  • lOve.
  • Britney's cover is worth to listen
  • Cool.
  • still ♥ it

  • Fall Out Boy brought me here. Such memories regarding this track btw, the "do do do" part I remember from a comic award show's 2007 edition where five dudes dressed as ladies and sang the parody of Weird Al Yankovic's "Polka Your Eyes Out". Should say this in "Polka Your Eyes Out" shoutbox but since it's once again thanks to Fall Out Boy's newest single, I was looking forward to remember this song and here goes.
  • It was the hit in the school disco at elementary school :) Good old days!
  • 1996 !!! Maybe older? Hard to believe!
  • Well fall out boy sampled the song to their new song Centuries
