56. Like lyrical zombies some bands continue to come back from the dead. “Is That Love?” by Squeeze.

58. Music makes cleaning the house a little less soul-sucking. “’49” by The Silent Comedy.

59. All it took was one song to start a love affair with the same band for 15 years. “78 Stone Wobble” by Gomez.

60. There’s nothing more self-indulgent than a sad song when you’re already sad. “Burn” by Ray LaMontagne.

61. I always know what song my dad will play on my birthday. “Birthday” by The Beatles.

62. When I suddenly discover a band that’s been around for years I open the door to a wonderful world of their past discography. “Your Touch” by The Black Keys.

63. I can crush on a band and the hot stars of their music videos. “The Ghost Inside” by Broken Bells.

64. Some songs bring back the most vivid memories of good times and good friends. “Son’s Gonna Rise” by Citizen Cope.

65. Some songs paint the most vivid pictures. “Grapevine Fires” by Death Cab for Cutie.

66. Someday I’m getting a tattoo that features meaningful lyrics. “Royal Blue” by Cold War Kids.
