The Ramones – “Beat on the Brat”
This is the first song I ever learned how to sing, which was when I was two years old. I used to sing it on stage at my dad’s old bar to help him with soundcheck.
The Cure – “Friday I’m in Love”
I used to fall asleep to a classical version of this song every night when I was five. It always makes me feel super comfortable and peaceful.
Edith Piaf – “La Vie En Rose”
One of my favorite movies of all time is this french movie called Love Me If You Dare. The entire soundtrack is made up of different versions of this song. It’s also just such a classic and romantic song.
Big Star – “Thirteen”
This song got me through middle school.
Frank Sinatra – “Strangers in the Night”
This song will always be special to me. It’s the title track of the record my boyfriend and I listened to on our first date. Still gives me chills.
Lesley Gore – “You Don’t Own Me”
This song makes me feel like a bad bitch who doesn’t need a boy to rely on. Great feeling, haha.
King Tuff – “I Love You Ugly”
Cutest. Song. Ever.
Kate Nash – “OMYGOD!”
This is my go-to song to put me in a good mood.
The Frights – “Crust Bucket”
This song pretty much represents my entire ninth grade year.
Joni Mitchell – “All I Want”
Joni’s voice on this particular song makes me feel all kinds of crazy feelings. I love it.
