banjo parts!

Um, so, I dunno how obsessive you all are, but I’ve literally found every song Patrick Stump’s voice has ever been on (and there’s a lot). And I listed the ones that are particularly awesome, in case anyone wants to listen to something new

  • Everything is Alright by Motion City Soundtrack (2006). I literally adore this song, so much. Patrick sings backing vocals, and then a prominent bit right after the instrumental part towards the end. Also, Mark Hoppus is in the video.
  • Cupid’s Chokehold by Gym Class Heroes (2005/2007). This song is awesome, and Patrick does the chorus, and is in both of the vids. I think most of you guys have heard it, but it’s still a great song, even if you’re not a fan of hip hop.
  •  One and Only by Timbaland (2007). I fucking adore this song. It’s so good. It’s mostly Patrick singing, and he says ‘fucking’, and nghh, love this song. To be despised…
  • Clothes Off! by Gym Class Heroes (2007). Again, P. Steezy (Travie McCoy’s nickname for him, eheh) did the chorus. He’s not in the video :c But pre-split Panic! is! In animal suits! (Patrick is good friends with these guys, and he also did a cover of Billionaire with Travie before, as well as The Fighter and Stereo Hearts, all popular songs you probably heard on the radio at some point. Look those up if you want.)
  • Jock Powerviolence by Weekend Nachos (2011). Okay, so this is Soul Punk!Patrick screaming, and it’s fucking hot. Look it up. Please.
  • Second Chances by October Fall (2006). I honestly love this song; it’s really good and Patrick has his own part towards the end right before the awesome banjo part.
  • Don’t Wake Me Up by The Hush Sound (2006). Patrick produced this album. It’s really good - they’ve got a really unique sound that I really like. If you like it too, I suggest Lighthouse. Anyway, this is the only song Patrick’s on; his vocals are apparent right after the breakdown.
  • Everyday by Buddy Holly (cover) (2011). This was for some tribute album but the song is cute and Patrick is flawless and there’s a vid and yeah.
  • One of THOSE Nights (2008). This song is perfect. Brendon’s on it too. Pete’s in the video. It’s just kinda awesome. I listen to it all the time.
  • King of Wishful Thinking by New Found Glory (2007). This is like a duet, and it’s fabulous.
  • Bounce by The Cab (2008). Patrick’s in the video (oh my God, watch it right now; he’s so fabulous), and he does backing vocals, so.
  • I’m a Wonder by The Cab (2008). Patrick produced this album too. This song is swaggy, and Stumpman’s voice is distinct near the end. The backing vocals should never outshine the lead singer, but they kinda do. Really do.
  • Dancing With the Devil by Krewella (2013). This song is awesome, I love it. It’s techno-y and stuff.
  • I Stand Alone by Robert Glasper (2013). The piano on this is awesome, and I love the Common feature too. Patrick’s cute in the video and the making of. 
  • Open Happiness by -read description- (2009). This is for Pepsi or Coca-Cola or something, but it’s so catchy and happy, and the video is adorable, and Brendon and Travie are in it, and Janelle Monae and Cee-Lo Green, and yeahh, this song is cool. Patrick also did the famous Coca-Cola whistle; isn’t that cool?
  • Like, every song on ¡Viva La Cobra! by Cobra Starship (2007). Patrick produced the album, and did backing vocals on every track, and I literally love this album so much. I own it. I recommend Guilty Pleasure (Patrick’s voice is hella distinct and you can hear it near the end), Scandalous (he’s on the last chorus - s c a n d to the a to the l o u s), Smile for the Paparazzi (the gRUNTY PART IS PATRICK AND MY GOD IT’S EAR SEX AHH), and My Moves are White (the whole last minute is Patrick alone, and I love that last minute more than anything, ever). 

There’s other songs, but I don’t like them as much. I’ll put them anyway, ‘cause maybe you have slightly different taste than me.

  • One Day I’ll Stay Home by Misery Signals (2006). If you’re into that screamo shit, this is for you, and Pete’s on there too, I think. Patrick’s singing though.
  • You’re Not in on the Joke by Cobra Starship (2009). Apparently, all these bandom people are on this song, but I don’t hear them. I guess during the group singing part?
  • Feet Don’t Fail by Claude Kelly (2010). This is some pop shit I really don’t like. But eh. And y'know that one post that says ‘you can literally hear the sideburns when you listen to old fob’? Yeah, well, this is the last time you can hear the sideburns, I think. 'Trick does the hook.
  • The Last Hero by XV (2011). Some rapper I’ve never heard of, and I know most every rapper. Cute hobbit man does chorus. 
  • Bummed Out Blues by Murs (2011). I like the soul sound of this but idk. Rap again, guys. Patrick really liked hip hop in '11, I guess.
  • All Your Heart by Transit (2011). Yeah, I don’t like this. Patrick’s at the end. Pretty distinct.
  • If You Could Remember by Damnation A. D. (2007). More screamo shit, with Pete again. I love Patrick’s part in here though.
  • Birthday Girl by The Roots (2008). Not a big fan of this song, but 'Trick does the chorus.
  • Don’t Regret it Now by Tyga (2008). This fucker is a disgrace to rap - I had no idea he was signed to Pete’s label when he was a teenager until recently. Now he’s on Lil Wayne’s. But you-know-who produced his debut, and he did vocals on this song. The chorus is hella catchy, I’ll give it that, but only because it’s delivered by Patrick.
  • Est. (80’s Baby) by Tyga (2008). This shit’s annoying. Patrick’s on the last chorus but it’s kinda not worth it.
  • That’s What It Takes, Dear by Kristeen Young (2008). This song is a mess, but Patrick’s voice sounds so fucking smooth and soothing.
  • Blinded by the Sun by Gym Class Heroes (2008). This has a reggae feel, and I actually like it a little. Patrick’s in the last minute, doing backing vocals.

Sing till the sun goes down

A commission for @parts-and-services @felinesyndr0me ^w^ one I loved drawing. It had been a while since I had made a complex drawing with shadings and painting style. but I loved it, and I love this artwork. so here you go Feline ^^

the characters are Russell and Helen rabbit.

… but there were always a handful of sheep at this place now. Strays would turn up there, and lambs would find their way to it what they’d lost their mothers.

This was a magic place.

There wasn’t much to see now, just the iron wheels sinking into the turf and the pot-bellied stove with its short chimney …

Watching Sufjan Stevens videos on YouTube. On his albums he plays most of the instruments and it amuses me that it seems like for some songs he keeps switching up which part he actually wants to play live.

Playing the banjo part in “Jacksonville”
Playing the electric guitar part in “Jacksonville”
Playing the piano part in “Jacksonville”

And then he’ll switch up the instrumentation on his songs all the time too

Playing “Concerning the UFO…” on celeste (though that was apparently not his original intention)
Playing “Concerning the UFO…” on piano
Playing “Concerning the UFO…” on acoustic guitar

Playing “Chicago” on piano
Playing “Chicago” on acoustic guitar
Playing “Chicago” on synthesizer
Playing “Chicago” on tambourine (…really, playing a tambourine part on the “piano” version)

Playing “John Wayne Gacy Jr.” on acoustic guitar
Playing “John Wayne Gacy Jr.” on pump organ

it just goes on and on

this is the kind of stuff that makes him an easy musician to obsess about
