15. The 6ths Featuring Katherine Whalen - You You You You You (by jove, I think she's smitten smitten smitten smitten smitten! But possibly also infatuated -- she says she's only met the person recently, and she might really creep them out with this song! She already wants to "choose the day" (to marry?!) It is quite pretty, though... aside from the "kinda creepy" angle.)
