Jimmy Eat World's, "A Praise Chorus"
The Song Lyrics:
Our house in the middle of the street,
Why did we ever meet?
Started my rock 'n' roll fantasy.
Don't, don't, don't let's start,
Why did we ever part?
Kickstart my rock 'n' roll heart.
Song They Mention:
"Our House" by Madness; "Why Did We Ever Meet?" by The Promise Ring; "Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy" by Bad Company; "Don't Let's Start" by They Might Be Giants; and "Kickstart My Heart" by Motley Crue. Whew!
