I agree with this part.
I think it would have fit in pretty well. Like, a lot of it, well at least part, is about his reaction to the record leaking (I think)..."I finally broke on Christmas Eve / In an Outback Steakhouse bathroom / While my family ordered for me." Pretty sure that's about the leak of the record cause that happened on Christmas Eve and he told me a similar story the first time I interviewed him. And the rest is lyrics just like the rest of The Upsides. I don't know, I think it fits in with the realist pop punk theme perfectly.

I'm with you on there, it definitely fits lyrically. But the song brings back the keys and that's where I don't think it fits, haha.

True. I really like the sound they add though. So excited for them to have that back....he plays it live on some of the upsides songs and it sounds great.

Glad people like the song. As I've been saying in interviews, etc, this song and the others on the re-release don't really fit the record and that's on purpose. The idea of a re-release gave us the chance to do things we wouldn't normally do. I don't think they represent a "direction" we're going or anything to that effect. It was an opportunity to try our hand at something we wouldn't on an album. I really like this song and it meant a lot to me to write.

Thanks for letting us have the exclusive man, I was so stoked on that. People at Hopeless are really cool to work with.

Also, sorry for the off-topic post but there's a chance Soupy is looking at this thread.

Soupy or someone else from TWY, have you guys ever thought of making like a guitar tab booklet and including it with like a preorder package or something? I would pay a fuckload of money to be able to play Upsides from front to back, and I bet I'm probably not alone. Your ultimateguitar tab page sadly is lacking =(
