Current obsession..
"My iPhone. I just got one after five years of being a Blackberry user, and it has already become a body part. If it is not in my palm, my heart starts anxiously beating."

The one song I can listen to over and over and over is..
"Kid Cudi's 'Pursuit of Happiness,' and all subsequent iterations of it — most especially the Lissie version, and the Schoolboy Q version that samples the Lissie cover. It is literally my favorite song of all time, and Lissie brings it to a whole new level of amazingness.

Also, if I am allowed to blatantly disregard the 'one' part of this question, my other can-listen-to-it-over-and-overs are Erykah Badu's 'Bag Lady,' Wiz Khalifa's 'The Thrill' (and Empire of The Sun's original 'Walking On A Dream'), Warren G's 'Regulate,' Vampire Weekend's 'Diplomat's Son,' Two Door Cinema Club's 'You're Not Stubborn,' Discovery's 'Swing Tree,' Skee-Lo's 'I Wish,' Cold War Kids' 'Hospital Beds,' Crystal Castles' 'Empathy,' UGK's 'International Player's Anthem,' Prince's 'Kiss,' and the RAC remix of Chromeo's 'Bonafide Lovin'.' And Miley Cyrus' 'Party In The USA.' And Whitney Houston's 'How Will I Know.' #thisisimpossible"
