30 Days of Songs: Day #12

Day 12: A song from your preteen years


What I can remember from my preteen years is listening to my mom’s burned CDs and Mixes. On one of the CDs was Death Cab For CutiesPLANS album. But i also found out that that band had a secondary band by the name The Postal Service. That is when I fell in love with this song…

The District Sleep’s Alone Tonight by The Postal Service.

I was so obsessed with this band! And as I listen to the song right now, through muscle memory I can sing all of it. On their Give Up album I pretty much know all of the songs. They’re an old band but I still love them. I think they were the first indie band that I really liked. This song brings back so many memories.

Another song that I forgot to mention is…

Marching Band of Manhattan by Death Cab for Cutie

This is a biggie. I totally forgot this song, this one really resonates with my preteen years. Of course it is a very sad song, with the lyrics “Your Love is gonna drown”. But the beginning of the song is just so great! I could not NOT include this one.


Give it a listen, give music a chance.
