Mix: Shout*For - The Best Of

Title: Shout*For - The Best Of
Fandom: Fake news, Saturday Night Live RPF
Subject: The fake news boy band AU
Rating: PG

Part affectionate boy-band parody, part soundtrack for the Disney teen pop star AU. A sampling of the kinds of music written for our dubiously-well-adjusted heroes (and breathlessly misinterpreted by the more enthusiastic shippers among their fans).

High-res version of the cover art.

Shout*For - The Best Of from sailorptah on 8tracks Radio.

Shout*For: Manufactured boy band. Starring Jimmy Fallon and "Stephen Colbert" (Disney Channel actors since age 10, and BFFs for even longer); Tucker Carlson (veteran of KidzBop); and Jon Stewart (scouted through auditions in Jersey, has no idea what he's in for).
Lisa Munn: This world's Miley Cyrus. Goes by Olivia with her friends, but Lisa is the name she got famous with, and until her contract is up, she's stuck with it.
And friends: Co-stars (and bonus romantic interests) include Kristen Schaal and Tina Fey.

Da Vinci's Notebook • Title Of The Song
(Shout*For's music, in summary.)
Declaration of my feelings for you / Elaboration on those feelings / Description of how long these feelings have existed / Belief that no one else could feel the same as I

Justin Bieber • Catching Feelings
(Stephen and Jimmy have tinhatters. Songs like this don't help.)
We were best of friends since we were this high / So why do I get nervous every time you walk by

Nick Jonas • Please Be Mine
(Jimmy's actually into Tina. Even writes his own songs for her.)
They come and go / But they don't know / That you are my beautiful

(...He's not very good at it yet. Give him another decade or so.)

Hannah Montana • If We Were A Movie
(Olivia and Stephen, cast as love interests on-screen, then in a PR fake romance IRL.)
If we were a movie / You'd be the right guy / And I'd be the best friend / That you'd fall in love with in the end

Michael Stanley Band • All I Ever Wanted
(They also all get purity rings. Jon hates it. But Stephen wants to wait, and that, he respects.)
Take your time, make your mind up / Don't say yes if you really don't know / 'Cause I can hold on just a little longer / And the night is still young, so let's go

Backstreet Boys • The One
(Jon and Stephen, fallen into something that's good for both of them.)
A helping hand to make it right / I am holding you all through the night

Jessica Simpson & Nick Lachey • A Whole New World
(They open each other's horizons.)
I'm like a shooting star / I've come so far / I can't go back to where I used to be

(Also, Stephen is the pampered-but-sheltered beauty trapped with an exploitative adviser, and Jon is the scrappy-but-goodhearted kid with no idea how to handle suddenly being rich.)

Ashley Tisdale • Kiss The Girl
(And they end up encouraging Olivia to finally ask out Kristen.)
Yes, you want her / Look at her, you know you do / It's possible she wants you too / There is one way to ask her / It don't take a word, not a single word / Go on and kiss the girl

Jump5 • Walking On Sunshine
(They're cute couples.)
I used to think maybe you loved me / Now, baby, I'm sure

Hannah Montana • Spotlight
(And true friends, which helps them get through their frequently-dysfunctional lives.)
Oh, music's like a magnet / The best thing on the planet / It's pulling us together again / So, let's cause a commotion / Sound waves on the ocean / Wake the moon and grab your best friend / Let's step into the spotlight again

One Direction • They Don't Know About Us
(Secret relationships can be a strain.)
They don't know what we do best / It's between me and you, our little secret / But I want to tell them / I want to tell the world that you're mine

(...The tinhats aren't all wrong about songs like that being personally meaningful to two of the boys. They've just latched onto the wrong two. And overlooked the girls entirely.)

Bonus • MikeBoySlim • Which Backstreet Boy Is Gay?
(At least people tend to guess right about Stephen.)
We are on fire / We have desires / But one is that way / One Backstreet Boy is gay
