Also, sorry, I don't own all these, so I can't really give them to you, but you gan get Spotify!
1. This Year- The Mountain Goats
Despite the unforgettable alcohol references, I really relate to this song. I mean, it's pretty darn inspiring.
This song makes me feel a little bit like a confident Cameron Frye, from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I mean, it's so great when Cameron finally can get all that anger out, and deals with his feelings and embraces the fact that he will be OK. I imagine that this song was playing in his head.
2. Blister in the Sun- Violent Femmes
This song is kind of the anthem of teen angst to me. Nothing else I can say.
3. 3,6,9- Cat Power
If you don't know Cat Power, I am very sorry. She is amazing. Truly. She famously had a panic attack onstage at a show and had to leave. Which is exactly what I feel like doing a lot of the time. But I can't leave the stage. Because IT'S MY LIFE. Oh my god, deep connection.
This song is so incredible in the first 5 seconds changing from what you think it's going to be and what it is. It's so poppy but also so deep. Cat Power, I love you.
4. Naked Kids- Grouplove
I find Grouplove really obnoxious a lot of the time, but I cannot help but love the hilarity and enjoyment and obnoxiousness of this song.
5. Australia- The Shins
The Shins are great. I love this song because I feel like parts of it have been playing in my head my whole life and now I just found what it is and what it means. Maybe a calling to Australia?! Not really. But I like this song a lot.
6. Janglin- Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros
Yeah, Home. Yeah, I know. I know. But this song is nice, I think.
7. Standing In the Rain- Hüsker Dü
I really like this song and I don't know why.
8. Our Lips Are Sealed- The Go-Go's
This song is so feminine and wonderful and empowering I LOVE.
Why are there so few girls bands now?
Why don't they make album covers like this anymore?
9. Good Day- Greg Street, Nappy Roots
Nappy Roots is from KENTUCKY y'all REPRESENT. But really. This song is hilarious and awesome and really catchy and happy and good. And the singing children in the video are not to be missed.
10. Two Step- Throwing Muses
This song is full of nostalgia and beauty for me and I loooove it.
11. Honey Bunny- Girls
I love 'Girls', even though they aren't a girl band. I cried when they broke up this summer. They're really good. When you're in the mood for something sad, listen all the way through to their song Forgiveness.
OK. I feel terrible for making this so long. I'm sorry. And now I'm just adding to it ahhhhhh
