|The Weepies - World Spins Madly On [Official Music Video]|
I've been a fan of Deb Talan before fate brought her to Steve Tannen and they became The Weepies. To me, this song is Laurel's anthem.

Oh, Adele. I think this song ended up on my list because the story takes place in my own hometown.

It's that "back to the start" part that gets me every time.
The Shins - New Slang [OFFICIAL VIDEO]
by Sub Pop
One of those mood songs. And a terrific one.
Liz Phair - Everything To Me
by Liz Phair
