A cute and sweet ukulele opening describes the joys of young life only to transform into today’s reality of your childhood best friend who you thought that you’d be with has met someone else and you have to watch them from the backseat.
9. “13 Missed Calls” – Zach Hood
A haunting pop track has a simple beat but has an intriguing story that talks of finally letting go of someone toxic, only to have them calling you incessantly to start the drama all over again.
10. “He Said She Said” – CHVRCHES
Strong-willed synth-pop at its finest. The story of this track is all about the difficulty of juggling society’s hypocritical expectations of us.
