Back in high school, I was a lot more "into"music than I am now. I hung out with the choir/drama kids, and I had a couple friends that were always sharing new bands or albums that I still love now.
Most people have a "favorites" folder on their iTunes, which has a hundred or so of your absolute favorite songs, and I started a playlist titled, "songs that make my heart hurt" for those select few songs that the moment you hear it, you have to stop and listen they're that good. I don't add to it very often, so it's a big deal when I hear a song I deem worthy of the heart hurt list.
Newest addition to the list:
"Cosmic Love" by Florence the Machine
Dear radio, please don't fall in love with this song like I did and kill it. Love, Mackenzie.
