I decided last night I wanted to do a second poster to pair along side my XO poster. I thought perhaps since I started with a mushy hugs-n-kisses theme, the second in the series would be the opposite of mushy: heartbreak. If you've ever listened to Elliott Smith before, you know how he encompasses tragedy. I fittingly picked the song named "Waltz #2 (XO)." This song appeared in my music biography around 2004, when I was breaking up with my long-time boyfriend, Jonathan. I listened to the song again just to make sure it pulled on the heart strings a little bit. It did.
