16-Year-Old Mia Morris Pens A Sequel To Fountains Of Wayne’s Iconic “Stacey’s Mom”


It’s been 17 years since Fountain of Wayne’s “Stacey’s Mom” climbed the Billboard charts and filled teenagers’ cars with unabridged pop-punk energy. For many, the song represents a time-gone-by, harkening to the confusing and consequential coming-of-age that a generation of Americans went through during the Bush era. Yet, for others, the song is an open book of sorts, with questions left unanswered… questions like: what happened to Stacey after the song ended? Well, if that question has been burning a hole in your mind since 2003, then I’ve got good news for you — 16-year-old pop-punk prodigy Mia Morris has released the sequel to “Stacey’s Mom,” an energetic and delightful track by the name of “Stacey’s Song.”

“I’m a huge fan of the aggression in grunge, the energy and fun in pop-punk and the satisfying melody-and-chord relationships of The Beatles,” Morris told American Songwriter. “For me, the band Fountains of Wayne do an amazing job of blending most of those influences, so I’m always analyzing their songs when I’m thinking about how to improve my writing. I actually spend quite a bit of time analyzing chord, melody, cadence, lyrics and even production of songs I love.”
