Stuck by Stacie Orrico
One of these songs that always resound from the depths of my adolescence. I haven’t heard this in maybe a decade until today and, wonder of wonders, I still like it.
Now that I think about it, I think I like it so much because it — in its own childish, helpless way — describes the relentless pattern of thought of addiction.

Always gets to me.
Pigeon Food by Larkin Grimm
I love the uncertain vulnerability and lyrics of this song. I enjoy the way the voices are layered and welded together into this Grimm collage. It also feels somehow always strikes me as a village-girl’s ballad to a lover who leaves her for city girls. Very enticing.
