• Arcade Fire's Funeral - 10th grade crushes
  • Beach House's Teen Dream - early summer 2010 with my bffs
  • The Strokes' Is This It? - transition from awkward middle school self into what I define myself as now
  • David Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust - sometimes feeling like an alien around people
  • David Bowie's Young Americans - that horrible/necessary feeling that I might be settling for less than I deserve
  • Of Montreal's Satanic Panic in the Attic - feeling blissfully in love
  • The Smith's Louder Than Bombs - rainy day comfort and feeling like I'm venting about people I don't like while singing along
  • The Velvet Underground's The Velvet Underground & Nico - working in Martha's with my only true high school friends and wincing when "European Son" came on
  • Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Fever to Tell - pure 10th -11th grade girl power
  • The Zombies' Odessey & Oracle - driving to the beach at night; being genuinely happy
  • Belle & Sebastian's The Life Pursuit - remembering how I met people and reminiscing over and over in my mind
  • Bob Dylan's Bringing it All Back Home - feeling pathetic for wishing these songs were about me so badly that I try to emulate them in the hopes that one day maybe someone will write something about me that's half as beautiful
