Dirty Little Secret

Obviously, not cool like Spoon - but damn if "Move Along" isn't one of the catchiest songs I've heard in a long time. That's right - I like an All-American Rejects song. Hell, I bought the whole album! But for now let's stick to the's got a great hook, great harmonies, and a fun shuffle-beat that will keep you bopping along - trust me. Plus there's the additional guilty pleasure of rocking out just knowing that you're listening to the All-American Rejects. Don't knock it 'till you've tried it.

To make the song truly ridiculous, there's even a dramatic middle bridge section with a children's chorus - completely over the top in epic emo-pop super-style. This is not for the faint of heart.

Now, I'd warn you away from the album unless you can meet the following criteria:
1. You like Jimmy Eat World (really just the songs "The Middle" and "Sweetness" will suffice)
2. You can remember a time in your life - fondly - when a power (pop) ballad was a meaningful thing, something you wouldn't necessarily mind revisiting
3. You have no problem with all of your friends making fun of you.
