My So Called Article (not really..)

Readers, your dear beloved Nina has been swamped with work lately, and so in lieu of an article filled with substance this week I give you a fluffy article in the hopes that you may enjoy and not even have to think. I promise my article next week will be more substance filled once I get these pesky papers out of the way. Now, on with the article.

There are many songs out there that put my feelings perfectly into song. Many of them I WISH I had written, but unfortunately I lack the talent, and the time. In the spirit of High Fidelity, this week will be top 5 songs for many occasions (in no particular order, of course) .Enjoy.

“Remember the flowers I picked for you from your best friends back yard? You said that you’d never let them die. And like a rose, love has thorns, thorns that pierce my soul. She said she’d never let us die. Just one thing for you to know, this time I’ve let you go.”
4. Song for the Dumped- Ben Folds Five
