    Default Hey There Delilah

    How are you?

    I hope all is well.

    I am writing to you today because I need to ask you something. A question that has been eating away at me for quite some time now.

    When will this stop?

    Please make it stop.

    Can you make it stop?

    I am afraid that it won't stop. I am afraid that it might be too late now.

    Because I hear him calling to you twenty times a day. And I don't listen to the radio. And I don't watch the TV. I rarely go to the grocery store and I get my restaurant food to go. Still I hear him calling to you across the miles. A thousand of them, he says. Picturing you smiling and dancing and finally living in the middle of Times Square. Though I have never met you, Delilah, I can almost see your face myself. You ARE beautiful. And though the words that he uses to express this are often hackneyed and corny, I can still tell that he means it. He really does. And now like a ghost, you haunt my every waking hour. Delilah. While I am washing the dishes. Delilah. While I am doing the laundry. Do you think maybe you could just pick up the phone and you know, just give him a call? I know he's waiting for one. Just say hello. Help him get his shit together. And if you don't feel the same, please, PLEASE let him know. Cause now it's affecting MY life. A hit single is one thing, but this is getting ridiculous. Please Delilah. For me. For my kids. I need back the serenity I once knew. You are making my life unmanageable. I can't take it anymore.

    Thank you for your concern in this matter. Really. Thanks. Good luck with school. And take care of yourself okay? You have obviously been through a lot here.

    Thanks again.

    Your friend,

    Mob

    Hahahahah oh man. So many memories with the PWTs. I never thought they'd get big enough to where I could actually say I used to hang out with them and have it mean anything. My friend and I used to go out to dinner with them all the time at Swingers and they would come to our hotel parties and we'd go to their house to hang out and watch them record their album. Now they have a song that is affecting Mob's life. Amazing. Delilah was actually interviewed in People magazine. She was pretty cute. She seemed to love the attention it brought her, and they don't speak anymore, and it wasn't even a relationship in the first place. She was too young for him or something. Fuckin Tom. He is such a geek. It seriously weirds me out to hear them all over the place. At movie theaters and shit. We used to go clothes shopping with these guys.

    my daughter likes them I think. or she used to but doesn't anymore. I can't keep it straight. She also has a signed Boys Like Girls poster in her room, cuz they played our little high school a year or two ago, and I know she doesn't like them anymore but she keeps the poster up cuz you know, it's signed.

    I had a signed Slipknot cd a few years ago. I sold it to some metal head at my old high school for like $2.

    Thank you Tessa.

    Also I don't hate the song. It's got a sweet little naive first love sentiment. I just can't get away from the goddamned thing. It's become this omnipresent fixture in my life. I can't get away from it. Like I hear it when I'm on hold. I hear it when the FedEx guy pulls up, I hear it in my fucking sleep. Make it stop already. It's enough.

    FYI, it is not played everywhere all the time as I have never heard of this song. Additionally, I will not be watching the video to alleviate my ignorance as I've already had Umbrella stuck in my fucking head for the last 3 weeks.

    I like how Hannah instictively knew the part I was referring to. You go girl.

    Also "Umbrella" will be Pitchfork's song of the year. Bet on it.
