Every summer I compile a list of songs that epitomize, for me, the happenings and obsessions I went through during the season. The winter’s been getting left out. Not anymore.
Everyone’s got their own reasons for liking music. I like music because of its ability to tell a story. For better or worse, these songs took me through the start of autumn and will hopefully carry me through spring.
Added bonus- they are all excellent songs.
Witchcraft– Frank Sinatra
Defining line- “What good would common sense for it do?”
Here Comes the Anxiety– The Wombats

So there you have it. The season started off a little rocky, but it’s finally 2013, almost my birthday, and I’m feeling good as hell.
