The Horror Honeys: Hardcover Tuesday Jam - 'Cute Without the E'

Hardcover Tuesday Jam - 'Cute Without the E'

I will never ask if you don't ever tell me

I know you well enough to know you never loved me
And all of this was all your fault
I stay wrecked and jealous for this

For this simple reason

I just need to keep you in mind

As something larger than life

Emo bands are notorious for not only writing the occasional song based on books and films, but entire albums. So it's not all that surprising that one of Taking Back Sunday's most famous tracks is actually based on Shakespeare's classic tragedy, Othello. The entirety of this play, which I happen to consider the most tragic, is rooted in the damage done by jealousy, and that is what TBS crafted this song around as well. Whether or not the band's skateboarding riding, Chuck Taylor-wearing, needing-a-ride-to-the-mall-from-mom set of fans knew that, well, who knows? The song is still a emo-tastic tribute to the Bard! ~RH
