16. I Felt Your ShapeThe Microphones

These are the songs that make me play them again and again on repeat, and the songs that get stuck in my head more than any others from the K catalog (with the exception of the songs from my last playlist).  I just can't get enough of them.  I have sweet memories of seeing Mirah sing "The Garden" along with the rest of the audience in Denver when I had just started college, hearing "Moral of the Story" from a full Wolf Colonel band in a basement in Grand Junction when I was in high school, and sitting in a field at Helsing Junction the week that I moved to Olympia, where someone had requested "The Dragon Song" by Karl Blau (which he played), but afterwards finding out that they had actually meant to request "Before Telling Dragons."  I listened to it on the ride home that night and immediately fell in love.  These songs all just hit me where it counts.  Maybe you'll fall in love with one of them too.

Love, Sarah
