^ Well, it's clear to me that you know a whole lot about music - and often in some obscure unfashionable corners too. I think that's what appeals to me about your recs.

The Front Bottoms: Raining
^ A song that starts " It was raining the day they let me out of the hospital" promises to be too emo to be true - but this song really works imo. It's not as OTT as we might imagine from the first line: it's easy on the ear with its poppy "ooh-ooh-ooh", but it still makes a clear statement of individual disaffection. A nice combination.
Did you ever hear of having more than you wanted? So that you couldn’t want anything else and then started looking for something else to want? It seems like we’re always searching for something to satisfy us, and never finding it. - Susan Eloise Hinton, 1967
