Astronomy professor:Please explain the big bang theory.
Me:Our whole universe was in a hot dense state, then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started. Wait... the Earth began to cool, the autotrophs began to drool, Neanderthals developed tools, we built a wall, we built the pyramids!! Math, science, history, unraveling the mysteries, that all started with the big bang! HEY!
And now, here’s 15 minutes worth of snippets of most songs that Patrick Stump has provided guest or backing vocals for, as of late May, 2012.
Sources for song lists are here and here. Inspired by this post; I noticed there was a fair few missing so I took a stab at it.
Songs clipped, in chronological order…
Knockout’s album Searching for Solid Ground (2002). “Leaving Chicago” featured in the snippet. Backing vocals of a very young Patrick… they were pretty thin, hopefully I pinpointed a good clip.
The Kill Pill’s “Outside These City Walls” (2003). Backing vocals, I can only hope.
Gym Class Heroes’ “Cupid’s Chokehold” (2005… and 2007). Guest vocals.
Motion City Soundtrack’s “Everything Is All Right” (2005). Backing vocals.
October Fall’s “Second Chances” (2006). Guest vocals.
The Hush Sound’s “Don’t Wake Me Up” (2006). Guest vocals.
Misery Signals’ “One Day I’ll Stay Home” (2006). Guest vocals.
Damnation AD’s “If You Could Remember” (2007) Guest vocals, but it’s practically a duet.
Timbaland’s “One and Only” (2007). Guest vocals that could fool you into thinking that Timbaland was the featured artist.
Gym Class Heroes’ “Clothes Off!” (2007). Guest vocals.
New Found Glory’s “The King of Wishful Thinking” (2007). Backing vocals.
Cobra Starship’s album ¡Viva la Cobra! (2007). He’s everywhere on that damn album, but “My Moves are White (White Hot, that Is)” is featured in the snippet for obvious reasons.
The Cab’s “One of THOSE Nights” (2008). Guest vocals.
The Cab’s “I’m a Wonder” (2008). Backing vocals.

Kristeen Young’s “That’s What it Takes, Dear” (2008). Guest vocals that are, once again, more of a duet.
With various artists for Coca Cola product placement, “Open Happiness” (2009). Backing vocals… AND THE WHISTLE!

Murs’ “Bummed Out Blues” (2011). Guest vocals.

(… Wow, not being able to put read mores on audio posts is LAME. Sorry about the long post.)
ooh thanks for the mention. I uh, I added more, but this uh, okay my post is blown out of the water.
What sucks is that I saw your second post literally one minute after I posted this. :x Uh, yeah, sorry if it seems like I was upstaging you, I had no intention of doing that. You had a great idea for a compilation. :)
