Now Served With Synth
Fall Out Boy is now back from a hiatus dating back to 2010.
Possibly creating one of the longest titles in song history (if you know of any longer ones list them in the comments section), their new track is ‘My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)’.
I was never really a fan because they simply weren’t my type of music, but now, these guys are making a come back sound fierce. ‘My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)’ didn’t make a huge splash on the charts but I think this song would have lit the world on fire maybe 5 years ago (right before the dance craze).
It has catchy lyrics especially at the bridge and chorus. They are easy to remember, ‘Light Em Up, Light Em Up, Ohhhh…Ohhhh’. See!
What’s even awesome-r (is that even a word?) is the pairing with 2 Chainz. They knew the fast way to current cool is featuring a rapper and they literally took that step and foreshadowed a hip hop involvement with their video.

Yup, they are wrecking the band’s gear…and maybe later…the band themselves!
Fall Out Boy then delivered the ultimate follow up with a 2 Chainz remix. So awesome!
And it sounds equally as good as the original. Just dim down the guitar and lather it with synths. This is what the definition of a true remix is. The original should be preserved but given a second image with more than a vocal addition.
Fall Out Boy Feat. 2 Chainz – My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up) (Remix)
Big props up to Fall Out Boy and 2 Chainz. A great track both original and new. Now that’s music and creativity. My only gripe would be Fall Out Boy’s album title.
Here’s what it looks like:
‘Saving Rock And Roll’. Would a remix with one of the currently popular rappers really save Rock and Roll? Is this a trick to start controversy?
What do you think?
