LIST OF SONGS I CONVINCED MY ADOLESCENT SELF I COULD RELATE TO

  1. Avril Lavigne's "I'm with you"
    the chorus of this song took place on the bridge next to Temple B'nai Abraham in suburban NJ
  2. Bowling for Soup's "Girl all the Bad Guys Want"
    because it was too tragic that I'll never know that he's the best that I'll never have and yes, i did hang these lyrics on the outside of my bedroom door.
  3. Eminem's "Mockingbird"
    "white boy" gives "jewish girl" confidence that she is tough enough to break that birdy's neck, a scenario that never came close to happening
  4. Jesse McCartney's "Beautiful Soul"
    because I sang it better than anyone else in bunk 11 so obviously he would have chosen me over that slut Caroline
