Panic at the Disco began recording material for their third studio album, Vices & Virtues in spring 2009. However, on July 6, 2009, Ryan Ross and Jon Walker announced via the band's official website that they were exiting the band leaving singer/multi-instrumentalist Brendon Urie and drummer Spencer Smith to continue as a duo. This track originated as an idea that the quartet came up with before they broke up. "That's the only idea we had from before we split," Smith told AOL. "All we had was the music, and we could never figure out what to do with it. We loved it as a guitar and drum line, but we were able to figure it out, write a chorus for it and turn it into a song that I really love. We actually have a kids choir singing at the end of it, so that's just one song I'm totally proud of."
Aj from Trenton, Nji really love this song. I'm glad Brendon and Spencer are still making music even though they don't have Jon and Ryan. Nearly Witches is my favorite song off this album. Love this band!
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
