Key Tracks =
Death Cab For Cutie – Cathâ€¦ = 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 = Justâ€¦..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!
