If you had told me a year ago that my most frequently played song was something by Dashboard Confessional, I would have told you to take your white ass back across 8 Mile. But here it is in 2003 and I'm not afraid to admit that I really, really dig this "Hands Down" song. Even despite the embarassing "won't you kill me" chorus (doesn't that sound like the ultimate emo parody?) there's something about the song that really gets to me. Maybe it has to do with the fact that he's got a full electric band behind him, or that the melody is just really good, or maybe I've just been in the kind of mood lately where I can identify with really whiny, sappy music.

I still wouldn't go to one of their shows, although I will probably see them at the Bridge School Benefit later this month. At least at that show, no one will know their songs and you won't have that annoying sing/screamalong with all the teenage girls.
