My Top 20

The year I moved to New York City I bought my first iPod and it forever changed my music life. Gone were the days of carrying around a Discman with a stack of CDs. I took my iPod with me everywhere. I remember scrolling through my entire music library in amazement during my freshman year classes and spending hours downloading each and every disc from my CD books into iTunes.

With my iPod also came the freedom to make unlimited playlists. Since 2003 I have made countless playlists for workouts, flights, road trips, seasons, holidays, and moods. And these twenty songs, my personal top twenty, are on almost every playlist I make. Most of these songs have streamed through my headphones for over fifteen years, with one or two new additions along the way.
  1. Wildflowers, Tom Petty 
  2. Gimme Shelter, Rolling Stones 
  3. Cornflake Girl, Tori Amos 
  4. Say It Ain't So, Weezer 
  5. All I Want, Toad The Wet Sprocket 
  6. Where Does the Good Go, Tegan and Sara 
  7. Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town, Pearl Jam
  8. Learning to Fly, Tom Petty 
  9. Beautiful Girl, INXS
  10. White Blank Page, Mumford & Sons
  11. Swan Dive, Ani Difranco 
  12. Optimistic, Radiohead
  13. Wonderwall, Oasis  
  14. Gypsy, Fleetwood Mac 
  15. Just Like Heaven, The Cure
  16. To Build a Home, The Cinematic Orchestra 
  17. The District Sleeps Alone Tonight, Postal Service
  18. Porcelain, Moby
  19. Bittersweet Symphony, The Verve 
  20. Silver Springs (The Dance), Fleetwood Mac
