For my birthday, my human made me a mix tape. So I would always think of her when I listened to it, all the songs have her name in them. Having such a common girl’s name, it seems, is both a blessing and a curse when you look at the songs out there. Some of these are incredible. Others: ouch. Glad it’s not me.
