I don't know why, but when I hear this song it makes me want to do The Carlton dance move, Carlton from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.  Its not an insult or a slight toward this song in anyway, but a pure invocation of dance your ass off and have fun.  As a YA writer I think there's this writer satisfaction that comes with a character falling in love with another character that seems out of their league.  Through great writing the wallflower can catch the heart of the jock, the nerd can whisk the prom queen off her feet. This song is the soul of John Hughes movies like Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, and Sixteen Candles.  That's what this song embodies for me. I'm just smitten over the lyrics, they are the sweetest ever.

Take and bite and enjoy!



Lyrics "Out of My League" by Fitz and The Tantrums

(More than just a dream...)

Forty days and forty nights
I waited for a girl like you to come and save my life
All the days I waited for you
You know the ones who said I'd never find someone like you

And you were out of my league
All the things I believed
You were just the right kind
Yeah, you were more than just a dream
You were out of my league
Got my heartbeat racing
If I die don't wake me
’Cause you are more than just a dream

From time to time I pinch myself
Because I think my girl mistakes me for somebody else
And every time she takes my hand
All the wonders that remain become a simple fact

Because you were out of my league
All the things I believed
You were just the right kind
Yeah, you were more than just a dream
You were out of my league
Got my heartbeat racing
If I die don't wake me
’Cause you are more than just a dream

‘Cause you were out of my league
All the things I believed
You were just the right kind
Yeah, you were more than just a dream
You were out of my league
Got my heartbeat racing
If I die don't wake me
'Cause you are more than just a dream

More than just a dream…
