My first playlist of this kind ever.
Ok, so what? This was way before the song got out of control on the radio. I didn’t feel guilty for liking it back then (but who did) and I don’t feel guilty for still liking it today.
YES. This was part of my Fueled By Ramen phase because, don’t lie, we all had one of those. If you didn’t, you’re a liar. Absolutely obsessed with these guys, mostly because of their haircuts. I used to like guys that looked like women… I think that explains a lot about me.
Sorry I’m not sorry I didn’t know what sex was back then and was obsessed with this song anyway. Not that you really have to know but it helps to understand what she’s singing about. That and drugs.
I still think this version is better than the original. Such a beautiful song. Funny that it was one of my favourites in ‘07 and I’m living in Boston now.. weird how life works out sometimes.
This was also part of my Fueled By Ramen obsession. They’re such a wonderful band. Wonder what happened to them…
Don’t think this song was ever on The O.C. but man, does it remind me of that show.
Still don’t feel embarrassed for having two Plain White T’s songs in one playlist. And I never will because this song is so catchy.
I think this was my introduction to Cat Power; 4 years later and I’m still obsessed. This is one of her more fun tunes, far less depressing / drug-induced than her others.
Don’t know if I ever listened to another song by this dude but this one is wonderful. I love how being 15 gave me license to think I knew anything about love. I mean, like I know anything about it now… awkward.
Wow, another song that’s definitely about sex. And I thought I knew what it was all about. I learned all the lyrics to this song and would moan along with the lead singer whenever I played it. Such a weird kid, so glad it’s not 2007 and I’m not a freak anymore.
Still wondering what happened to Copeland. Like.. where’d they go, dude? They were interesting. Also, I’ve been an advocate of coffee since the ripe age of 13, true story.
This remains one of my favourite John Legend songs. What a soulful voice he has. This songs still brings me chills, it’s absolutely gorgeous in its sadness.
I think this was the year the Yeah Yeah Yeahs were on the VMAs and I had absolutely no idea who they were. Only listened to this song for a while; it wasn’t until at least two years later that I remembered them and started listening to their other stuff and realized they’re pretty great and that Maps wasn’t their only song.
Truth be told, I only started listening to Broken Social Scene because this guy I was unhealthily obsessed with in high school listened to them. How did I know this? I stalked his Nexopia account. So weird. I also knew he liked Fight Club… this is so awkward, I’m gonna stop.
It seems that this playlist is filled with all these sad songs for some reason. I think I liked to pretend I was emo or something. But this tune is fantastic. I’m a huge Pete Yorn fan.
Probably found this on some music blog randomly, but I loved it. It’s cute.
