WHY DID I NOT KNOW THIS WHY DID I NOT BOTHER TO KNOW HOW NATE REUSS LOOKED LIKE BEFORE WHY DID I EVER STOP LISTENING TO NEW MUSIC JEEEBUS I AM REALLY UPSET RIGHT NOW.
Was listening to The Format, a band I do rather enjoy and was thinking ‘The lead singer from Fun. sounds awful like this guy.’ Hoped onto Wikipedia, same lead singer. The lead signer from The Format, Nate Ruess, left the band and joined Fun. in 2008 after The Format split up.
I knew there was a reason I liked Fun. ;) Ruess’ voice is just stunning!
Nate Reuss has SUCH a unique voice. Like I absolutely LOVE the format. And when I heard Walking the Dog, I was like… This voice sounds familiar. The Format? The Maine? It was the band that sang Oceans and the “I love love. I love being in love. I don’t care what it does to me” song…
*looks in iTunes*
THE FORMAT. Yes. I wonder if they like broke up and the lead made a new band?
*looks at YouTube and Wiki*
OH MY GOSH HE IS.
So this was the first time this has happened to me. Actually knowing who was singing the song just because he sounded like another band. And I actually thought The Format were still together because.. well. I don’t keep up with my bands (except for one!) I just assume everyone’s still together.
So Nate, you have a very unique voice. I could pinpoint you from one of the first songs I’ve ever heard from Fun. And now that I know it, I can’t not hear The Format. Fun will always and forever be the new Format because… I liked the Format.
Okay. I’m going to start listening to my Format songs now :)
I saw them years ago (maybe like 2004/2005) opening up for Taking Back Sunday. I had their EP.
Anyway….I always thought the band Fun sounded familiar.
Low and behold the lead singer of the Format is the lead singer of Fun.
MIND IS BLOWN
Oh my gosh. So today was the day that I found out that the lead singer from Fun. is the same guy as the lead from The Format!
Whenever I listen to Fun, I’m all this guy really sounds like The Format. Is it him? Eh, I’ll look it up later. But today, I was listening to Walking the Dog and I was just looking at the tags and I saw The Format as one of the tags and I’m all NO WAY. I TOTALLY CALLED IT. Freakin LOVE The Format. Because of that, Fun. just got way cooler :)
Dude. I remember away back in like middle school, my sister gave me her Format shirt. I will never forget my first band shirt :)
So I have recently fallen in love with the band fun. I just immediately fell in love with their percussion sound and they made me feel happy though there was always something kind of familiar about them.
So doing research for the band I found that they were on the label Fueled by Ramen which I…
