I was assigned the letter 'S'.
Second Lover by Noah and the Whale. So, it's a bit melancholy, but I'm in the funk I find is induced by this shitty cold weather and a girl with eyes the color of almonds. "I will love you in reality, and dreams."
Suffocation Keep by The Slip. I discovered them reading some old issues of Rolling Stone in our basement, and while the album isn't fantastic, this song gave me chills from the first line. "People are strange, that's why we're strangers."
Song for No One by Miike Snow. Evidence of slash-madness; when I heard this, I pictured this world-weary Draco Malfoy. Even though that's weird, the song isn't--it's extremely top-notch. I just... I love this band, and this song just tugs at something. "When your love has gone, you carry on; this is her song, this is a song for No One." Who's a lovesick fool? *raises hand guiltily*
Spanish Metal by Kaiser Chiefs. I just love their vibe. And this song has been stuck in my head for quite a while. "And if you think you're right, then you are wrong."
Start Wearing Purple by Gogol. Two reasons: it's at the very end of the movie Everything Is Illuminated, which I madly love, and also, tomorrow, our school will be wearing Purple in memorial of the LGBT community, and the suicides, recognised and unrecognised by the media. "All your sanity and wits, they will all vanish--I promise."
I'm quite proud of my selection, check out the tunes if you'd like, comments are ALWAYS welcome.
