If you ever managed to get over yourself long enough to enjoy the power-pop perfection that is Fall Out Boy then you know Patrick Stump well. He is the voice and the music behind fame-hungry Pete Wentz and has just ventured out on a solo project that will see his Soul Punk LP drop early next year. “Spotlight” is his first single and in a nod to the internet fans that made him famous he is letting us vote on which of two versions we prefer. I think I like the “(Oh Nostalgia)” version better, for it’s tempered pace and distant percussion. Either way “Spotlight” is a nice slice of motivational-songwriting that keeps Fall Out Boy’s sugar but loses a little of their spice. I’m curious where the rest of this project will take him.

Spot on. I’ve always like Stump’s voice, even when I “stopped liking” (progressed in musical taste?) Fall Out Boy.
I am enjoying your music blog so much. I don’t regularly follow music blogs (I found yours about a billion clicks ago via hypem.com)
I decided that as much as I am enjoying it, maybe I should let you know, although I don’t have any thing specific to say. This is keeping me up from studying. It’s alright.
Thanks Natasha, your post inspired me to throw in From Under The Cork Tree this morning and I had one of the most rowdy tooth brushing sessions I’ve had in years! Awesome!
I hope you stay with us and discover some great jams to keep you company on those late study nights!
