Reasons I may pick a song:
I listened to it a lot.
I had it in my head.
I was blown away by it.
I discovered it.
I rediscovered it.
I heard it somewhere special.
I listened to the lyrics in a new way.
I learned something about it.
I cried to it.
I saw it performed.
It's a really fucking good song.
So let's get this party started:
Thursday, Oct. 14, 2010: Arcade Fire - We Used to Wait - Going through a rough time adjusting to college 6 hours away from everyone I know and love. I'm changing fast...I just hope something pure can last.
Friday, Oct. 15. 2010: Kid Cudi - Soundtrack 2 My Life - CuDi was at Northwestern tonight. The show was pretty good, this song was by far the highlight for me. Reminded me of driving down Paragon in the summer at 3 in the morning. And he's from Ohio--major bonus points!

In “Who Makes Your Money” the ambient noise and backing piano have a chilling feel. The instruments in “I Saw the Light” create a sense of anticipation. That leads to the jam, where the piano is used effectively to process the emotion of the song and symbolize the realization of seeing the light. In “Nobody Gets Me but You,” the array of sounds creates an unique feel. …
