In a world taken over by dubstep, one can only wonder if the written lyric will soon be passé. I'd like to think not, being one who cherishes lyrics as one of the only thriving forms of poetry still in existence. When paid attention to, lyrics can surprise you with unsuspected humor, wit, or depth as well as--forgive me for being corny in this moment--resonating with your own life. Here I've compiled the soundtrack to my summer--or at least the start of it. There's something in here for just about everyone, so enjoy!
