2. A song you like with a number in the title

32 Flavours by Ani DiFranco.

Okay, let's be real here. "Someday you might find you're starving and eating all of the words you just said" is one of the most beautiful lyrics that has ever been written. I adore Ani DiFranco, and how she just is, you know? The way she just is the person she wants to be and casually gives a giant middle finger to anyone who tries to tell her otherwise. I would kill for that kind of honesty with myself.

I love that song. Definitely one of Ani's best.

It also makes me think of Sara Ellis, though more from a meta/outside the series point of view, if that makes sense. But:

And god help you if you are an ugly girl
Course too pretty is also your doom
'Cause everyone harbors a secret hatred
For the prettiest girl in the room
And god help you if you are a phoenix
And you dare to rise up from the ash
A thousand eyes will smolder with jealousy
While you are just flying past


makes me think of how she's treated in fandom.

How did I not know her? Oh man.

I agree with Veleda about this song and Sara.

Listening to "Not a pretty girl" now. Can I put it out like a poster to the world?
