Betty Who – Somebody Loves You

You know that feeling you get after searching the Internet for hours-upon-hours and finally coming across that one perfect song? Well, this song gave me that magical feeling. It’s bubbly and quasi danceable while still asking the most important question of them all, “who’s around when you can’t be strong?” The answer? Mint chocolate chip ice cream.
