  1. I call these first five songs “the steadfast” in my head. 
  2. At least once a week throughout all of August I had a conversation with someone about how amazing Sleeping At Last is. 
  3. People dissing Coldplay is the number one cause of me saying “fight me” in public. 
  4. I haven’t typed this name in a while, I just copy/paste it out of iTunes. 
  5. Fun story: I’ve got a Mumford & Sons poster on my wall right now. Turns out my host family is full of people who like their music. 
  6. Now that I’m copying over links from previous posts, instead of just searching Amazon for them each time, you wind up with little blobs of songs like this. Mostly because, if I like it enough to link to it, I also like it enough to keep it in the next month’s playlist. 
  7. Even if I didn’t like this song I think I would’ve had to include just because the name is cool. 
  8. This one gets stuck in my head, but in a good way, y’know? 
  9. “Not the best thing to listen to with a hangover” – the friend I sent this to
