4. Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Fever To Tell
Original position on my Stylus ballot: #3
"The Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ party was where I fell in love. To be honest I was kind of drunk and the stuff we said to each other seems kind of incoherent and embarrassing when I tell friends. I remember us jumping around the room to this GREAT music that was chaotic yet had snap, making funny faces at each other and knocking over everything, wrestling and laughing. I don’t think I ever felt so impulsive, so alive, so intoxicated by another person. I don’t think it’s always going to be like this (first time I saw this girl I thought she was obnoxious and uninteresting—maybe she’ll seem like that again once she stops wanting to be around me) but damn if that night isn’t gonna be one of those amazing experiences that I look back on whenever I need to remember that I haven’t always felt alone.
