the apple of my itunes

no, i'm not going to get all hipster on you and subject you to my list

so here are ten songs that always leave me totally blissed:

and i know that it’s home because that’s where the stereo sings
“i’ve got dreams to remember.”
but not even home can be with you forever.

when we're on different sides of the globe
i thought we'd keep our veins tangled
like a pair of mic cables.

the national -- mr november.

i wish i didn't sleep so late.
