1. Norwegians, so witty. They're everywhere!
2. Haim always delivers. Also, my mom's new favorite band! She's very excited for their concert coming up in May.
4. Here's another favorite song by the group
5. THIS IS ONE OF THE GREATEST SONGS. Thin Lizzy. They are way cooler than anything. I just can't handle it guys. 
7. So much death in this mix. Sorry guys, it's a theme.
12. This cover is really messing with my brain. I loved how he made it major. Here's the original for reference.
15. Too much. This song takes me back to the months before my dad died. It's hard to listen to it, but hopefully therapeutic as well? It reminds me of the scene in A Christmas Carol where Scrooge is with the Ghost of Christmas Past and he sees his younger self working all the time and he yells at young Scrooge to run out the door after Isabella after she breaks off their engagement. But he can't do anything because everything he sees are just shadows of things that have already happened. That's what it's like, listening to this song.
16. One of my many 2014 resolutions. I think we could all use it.
