We caught the last stop of Nick Jonas’ mini tour in Brooklyn last night, in support of his new self-titled album out November 11th. We’d be lying if we said we were totally over the Jo Bros unexpected breakup last fall – after all, we’ve seen them in concert more than any other artist combined. We’ve been singing Nick’s praises since circa 2007, but it’s nice to see that finally all of his secret fans have come out in the open and realized what we’ve been saying all along.
Last night’s show was a definite departure from the Jonas Brothers’ style, so let’s take a look back at our favorite Jonas songs. If you’re feeling nostalgic, we suggest breaking out your “Bonus Jonas” edition DVD.
1. “Goodnight and Goodbye”
This is the song that cemented our love, when we saw them open for J Mac back in the day. We have a vivid memory of Nick ripping off his bowtie during this song, leading to immediately fangirling and possibly a sign of things to come.
2. “Pushin’ Me Away”
The concert movie intro of this song is one of our faves because of how into it Joe gets, pretending to direct the string section and then it stops and his vocals kick in. True story: we also had our own dance moves to this song.
We’re proud to say that we were in attendance of the one and ONLY time they ever performed this song. We’re glad someone was functioning enough to get this on video because we were probably sing-screaming at the top of our lungs (considering they had just brought out Robert Schwartzman)
4. “I Am What I Am”
Sorry Taylor, but THIS is the ultimate anti-hater jam. If you don’t like it get with somebody else. We may or may not have lost it when they played this song in a medley in 2010.
5. “What Do I Mean To You”
One of the last songs that they ever released (if you count giving the last album to your fan club for free as “releasing an album”), “What Do I Mean To You” was a dark song spawned from a failed relationship. The breakup had fans wondering what we meant to them, too.
