39Lupe Fiasco
Tetsuo and Youth


Dots and Lines

Any love less than unconditional is so
Under-Christian, it's unrepentant
The physical part of my church
Emits the invisible arts of my work
To make gold from garbage
Is not the alchemical point of this math
But truth be told it's the pursuit of gold
That turns the goal of men into trash

20Capsule (JPN)
Fruits Clipper


5ive Star

My introduction to Yasutaka Nakata. I played it on Stepmania, this DDR clone for your computer, probably in like…2010? Maybe a little earlier. It’s so catchy, synthpop perfection. Helps that it’s half in English so I can feel like I’m singing along
19Charli XCX
Charli


Gone

Literally the best pop song to come out past the year 2000
18The Middle East
The Recordings of the Middle East


Blood

VERY RARE effective use of childrens choir in song about uhhh aging divorce and death told through one family i think. i like at the end where they clearly intended for the children to stop being a choir but a couple kept going on accident and committed to the measure or whatever
17Courtney Barnett
The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas


Avant Gardener

We say thank you Bojack Horseman for the song about life being a struggle but putting up with it because what the fuck else is it supposed to be. I LOVE her dry tone, it ironically feels like a breath of fresh air to hear someone singing about mundane things so…mundanely / The paramedic thinks I'm clever 'cause I play guitar, I think she's clever cause she stops people dying
16Indigo Girls
Indigo Girls


Closer To Fine

The best thing you've ever done for me Is to help me take my life less seriously, /it's only life after all
15Cardiacs
The Seaside


Jibber and Twitch

Song about having adhd
14Car Seat Headrest
How To Leave Town


Kimochi Warui (When...?)

Will Toledo writing his silly little soul-bearing songs reaches its peak for me right here. Having killed your heroes, feeling lost and alone, what do you do? How do you grow?

The people that I’ve talked to
And the books that I’ve read
And the TV shows and movies that I’ve seen
Are all I have to turn to to learn how to live
But when? When? When? When? When? When? When will I ever learn?
13illuminati hotties
Kiss Yr Frenemies


For Cheez (My friend, not the food)

Keep in mind…everything is temporary
You’ll be fine

Hey, let's grab a donut sometime
12Holly Herndon
Proto


Frontier

Folk music from another world. Conjures up Images that are Fun to me. Also I love her approach to choir vocals
11Yoko Kanno
Wolf's Rain


Gravity

Song from anime with a bunch of wolfs and god DAMN it it makes me cry everytime…SOMETHING IS PULLING ME…*SOB* I FEEL THE GRAVITY…OF IT ALLLL
10Yellow Magic Orchestra
BGM


Love the repeating melody on this
I’m sick and tired of the same old chaos / must be a way out of this…cul-de-sac
9Sweet Trip
You Will Never Know Why


Milk

This is probably the saddest song i have ever heard in my life
8Bon Iver
22, A Million


8 (circle)

There’s a part where Boney Ver is saying like three cryptic things at once and I just think that’s really fun and exciting
7Blind Guardian
A Night At The Opera


And Then There Was Silence

This is the best power metal song ever
6Phoebe Bridgers
Punisher


I Know The End

It wasn't the loss itself, it was the lead up and the aftermath. But the acknowledgement that I had missed out on so much and any potential for a relationship was over, that felt like its own beginning. I know what the end looks like. It's always close - but I'm not there yet.
5The Go! Team
Thunder, Lightning, Strike


Everyone's A VIP To Someone (either version they both get the idea across)

This one is nostalgia to me, i don’t know why. But The Go! Team is a band i’ve listened to since I was a kid, and even way back then I could feel the wistfulness and longing in this track.
4Swans
The Seer


The Apostate

Earth shattering, soul shaking, this whole record is Swans at their finest and this is its epic finale. It’s placement at the end of the seer is important - that sprawling two hour record sends you down so many feelings, so many emotions - to hear The Apostate after hearing various forms of fear, madness and tranquility, it feels like ascending to a plane where the final boss resides. This is probably the intention. WE’RE ON A LADDER TO GODDDDD
3Gang of Youths
Go Farther in Lightness


Perservere

Couple days this tune was the reason I got up in the morning
2Fiona Apple
The Idler Wheel...


Every Single Night

I was thirteen and like yeah this song about being riddled with anxiety and not being able to sleep at night is relatable. Interesting
1Kate Bush
Hounds Of Love


Cloudbusting

Perfect pop song. Kate made some real magic here - a few simple melodies, a little bittle of yodeling, lyrics that imply daddy issues but are really about some dude in Maine that claimed he could change the weather with sexual energy or some shit…Cloudbusting has it all
