When I got a new laptop for graduation in May, I felt the need to create the perfect mix of songs to listen to first in order to consecrate my pristine new itunes. The resulting mix was a combination of some of my all-time favorite songs and my obsessions at the time.

Track 1 from Time To Pretend - EP
Length: 00:04:29
Year: 2007
Track Description:
I was going through an obsession with this song at the time I made this mix. I really like MGMT's send-up of the clich├ęd poor little rock star persona. Plus they're from Memphis, which is awesome because it cools up my hometown a bit.

Track 6 from The Dresden Dolls
Length: 00:04:46
Year: 2006
Track Description:
I was in a huge Dresden Dolls phase when I first got the MacBook. This is definitely one of my two favorite Dresden Dolls songs. I love their cabaret style, and especially this track as it takes a subject that has great potential to be cringe-inducing and uses it to illustrate the incredible loneliness the speaker feels. Besides that, it's damn clever.

Track Description:
My favorite Bob Dylan song if not my favorite song of all time. I can't pick a line because they are all so incredible that it's impossible to choose just one and there's no way I'm going to type out eleven minutes worth of lyrics here.

Track 13 from Get Behind Me Satan
Length: 00:04:16
Year: 2005
Track Description:
I have a special affinity for Get Behind Me Satan, because I dropped my iPod in the bath tub around January and I didn't have my music backed up on my computer so, this being one of the few cds I owned, I listened to it practically non-stop for two months. That said, this is my favorite track off that cd. I read in an interview with Jack White that he got the idea for it when he was talking to Loretta Lynn about being on the road all the time with only Meg around. He said to her, "You know, sometimes I get lonely..." and Loretta Lynn said "Honey, you ain't that lonely yet." I find that very funny. Especially knowing that Meg was sitting right there as he explained this to the interviewer.

Track 3 from 69 Love Songs Vol. 1
Length: 00:02:46
Year: 1999
Track Description:
69 Love Songs is one of my favorite albums of all time, but I have a hard time picking out one favorite track as I'm more inclined to look at their sheer collective brilliance. If I had to pick just one, however, this melancholic little number could take the cake.
