Friday Playlist: Teenage Fan Club

Boy bandddddz!!

Boy bands may not stay young (or together) forever, but our love for them never dies. These 13 songs—and the boys who performed them—will always be number one in our hearts.

Beatles fans, August 1965. Via the San Luis Obispo Tribune.

    Rookie does this thing where there has been something in my head that I needed but I didn’t know quite what, and then they come along and bring me exactly what I wanted without me even knowing what I wanted so they’re pretty much mind readers and this playlist is just what I needed and I’m not even making sense but okay this is amazing bye
