#FridayFive: Rilo Kiley Tracks

Rilo Kiley is one of those little, off-brand, Los Angeles bands that people either love or hate. I love them. The lyrics to my favorite song of theirs – A Better Son/Daughter – really, really hit home for me when I was dealing with the death of my mother.

Here are my five favorite Rilo Kiley songs:

  1. A Better Son/Daughter
  2. Spectacular Views
  3. 15
  4. The Frug
  5. Tie: The Angels Hung Around / Smoke Detector
