    Damn Diana, can we just make Little Mix happen in the US already?!

    Facebook: pg

    This song is the only reason I would ever move to Chicago... just so I could listen to it and be like "oh tru."

    "I love you, even though I don't like you right now." - A lyric from this song and my mantra.

    15. "Sugar" by City of the Sun

    This song would be on a modern day "Pure Moods" soundtrack and that's exactly why I love it.
