JDIZZY's 365 # 214: Folkin' Around

Folkin' Around - Panic At The Disco (2008)

At first listen, this song sounds like a cover of a Dylan/Band outtake that you never heard. Then, you realize its those guys from the circus wedding video. I cannot praise Panic's second album Pretty. Odd. enough. It is the sound of emo punks discovering their parent's record collection and being blown away. If this album had come out in the late sixties, it would have been huge. Instead, it was a moderate hit that met with much critical success. It's a shame the band splintered after its release into Panic! and The Young Veins. I would loved to have seen where this foursome could have gone. The direction they were heading in was pop rock perfection.
