Well, the time has come for everyone to mock my top 25 songs. Enjoy!
25. Pieces – Sum 41 (50) NEW
This is a stereotypical emo song with a good, but sad hook. Perfect for bad romance, but just as good for happy romance because you can say “hahahaha look at you sad emo kid, you are so sad and I am not. That is so funny”
One Line That Instantly Made Me A Fan Of The Song: I tried to be perfect, but nothing was worth it
24. Ladies and Gentlemen – Saliva (50) NEW
The theme of the 2007 Dew Tour and Team Winded episode 9. This is a great song to amp you up. If you are ever driving and this song comes on, your speed is guaranteed to go up by 15%
OLTIMMAFOTS: Can’t really point to a single line here, it is more how they are delivered that is the catch.
23. Love You ‘Til the End – The Pogues (50) NEW
Here is your first chance to make fun of me. And you will get a lot of fuel, so I will gloss over the details rather quickly:

22. Giving Up On Love – The Ataris (50) NEW
See Pieces. Another fantastic break-up song. And anything The Ataris do is awesome. Random side note: Joe Rutko used to tell me I looked like the lead singer. Random Side Note 2: I am awarding Joe Rutko with the award for the person we used to associate with that was the least like us. How the hell did we ever get sucked into that trap…
OLTIMMAFOTS: You fall in love, then break your heart, then fall in love again, it’s never ending
21. I Won’t Spend Another Night Alone – The Ataris (50) Previously #13
The polar opposite of the previous Ataris song. That is what’s great about emo bands. They are bi-polar and have a song to fit all your moods
OLTIMMAFOTS: The things you make me wanna do. I’d rob a quik-e-mart for you. I’d go to the pound and let all the cats go free. Just as long as you’d be with me.
20. Makedamnsure – Taking Back Sunday (50) Previously #25
OLTIMMAFOTS: You are everything I want, because you are everything I’m not
19. Amazed – Lonestar (51) Previously #24
OLTIMMAFOTS: Don’t know how you do what you do. I’m so in love with you. It just keeps getting better.
18. I Miss You – Incubus (51) Previously #23
OLTIMMAFOTS: To see you when I wake up. Is a gift I didn’t think could be real.
17. When I’m With You – Faber Drive (51) Previously #23
OLTIMMAFOTS: When I’m with you, I’ll make every second count, ’cause I miss you, whenever you’re not around
16. Song for a Mix Tape – The Ataris (51) NEW
Like John Cusack in High Fidelity would tell you, making a mix tape is an art form. TO be honest, I’m not very good at it, but I make a ton. But recording a song for a mix tape, is like making a movie where you receive an Oscar for making this movie…I think
OLTIMMAFOTS: Falling for you was the easy thing to do, If only somehow I could make you hang around
15. Jersey – Mayday Parade (52) NEW
Mayday Parade is awesome. I’m not even going to say anything else.
OLTIMMAFOTS: I’ll be fine I swear, I’m just gone beyond repair
14. If All Else Fails – Matchbook Romance (52) Previously #6
OLTIMMAFOTS: If all else fails, you can look up at the sky because it’s the same one that shines above you and I. And if all else fails you can close your eyes and I’ll be right besides you
13. Overrated – Jak Paris (53) Previously #7
OLTIMMAFOTS: Used to be so hesitant, now I am the president of the geek squad that kicked you ass to the curb
12. Definitely Maybe – FM Static (53) Previously #10
OLTIMMAFOTS: I met a girl named Tara
11. Boston – Augustana (54) NEW
Some one must have told the lead singer of Augustana that Boston is nice in the summer. He was misinformed. Summer is Red Sox season, the Red Sox are insufrable, as are their fans. In fact, as I type this I am watching them lose in the ALCS and it is great.
OLTIMMAFOTS: I think I need a sunrise, I’m tired of the sunset
10. I Can Wait Forever – Simple Plan (55) Previously #8
OLTIMMAFOTS: When you call my heart stops beating, when your gone it won’t stop bleeding.
9. All The Same – Sick Puppies (55) Previously #11
As I type THIS, the Red Sox fans are filing out of Fenway in the seventh inning
OLTIMMAFOTS: I don’t mind, I don’t care, as long as you’re here
8. Iris – Goo Goo Dolls (56) NEW
The theme of City of Angels is a great song. The boys named Goo have been a solid band since their debut in the 90s.
OLTIMMAFOTS: You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be
7. The Last Song I Will Ever Write About A Girl – The Ataris (56) NEW
Another song Ataris song about a reoccuring topic
OLTIMMAFOTS: Why don’t I ever seem to learn, that love is all wrong and girls are fucking evil
6. Jersey Rae – All Time Low (57) Previously #5
OLTIMMAFOTS: I’ve never told a lie, and that makes me a liar, I’ve never made a bet, but we gamble with desire, I’ve never lit a match, with intent to start a fire, but recently the flames, are getting out of control.
5. And My Name is Dignan, So What – Day at the Fair (59)
OLTIMMAFOTS: They’ll wonder how good it can get… Much better than this.
I hear from your friends you’re still alive, I guess I wasted those wishes on nothing
4. Last Train Home – Ryan Star (61) NEW
The highest debut on the new list comesfromanothersongfromPSILoveYouso
OLTIMMAFOTS: We were only kids, we ran like water, your father said “stay away from my daughter”
3. Fever Dream – Tyler Bates (62) Previously #3
A pure instrumental song from the movie the 300. Will get you adequately pumped up and plus, everyone needs a song on their iPod that will make you want to kill a butt load of Persians.
2. Bittersweet – Radio Racer (66) Previously #2
OLTIMMAFOTS: You cut me off but you’ve got nothing to show for I took the fall but it wasn’t enough
1. Far Away – Nickelback (90) Previously #1
That does it for this edition of make fun of Rick’s song choice. That wasn’t as lame as last time, but there was a heavy dose of depressing emo songs.
