  1. The Indigo Girls “Power of Two.” I’m not mad.

    FUN FACT: The first time I heard The Indigo Girls is when they played the house band at the bar in the extremely gay movie “Boys on the Side.” I was 15 and loved that movie so much and yet somehow I did not realize I was queer for another 3ish years.

  2. I got Power of Two (Indigo Girls) and realized the instrumental section sounded weirdly familiar… after some minutes of staring at the ceiling I have come to the conclusion that it is the same as the melody in the SNL neurotology song

  3. How did you know that my actual crush was “The surly goth girl with a heart of gold?”

    Most accurate quiz yet! Melissa Etheridge’s I’m the Only One, for sure. “You’re filled with fire, confidence and passion, and you probably have a bit of a temper. Not everyone can navigate the perilous waters of your ever-changing mood, so you need a lover who’s steady, patient and committed. Belt these lyrics when you’re feeling unappreciated: ‘But I’m the only one who’ll walk across the fire for you/ And I’m the only one who’ll drown in my desire for you/ It’s only fear that makes you run/ The demons that you’re hiding from/ When all your promises are gone/ I’m the only one.'”

  4. Ok witchery is afoot.

    “Hush Sweet Lover” k.d.lang

    Hopeless romantic. Check

    Longing, moping and occasionally sappy. Check

    Not everyone can handle your Big Feelings. CHECK (screams in soft-butch-emo).

    The only problem is, I can’t hold a note in a bushel basket. How could I possibly emulate k.d. ‘s dulcet tones ?
