  • Come Pick Me Up - Ryan Adams
  • Take it Easy (Love Nothing) - Bright Eyes

  • Leaving New York - R.E.M
  • Unhook the Stars - Cyndi Lauper 

  • Elephants - Rachael Yamagata

  • Accident - Rachael Yamagata
  • Easy Silence - Dixie Chicks
  • God of Wine - Third Eye Blind

  • The Background - Third Eye Blind
PS: I never pretended that this list makes any sense, either lyrically or musically. It's just a few dozen songs that mean a lot to me for a lot of different reasons.

Once again, I really like your taste in music. And nothing that moves you has to make sense. Like you said, you like these songs because they mean a lot to you. That's all the justification you need.
