TURN and the music people like
  • Robert Townsend: loves late '00s pop like demi lovato and kelly clarkson. his favorite song is "true love" by p!nk
  • Abe Woodhull: is "too cool" for mainstream pop. likes mumford and sons and benjamin francis leftwich
  • Ben Tallmadge: likes led zeppelin, eric clapton and the killers. really good at singing the killers for karaoke.
  • Caleb Brewster: listens to "25" at least three times a week while crying, staring at pictures of ben and eating ice cream. anna teases him for it all the time.
  • Anna Strong: is obsessed with halsey. OB-SESSED.
  • Mary Woodhull: likes birdy and rihanna
  • Abigail: still bitter that destiny's child broke up. pleasantly surprised by marina and the diamonds and carly rae jepsen.
  • George Washington: likes bluesy country - think southern gothic. has a gorgeous baritone singing voice.
  • Benedict Arnold: a washout who thinks he's hardcore because he listens to pierce the veil and evanescence.
  • John Andre: is a rock star everyone's in love with who says he doesn't have a favorite artist. his favorite is peggy shippen, whose father won't let her sign to a label.
  • Peggy Shippen: loves sia and ariana grande. is probably best friends with ariana grande and loves 50s/60s sounds.
  • Lafayette: FLORENCE + THE MACHINE is the queen of his soul
  • Richard Woodhull: the most passionate and awful bruce springsteen fan to ever grace the planet
  • Edmund Hewlett: likes just classical music. not baroque or romantic.
  • John Simcoe: 1D is secretly his fave but in public he tries to spit eminem raps and calls zayn a terrorist
  • Samuel Townsend: likes james taylor but plays barry white whenever his son is over JUST TO FUCK WITH HIM
  • Akinbode: likes kanye and nicki, but has probably called nicki a slut and drake a pussy. abigail has told him to tone down the toxic mascuinity around cicero.
  • Cicero: likes nicki and the les miserables soundtrack. will fight akinbode like the feminist cinnamon roll he is.
  • Nathaniel Sackett: somehow knows the lyrics to everything. frustrated that ben doesn't listen to anything past 2008.
  • Charles Lee: he thinks music is beneath him lmao

songs for relaxing mornings, warm blankets and cups of coffee or tea.
