Oasis- Champagne Supernova
“I love Oasis. This song brings back so many memories of reckless summers and drinking tinnys, underage in the park.”

Velvet Underground- Heroin

Sia- Don’t Bring Me Down

Cigarettes After Sex- Nothing’s Gonna Hurt you Baby

Slowdive- Crazy For You
“This track has such a time stamp on it for me. It brings me right back to a certain falling for someone. Also a lot of smoking grass!”
