"Take me with you, I start to miss you"

To be honest, this song is here today because of the handclaps. I am a big fan of handclaps in music, and without them this would be another generic emopop single (though actually this is more like straight-up powerpop than emo). Marianas Trench are a Canadian band who have recently released a concept album called Masterpiece Theatre that at times can get pretty theatrical. Fans of Queen should definitely check out the opening title track, the band's take on a Bohemian Rhapsody structure (complete with choral vocals). Even with all that drama, Cross My Heart is my favorite track. It's just a simple, unbelievably catchy radio single. Plus, the hand claps... LORD, the handclaps!
