you know, we've gone over it a bit already, you know, we had the singles come out, it's their eighth album, they're all returning from side projects. Their last release was last young Renegade in 2017, as I've mentioned 1000 times because it was so long ago, and so we've all been starved for new music. So we, you know, devoured this and we're gonna go in order so we're gonna start off with some kind of disaster.

Kelly 31:27

And may I start by saying, What a fucking opening song. This is just like an anthem. It's we've talked about this song, a decent amount, it was their first single off of wake up sunshine. So when this came out, we obviously all freaked out and we're very, very excited but I feel like this one has, like remained one of my one of my favorites, even after listening to the whole entire album,

Michelle 31:58

Kel, would you say matured Like a fine wine

Kelly 32:02

um you know that's a very good take I would maybe say that or like a nice cheese even, you know one of those see so some kind of disaster I definitely get like an anthem feel from it and even like it my sister actually mentioned this kind of felt like old school Green Day vibe a little bit and listening back I kind of I could see where she was coming from on that but I think the the lyrics like connected really well to me and I just I really liked the message of the song and the guitar and drums on the verses were like so catchy, like you just want to scream this song all day long.

Michelle 32:48

So yeah, Kelly like you said, it you can really relate to it. But you know, when we talked about it before, I think it was Bri that said it's not only relevant in terms of the band and you know, the lyrics like, you know, It's It's my fault. What are the lyrics? It's all my fault. Yeah, yeah, it's all my fault.

Kelly 33:07

It's all my fault I'm still the one you want. exactly.

Michelle 33:09

But you know, it's also on an individual level like you can kind of relate to it in a relationship type way. And indeed, that's kind of the great thing about a song like this because you know it in its anthemic -nis that's a word. It's a it has so many interpretations and it makes it just like kind of all around hit.

Kelly 33:31

Totally. Yeah, that's how I felt to

Brianne 33:34

the only additional notes I'm gonna add is that the song is amazing when you're in the car and you want to scream and the bridge I think that whole like, lyric part is so fucking catchy and it hits home like so hard. And it reminds me like, don't get me wrong all time low has like some of the greatest bridges in our genre, but especially on this album, but this one kind of rivals Jasey Rae no we were talking about it with the tattoos the yeah Jasey Rae right I swear I'm not a lot yeah I've never told a lie and that makes me a liar. Okay got last time I fucked that up and I call it a no yeah you last time that this time you got it you learned your lesson okay. Yay. Um it rivals that in like just the creative like verbiage they use and everything I don't know it was just it was it was it was a it was a good good song good song.

Kelly 34:31

Good song good song

Brianne 34:33

every week it has everyone concluded there some kind of disaster conversation cool onto the next one we are on to sleeping in this one until the actual album came out was like my favorite. I was like this is there's nothing that's going to top this. It's the best there is one that ended up topping it, but we'll save that for later. Um, I personally thought about it. That the weekend it came out was the same weekend that one of my friends Who's getting married and anytime I hear it all I can think of is that weekend where slate Slayton my boyfriend he drove me and him to they're like welcome party the night before and I got drunk and he just kept letting me put the song on i swear in a 15 minute drive we listened to it the entire time over and over again so that way I could learn the lyrics. Now he sucks at learning lyrics and he learned them faster than I did. I was a little impaired so obviously that gives him a little bit

Michelle 35:31

you're at a disadvantage Yeah,

Brianne 35:33

that's fair. I also I love the fact that this whole songs chorus want to listen to Britney whole situation is literally based off of jack has a Britney Spears sweatshirt. Yeah. And that's how they talked about it in the livestream. The day the day the album was released about how like, Oh, that's what inspired the song and I'm like, that's pretty awesome. Because see, I love that Britney Spears Also conspiracy theory part one and I have like a bunch about this album um all time low star to Corona because the lyric oh I agree I agree haven't left your place in days Postmates and dirty laundry if that does not describe our current life right now I don't know what the fuck does

Kelly 36:21

oh they predicted it

Brianne 36:22

they they knew and I can't so there's that oh also the drum solo in the bridge is fucking insane

Kelly 36:31


Brianne 36:32

on all time lows Instagram they posted a video of the entire song just drums like oh dang but like sick dude oh my god the bridge is just so great with it.

Michelle 36:44

And yes, seeing that play through on Instagram made me you know since we're in quarantine, why not pick up a new skill I actually I bought on Amazon a pair practice pads and drumsticks and I'm looking at like video Like oh my god like it's like the first step and you know if I if I can really feel like I'm getting the hang of it I might get a cheap drum kit and continue oh my god practice

Kelly 37:09

your family will hate you. Oh absolutely love

Michelle 37:15

Well so uh, I agree I completely agree with you like this song for me was you know there's tons of dope songs on the album but and better songs honestly even but for me this one was one of the ones that hit me the hardest, I think. I mean, me and Bri have said before we grew up with all time low, we had our big moments defined by their music and you know, this is my big moment song for me. I've definitely kind of grown into more of an adult since my early days with all time low, you know, jobs, debt responsibilities, all that nonsense. Stuff that crushes your soul. Exactly. And you know, in life can be stressful. But you know, this song like, you know, taking that time to be in those happy moments where the pressures off and you know, you've called out of work, you're staying home and sleeping in You know I'm in a happy and healthy relationship for the first time in years and years and years. Those moments you know where you know we don't sleep but sleep in are the best and you know they make everything else in life not matter and that's why I think for me this is a like, despite the rest of the album being fantastic. This is still one of the better songs for me because it's a it's a big moment song.

Brianne 38:24

Great, yeah, it really coincides with like, where I think all of our lives are right now we're both in all three of us are in happy functioning, relationships versus like, I mean, Kelly's been a functioning relationship forever. Versus me and Michelle have gone through our our share of frogs if you will,

Michelle 38:41

hot messes.

Brianne 38:44

I was trying to be I was trying to be polite,

Kelly 38:45

but you know, no need for that. Yeah, I this is just an absolute banger of a song like plus it. I mean, it's a banger in general, but like when you can connect to a song in that way. Like, I think we all do. It just makes it like that much better. But it's just like, the carefree, I guess, like, feeling of the song is just like just I think what I needed right now. And one of the things that made it even better, like when I first heard it, I didn't love it, I think as much as you both did, because I didn't know the words and like one of my favorite things is like singing along to songs and like, I couldn't fucking do it. Like I couldn't do it, because I didn't know the words. And so one of the best moments was when I like finally learned every word to the song and I could just like sing it and yell it and it just is that perfect like windows down song once you know all the words and can actually sing it. So I thought that was really awesome. And then this was also the song where I noticed like the first easter egg of the album and so Alex kind of talked about this but throughout the album, there's like Kind of Easter eggs hinting back to some of all time lows older or past albums so obviously post mates and dirty laundry referring back to their single off of last young Renegade. So I that just like I love stuff like that it makes it more interesting and it brings you back to some of their old stuff.
