  1. Kirsten says:

    I probably should have put Eleanor Friedberger’s “I Won’t Fall Apart on You Tonight” on there instead but I always wanted to go to the Inn of the Seventh Ray so…
    From the Fountains of Wayne I should have gone with “Someone’s Gonna Break Your Heart,” especially for the great opening line: “Staring at the sun, with no pants on.”
    And if I were being completely honest, I would have ranked Adele much higher because I’ve heard “Rumor Has It” a zillion times this year and I’m still psyched to hear it.

  2. Greg says:

    Yes, it is indeed difficult to deny Adele…
