Songs That Make Me Think of My Boyfriend

  1. Ballad Of A Teenage Queen by Johnny Cash
    When we first started dating, he worked in an ice cream parlor. I have golden hair and eyes of blue. It just works.
  2. Piazza, New York Catcher by Belle and Sebastian
    This song reminded me of him long before he was even aware of it. Now, he'll play it for me when I least expect it. It's so calming and sweet.
  3. Uptown Funk feat. Bruno Mars by Mark Ronson
    The first time we heard this song, we watched the music video together over and over again for a week.
  4. Cleanin' Out My Closet by Eminem
    We rap it. We sing it. We analyze it.
  5. Someone Like You by Adele
    As we made our way across the state with all of our belongings in a moving truck, we blared this song (we actually blared the whole album but that's another list) and looked over at each other in disbelief at how powerful it felt.
  6. Love Love Love by Of Monsters and Men
    The melody of this song makes me think of him more than the actual lyrics do but the lyrics are just as fitting.
  7. Somebody That I Used To Know feat. Kimbra by Gotye
    This song takes me back to when we first moved to a new city. We were living in a shitty apartment right on the beach and we would spend our days off driving around together with the windows down listening to this song because at the time, it played on every radio station ten times an hour.
  8. Big Poppa by The Notorious B.I.G.
    He's been singing this to me since the day I met him. For the record, I have not, nor will I ever call him "Big Poppa."
  9. The Woman With You by Kenny Chesney
    Brings me to happy tears every time.
  10. Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie by Jay & The Techniques
    We dance around in the kitchen to this song every year on Thanksgiving.
  11. Time After Time by She & Him
    This is one of the sweetest love songs I've ever heard and I smile warmly and reflect on our relationship every time I hear it.
  12. 400 Lux by Lorde
    Every line of this song makes me think of our late night conversations riding around in his car mocking rows of identical houses.
  13. Knock Three Times by Tony Orlando & Dawn
    Once, we were riding in a tow truck after an incredibly stressful day when the tow truck driver asked us how we met. We told him the story of the apartments we grew up in and how I was on the bottom floor and he was on the top floor. The tow truck driver played this song for us and we've loved it since.
  14. Short Skirt/Long Jacket by Cake
    He told me forever ago that this song reminds him of me. Now I can't hear it without thinking of him.
  15. I Will Follow You Into The Dark by Death Cab for Cutie
    Our song. Always.
