The Crystals - He Hit Me (And It Felt Like A Kiss)

Re: The Spiritualized Film Club

I just finished watching Pearl Jam Twenty. I remember falling in love with their song Even Flow as a youth even though I couldn't understand any of the words. Now I understand some of the words and I like the song even better for it. I was a bit of rebel in my somewhat conservative upbringing so I s...

Re: Pitchfork : Fiona Apple : WTF?
