There are a lot of songs that remind me of being a little kid, or just things that I did a few summers ago. These are the songs that will always make me happy to be where I am with whoever I'm there with.

It's in alphabetical order by artist.

The Days Of The Phoenix
This song reminds me of being 13 years old and hanging around with Lyndie before she moved to Virginia. That year was pretty much the start of everything. I can't believe it was that long ago.

Alice's Restaurant Massacree
When I was a little girl, my mom played this song for my brother and I. This is the first time I understood how wonderful folk music really is.

In This Diary
Remember summer 2003? I certainly do. It changed my life. Maybe not the song, but everything I did. This was just playing in the background the entire time.

A New England
...and Life's a Riot With Spy vs. Spy in it's entirity. Crunchy guitar, mediocrity...amazing. My whole family loves this and none of us could really say why. This album is one of the ways that I bonded with my brother in the last few months before he went off to college.

Girl from the North Country
The first time I heard this song I nearly melted. I couldn't believe I had never heard this before. I was on the way home from Virginia with my mom and we were both pretty much shocked and amazed. After that, I proceeded to listen to it every single day for the next year.

Three Little Birds
I used to sing this to myself at night when I couldn't sleep. It makes me feel like every little thing really is going to be alright.

Born Free
This is the first Bouncing Souls song I ever heard, thanks to Warped Tour '03. It just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It reminds me of Lyndie's last summer in New England and the whole beginning of my Bouncing Souls obsession.

Late Bloomer
"I'm no good, you're no better." In general, that's how I feel about myself and everyone. Thank you Bouncing Souls for giving me a simple way to say it. As far as the rest of the song...I think it's perfect.

Poison Oak
Conor Oberst...I'm jealous of you. The writing in this song is incredible. The "yellow bird" line is my mom's favorite. I like, "I'm drunk as hell on a piano bench." Either way, I like it all. This song reminds me of my mom. She wants to get a yellow bird tattooed onto her and I want a matching one. This song reminds me of driving around in the rain last year and wishing we could move out of this shithole town.

Straight to Hell
When I was a really little girl, my mom bought me Combat Rock and told me it was the best album I would hear for a long time. She was right. It completely changed the way I looked at music. It changed everything. I like this particular song because it always reminds me of singing with my brother in my grandmother's kitchen.

Wrong 'Em Boyo
"Mom, what is that wonderful sound! Saxophone!?" Yes, this song is why I love ska and any form of music with weird instruments and interesting horn parts.

Delirium Trigger
Bus rides in eighth grade were Hell without this song.

I'm Shipping Up to Boston
Sure, it's corny and dramatic, but any kid from Massachusetts can look past that and think about when they'll be shipping up to Boston. I can't wait.

Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt. 1
Yes, I sing this with my mom all the time. I'll always think of her when I hear, "She's a blackbelt in karate."

The Likes Of You Again
After my grandfather died, my mom and I couldn't listen to this song for weeks. It used to make me cry, now I listen to it and remember all of the things he did and all of the things we did with him and it makes me happy that I was lucky enough to have such a positive experience with my family.

What's Left of the Flag
...along with every other Flogging Molly song. Whenever I can't think of something to listen to, I put this on and I am happy.

It's because of my mom that I love music so much. This is just one of those songs that we've always loved.

Friend of the Devil
When my mom used to clean the house, she'd put this tape on and turn it up all the way. My brother and I would jump on the bed and yell. I'll never forget it.

Dancing In The Moonlight
This is the ultimate feel good music. Everything is in just the right place. Molly agrees!

Black Cadillacs
Two summers ago, running around this shitty little town with Tim and thinking it could never get any better than that. I will always remember that summer as the year I realized that I can be happy in any situation I want to be.

Gravity Rides Everything
Gateway To Rock...remember that? Concerts at the VFW when I still had a ska band and no one hated anyone because we were all just a bunch of hippies with nothing better to do. Now everyone's away at school, but I can still sit back and think about barefoot soccer and folk music on an outdoor stage. "It all will fall, fall right into place."

Why Don't You Find Out for Yourself
Drama! Oh yes, I love this song and I love my mother for loving this song just as much as I do. That's just the way it goes.

Don't Look Back in Anger
Two years ago? Something like that. We were driving to Virginia and something changed. I couldn't tell you what, but all of the sudden I was never unhappy without good reason again and I was listening to this song when I realized.

You're So Damn Hot
Oh Lizza, remember you're 16th birthday party? We were snowboarding and I had this song stuck in my head the whole time. What was that, three years ago? Almost four. I can't believe you're going to be 20 soon.

The District Sleeps Alone Tonight
Every time I go on a road trip, I listen to this at four in the morning when we're driving out of town and the sun is just rising. There's something about being alone on the road and listening to this song that just makes me feel like nothing could go wrong.

Journey to the End of the East Bay
This might be my favorite song. This was the first punk band I ever really knew about, thanks to Emma. Zeely got this CD for me for my 12th birthday. Holy shit.

Pink Bullets
Break-up song? Maybe, but I got over it pretty quick. It reminds me of good times anyway.

There Is a Light That Never Goes Out
This is the best love song I've ever heard. I got the CD in Boston and listened to it all the way home. Not that it's a long ride, but it was nice anyway. I'm obsessed with The Smiths and Morrissey...this pretty much got that started.

Don't Take Me for Granted
This song reminds me of Lyndie. We went to see Social Distortion in Norfolk, VA and I met the guy from the Street Dogs not knowing who he was at the time. It was amazing. We also stayed in this incredible old hotel.

In Defense of Dorchester
I love this band. I've seen them four times. My dad is from Dorchester so this will always remind me of him. He might hate it but no matter what he does, he'll always have that place inside of him. He can't drop the Dorchester attitude and I like that about him. It makes me feel safe.

Singing Sublime songs with my mom and Tim...slacking off...being careless...yeah, I love life.

The Logical Song
I've known this song pretty much forever. I never get sick of it.

Oi To The World
I love singing along to punk rock mixtapes in the car with my mom. This is our favorite. If you ever hear two assholes screaming this with the windows opened on the highway, that's us.
