1661 Most Significant Songs in My Life: What a Catch, Donnie

The song is indeed a catch. Fall Out Boy lead vocalist Patrick Stump sings the blues in this yet-to-be-figured-out-what-it-means song.

It’s a track that is a definite stand out from the album “Folie à Deux”. Undoubtedly, “What a Catch” is different from Fall Out Boy’s usual pop-rock tune. Patrick Stump notably exhibits his versatility as a vocalist; for in this track he sings with a charm of blues. Listeners may even be reminded of Elton John.

Furthermore, “What a Catch” features artists such as Elvis Costello, Brendon Urie, William Beckett, Travis McCoy, Gabe Saporta, and Alex DeLeon. The medley at the end of the song further made the song a catch. And the band further proved their artistic creativity.

As for the song’s actual significance, let’s just say that “I got troubled thoughts and the self-esteem to match.” What a catch, eh?
