I'm in love with the new Fall Out Boy song, "What a Catch, Donnie." The song is really different from their past music. This only song I can think of that is a little close to it is "Golden" of their last album, "Infinity on High." Both songs show off Patrick Stump's melodic voice, but this time there are many more instruments than just a piano. Not to mention more voices than just Patrick's. Towards the end the song is greatly built up and then slows down so that almost all you can hear is Elvis Costello singing "Headfirst Sliding into Cooperstown on a Bad Bet." The song then picks back up and as Patrick continues to sing, in the background you can hear the voices of singers from different Fueled by Ramen bands singing the choruses of older Fall Out Boy songs. These include Gabe Saporta, Travis McCoy, Brendon Urie, Alex Deleon, Dough Neumann, and William Beckett. Even if you're someone who doesn't like Fall Out Boy I really think that you could enjoy this song. I just hope the rest of the album is this good.
