8. Selling the Drama-Live: Because teenage years, that’s why

10. 1979-Smashing Pumpkins: Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness…. Need I say more?

13. Next to You-Chris Brown feat Justin Bieber: Even those this video is pretty dumb(which is why I opted for the lyrics version instead), I do still love the message of this song.
14. Ironic (Acoustic)-Alanis Morissette: In case the original wasn't awesome enough, this acoustic version is for when you want the same message in a slower tone :) You can never go wrong with Alanis.
15. Over the Love-Florence and the Machine: How can you not love a FATM song? This song is so beautiful, and I always love her lyrics, and it comes off of the amazing Great Gatsby soundtrack.

Games that never amount to more than their meant will play themselves out" Such power in those lyrics. I have to stop everything and listen when these two amazing musicians get together. If you have never been blessed with the opportunity of watching Once, you need to make your life better by doing so. That movie never gets old for me.
