Ben says:

This play list is dedicated to all the girls, especially those with Zooey Deschenal fringes and polka dot dresses!!!

Key Tracks =

Death Cab For Cutie – Cath… = Ben Gibbard paints such a beautiful image in his lyrics about girls, and all the boy feelings that kick in when girls are around. For further proof, check out Lightness. Hells Yeah!

The Kinks – Lola = Just…..Because!

Bon Iver – For Emma = By very definition, a bitter sweet love letter to an ex, bliss!

Ben Folds Five – Kate = Ben Folds is also a lyrical genius, and somehow manges to sum up, perfectly, a Kate I used to know.

Dr. Willy & The Robot Masters – The Legend Of Zelda = The best game ever! A fantastic cover!

Nuff said!!
