An overall awesome band. Jack's Mannequin is the side project of singer-songwriter-pianist Andrew McMahon of Something Corporate. It is usually classified as alternative rock, but is occasionally referred to as punk.Jack's Mannequin is a fairly new band. It was started in 2004, releasing it's first album in 2005. Jack's Mannequin only has one album, Everything In Transit, released right now. Everything In Transit is full of songs that are deeply personal to Andrew. Most of them have something to do with his struggle with leukemia. For example, Holiday From Real is about readjusting to his old life after his recovery and Kill The Messenger is about being in a relationship with someone who is ill (that person being himself). La La Lie involves the friends Andrew thought he had, but who didn't help him and stay by him while he was sick. Other songs from Everything In Transit are about love, relationships and other topics. Jack's Mannequin gained a lot of popularity after the band appeared on the T.V show One Tree Hill and were featured on it's soundtrack. The band currently finishing up their West Coast Winter Tour and will then start working on a new album.
Jack's Mannequin is a great band. They're my favorite.

Dark Blue lyrics include:

I have, I have you breathing down my neck, breathing down my neck
I don't, don't know what you could possibly expect under this condition so
I'll wait, I'll wait for the ambulance to come, ambulance to come
Pick us up off the floor what did you possibily expect under this condition so
Slow down, this nights a perfect shade of

Dark blue, dark blue
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room well I'm here with you
I said the world could be burning and burning down

Dark blue, dark blue
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room well I'm here with you
I said the world could be burning 'til there's nothing but dark blue
Just dark blue

Andrew McMahon of Something Corporate's insanely amazing side project.
"When I listen to Jack's Mannequin, it totally makes me melt."

A side project of singer/songwriter Andrew Mcmahon. Basicaly a solo project produced from the help of many other people including Tommy Lee on drums! Mcmahon uses his unique voice, powerful lyrics, and the heartfelt rithyms of his ever so famous piano. With a full album out now they are a great band to listen to whether your happy or sad. Basically Something Corporate with a little twist of pop flavor. For more info see Andrew Mcmahon or Something Corporate.
One hell of a kick ass side project sure to rock you. Jacks Mannequin is awsome

Piano Rock, to rock out on a grand piano, upright or keyboard. Kicking over your bench or seat and pounding some ivorys. A Jack's Mannequin might also exhibit the compulsion to dance on a piano.
That band is trying to play some Jack's Mannequin
