Alkaline Trio “Clavicle”

Les Savy Fav “We'll Make A Lover Of You”
from Inches (Co-operative Music 2007) —the first line is the best - "They say, "Once you've found love and it's rarer than gold. You stake your claim- it's so hard to hold." I say, "We've struck a vein and it's wide as a road!""


Eels “Fresh Feeling”
from Souljacker (Dreamworks Records 2002) —A pretty tune by one of her favorite bands, from one of her favorite albums.


Beth Bombara “Don't You Know”
from Wish I Were You (self 2010) L —Friend of the program Beth's tender song is just so pitch perfect. She noted how beautiful it was just yesterday.

John Lennon “Grow Old With Me”
from Milk and Honey (Remastered) (EMI UK Beatles 2010) —At my dayjob, we had a debate going on about what the most "realistic" love song is. My vote is this one.
