“Falling Slowly” from the movie Once is just one of those mellow, melancholy songs I can listen to on repeat. Perfect for a rainy day.

It all started with a mouse, and an adorable one at that. (Side note: did anyone else see lots of Minnie Mouses this Halloween? Just me?)

So now’s a good time to know that I love Duffy. She’s adorable and she writes most of her own songs. Plus, she has the whole retro thing going on. My favorite.

Ah, Katy Perry. Completely unapologetic about being manufactured bubblegum pop. And that’s why I  can’t help but love her. That, and she’s cute and her songs are catchy.

The next season of Gossip Girl premieres on my birthday. I hope that’s a good sign. I hope Paris helps revive the show- it’s been getting stale.
