The Music

Pink has some sick songs. I know I’m not supposed to like her, but I do.


Sex Pistols

Sea Change is an amazing breakup album. Just amazing. I heard it’s about his relationship with Winona Ryder. He said he couldn’t write about it for years afterwards because it still hurt too much. And when he was finally able to start expressing it, this is what he came up with.
