Dance, Dance

Album: From Under The Cork Tree (2005)
Charted: 8 9
  • In typical Fall Out Boy fashion, the singer has some conflicted feelings for the girl in this song. Here's an interpretation:
    He's had some very emotional experiences with this girl, but on this particular night, he wants to detach from his feelings and just have a good time with her, as he thinks it "Can't get much worse." He dances with her (could be literal or figurative), and his plan seems to be working, although he is still filled with anger as he tells her, "why don't you show me a little bit of spine you've been saving for his mattress." Sounds like she has another boyfriend, and he's not happy about it. >>

  • Katrina Bowden, who is best known as Cerie in the NBC sitcom 30 Rock, appeared in the song's music video. The actress also made an appearance on Law and Order SVU and her involvement in the drama led to Patrick Stump spending a couple of days on the show. He explained to AbsolutePunk how this happened: "Well, basically I met this girl on the set of the 'Dance, Dance' video, she was my love interest in the 'Dance, Dance' video, she's on 30 Rocknow, but at the time she was just the girl in the video. So I saw her on Law and Order and I jokingly said to Bob [McLynn, manager], 'Hey, if she can be on Law and Order maybe I can get on Law and Order as well,' and it ended up happening. I was a total fan, so I kept it going, I was like, 'Let's do this, I wanna do this.' They flew me out and I got to be an actor for 2 days, so that was cool."

  • Patricus Rexus from NoybTiming is pretty sharp. This band has some rhythm. Wish they would have went further down this path versus some of the stuff off their last album which was an attempt to fill the void left by one direction or something.
  • Isadora from Tramandaí, BrazilLol "hot lamb"? "don't know how your voice is"? You guys are so creative.
