According to an interview with the band, the new My Chemical Romance album (called The Black Parade) will feature legendary vocal performer Liza Minnelli on their song, “Mama”. Yup, LIZA MINNELLI. Believe me, I couldn’t even make this stuff up if I wanted to.
Also, for those who think that pop punk is not their thing and have dismissed My Chemical Romance based on the fact that they’ve been on Warped Tour–I encourage you to listen to this live version of “I Don’t Love You”, one of the songs off their new album. I think you’ll be surprised to find that you might like it…perhaps you’ll even love it.
If you like Queen, David Bowie, or Supertramp, you might really dig this song. I think it’s a brilliant turn for the band and really shows how much they’ve matured as a group. It really showcases their great songwriting ability and proves they can write straight up beautiful pop songs.
