This year in songs: part 4 - Panic at the Disco

I doubt their sophomore effort, Pretty. Odd., did nearly as well as their debut, but Panic at the Disco took some chances and released a gutsy records by their standards. This is the first single and best song from that record. When I think about pop records, I like to pick out lines (usually vocal lines) that are purely pop and that I could never write. At about :52, Brandon (I think that's the singer's name) sings, "and I know that you feel it too" like an R & B song, and his inflection alone keeps me coming back. I can't tell you how many times I've listened to 9 in the Afternoon up to that point and shut it off.
