Girl’s favorite songs of the month (December)

Morrissey: Why Don’t You Find Out For Yourself?
(new wave pop; his voice is of course so familiar and cosy like an old sweater. and ohh, I want to sing along so bad.)

The Good Life: You Don’t Feel like Home to Me
(indie; in a post last month, I had anticipated this song becoming a gigantic song crush, and it did.)

Mirah: Don’t Die in Me
(open-hearted folk song; I’d sort of forgotten about Mirah for a while and started listening to this song again and for some reason it hit me in a way it never had before.)

Gorilla Biscuits: New Direction
(melodic hardcore; it’s in fact Rival School’s version of this song which made me appreciate the original more. I didn’t like it so much before, but since I heard another version of it.. I don’t know. It really grows on you, I suppose)

Mae: Just Let Go
(catchy pop-rock tune; with its dense background vocals, it’s like a journey through space.)

Margot & The Nuclear So and So’s: Bookworm
(indie chamber-pop; the title says it all, I can relate…)

Death Cab for Cutie: Christmas (Baby Please Come home)
(supersweet christmas song à la Gibbard; I got obsessed with it while I was making a list of Christmas songs. As a fellow Death Cabber, I believe that Ben has this amazing ability to cover any sort of song and turn it into his own. I swear, I could have believed that he wrote it.)

Relient K: Be My Escape

(new-emo; I once mentioned relient k to a – now ex – boyfriend of mine, and the first thing he said was, “eww”. well this song is joyfully heartbreaking and on top of that it becomes a guilty pleasure if, like many, you are ashamed of liking what people call ‘emo’ nowadays.)
