I Write Sins Not Tragedies Was Originally Called ‘Flam Chorus’

On the original master copy of Panic! At The Disco’s A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, I Write Sins… had a different title (as did the rest of the songs).

Longtime Panic! At The Disco manager Scott Nagelberg has revealed that the songs on the band’s stunning debut A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out had some pretty hilarious working titles.

Legendary smash single I Write Sins Not Tragedies seemingly went by the name ‘Flam Chorus’ (actually, it’s spelt ‘chours’ here, but we’re sure they meant chorus), while But It’s Better If You Do was called ‘Cabaret’, and There’s A Good Reason These Tables Are Numbered Honey, You Just Haven’t Thought Of It Yet was simply, um, ‘Top Hats’. It also seems that Panic! initially went without the signature exclamation mark in their band name…

The working tracklist was revealed on Scott’s Instagram after he found the original master of the record, writing: “Unearthed the master of AFYCSO while packing up the apartment this weekend – almost 14 years old to the date! Nobody could have predicted the wild ride ahead with four kids who had never played a show outside of Vegas.

I was 24 and remember hearing people discuss that letting me managing Panic would be good experience to learn how to make a record (which I had never done before)… learn I did, and continue to. The heart, creativity, trust and dialogue with Brendon is truly something special, and if you couldn’t tell, I’m feeling super grateful (and a bit reflective) to be playing role in all of the beautiful insanity that is Panic. #FlamChorus
