Cupid's Chokehold, Breakfast in America' was written by Roger Hodgson and Rick Davies (Supertramp). And I know it sounds so old But cupid got me in a chokehold And I'm afraid I might give in Towels on the mat my white flag is wavin'. I mean she even cooks me pancakes And Alka Seltzer when my tummy aches If that ain't love then I don't know what love is. We even got a secret handshake And she loves the music that my band makes I know I'm young but if I had to choose her or the sun I'd be one nocturnal son of a gun.
Gym Class Heroes re-recorded the song with female backing vocals for the re-release of their 2006 album As Cruel as School Children. Gym Class Heroes knew very well that Supertramp was a popular '70s band, and not just a nickname for Paris Hilton. Many of their influences were big in the '70s and '80s, with artists like Billy Joel, Hall & Oates, Paul Simon and Bruce Springsteen topping their list. When Sie One played them the "Breakfast In America" clip, they were familiar with it.
