  1. Closer <3 <3 <3

    I met Joy Williams at a local bookstore when I was like, 10. and no one knew her. and Im so proud that she's made it in the world and people know her now.
    I havent heard that song but it sounds lovely. Thank you <3

    1. I used to listen to Joy Williams when I was super young too--we had a WOW CD or something that had one of her songs and I LOVED IT. so getting into her music as an older person has been one of the most fulfilling things ever. :)

  2. Ahhhh I love music recap posts so much! I was so happy when this appeared in my feed <3 I haven't heard any of these songs, but I'll have to give them a listen. I've been listening to "Final Masquerade" by Linkin Park, "Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown on a Bad Bet" by Fall Out Boy, and (bc I'm trash) "Monochrome No Kiss" and "Uragiri no Yuuyake".

    1. yessss Fall Out Boy. I don't listen to them as much as I once did, but they definitely have a soft place in my heart.

      I listened to the Japanese songs you mentioned (yay for trashcan friends), and I loved them so much. The Durarara one made me want to go back and rewatch SO MUCH. OPs especially get me--I really should listen to them more. Two that I just got into listening to on repeat are History Maker (Dean Fujioka ftw) and Abnormalize from Psycho Pass (because, above all else, I am the biggest Psycho Pass trash. someone save me. actually, don't. Ling Tosite Sigure has some of the best songs, yo).


the best way to make me smile is to comment. or to send me a basket full of kittens and dark chocolate. whatever works for you.
