My favorite song is Some Nights, but I really love all the songs. They are dreamy and sweet, but also importantly they cover a really important topic:depression and feeling stuck. I think it's really cool that she wrote the songs herself and uses a synthesizer as her instrument. I know that Deerful doesn't think that people have the means to play cassettes, but I do ^^ I love the sound of a tape, and I have an old cassette player :) dragonspirit1989
