Music Monday Bonus: Connected Songs

There’s a recent theory that swept the internet that two popular songs by Robyn are from the same place at the same time from different perspectives, the ex-girlfriend and the new girlfriend.

I liked these two Rachel Potter songs even more if they’re from the same relationship. When it’s your first big love, you tend to get completely bowled over which means it hurts even more when it ends badly.

I’ll think about doing a full Music Monday about these sometime if I can find enough songs.
