Say Anything - Every Man Has a Molly
When I first got this album I was in a relationship with a guy that I was off and on with like every three months.
So - I made up new lyrics to this. Title is “Every Girl has a *name redacted*” - but has five letters and also ends in a y sound. So naturally it was perfect.
It was super clever. I made it up one day walking to my internship where I incidentally worked for Say Anything. I remember being super excited to tell my fellow intern but he was not impressed.
Name redacted and I are friends now - maybe I’ll tell him about his song someday.
Today is SO a Say Anything - …. is a real boy day
I picked Woe - though it was a serious showdown between that and The Writhing South and Every Man Has a Molly. Maybe next week.
I picked Woe because it reminds me of something silly and insignificant.

Should he ask what got me through?
If he asks me, it was you.
You’re in my body, that’s where I think about you.
I’ve tried to fight my way through this album - I still don’t enjoy it but this song does stand out for me. Makes me cry emo tears. Ugh yes I did just admit that to the interwebs.
About Falling- Say anything
I don’t really give a damn about falling in love
I loved this song even before I knew it was Matt Skiba at the end. Ultimate win.
Say Anything - Belt (live from the Downtown 10/16/04 feat Andy Jackson of HRC, Jesse Lacey of BN, John Nolan and Will Noon of Straylight Run)
Edit: Yep still funny even without the visual.
The Downtown (RIP) 10/16/04 - Say Anything, Hot Rod Circuit, and Straylight Run.
I swear things from my past are slowly showing themselves again. One of my friends just linked me to this video because we were talking about the Downtown.
In a million concerts that I have ever went to this is in my Top 5 favorite moments for a ton of reasons. The reasons are super insignificant but hear me out.
At this exact moment Robyn, Lauren and I were discovering Say Anything. They were openers but everyone told us they were epic so we were sure to catch them. We were really there for Hot Rod Circuit who are probably one of my favorite bands ever. It was always so sad that they never were headliners and always opened for someone else.
At the end of Say Anything’s set I remember standing there in the bar and Jesse’s behind us and all of a sudden he’s gone and the audience started screaming. Then we look up and Andy, John, Will and Jesse are singing the ending of this song, Belt, with Max.
It was one of those moments where you’re like “Holy Crap this is epic…” I wish the video went on because it was ONLY getting good when it cuts off. I wish I could go back and get video from where I was standing. Every time this song comes up on my pod I attempt to recreate this moment with myself - alas it does not work.
The saddest thing about this is that never ever will this happen again. Like ever. At least with these guys. Bummer.
Thanks Sherri… (sidenote: thanks for ruining the new Say Anything album).
Some other randoms about this night:
Vin’s Misc cute friend: Hey nice shirt!
Me: Thanks! I made it myself.
VMCF: HAHA I can tell…..
(I may or may not have made a Rilo Kiley shirt under the haze of lots of alcohol a few nights prior.)
This was also RIGHT before the Red Sox winning the World Series but it this was the night they were playing the Yankees and if they lost they would have been out of it. Living in New York as a Red Sox fan wasn’t easy so I generally tried to stifle my loyalty - but Robyn was there visiting (my best friend and fellow Sox fans obvs) so all I needed was a little support and I brought the Boston out. While Straylight Run played I was making bets and putting my life on the line. BTW Red Sox won and went on to win the whole damn Series!
That is all I’m willing to admit about that night on an internet setting..
