On My iPod: Alexa Chung

The busy Brit's latest gig is cohosting Fuse News (Fuse, weeknights at 8 p.m.), where she delivers daily music-industry updates. Here's a taste of what the 29-year-old listens to when she's off the clock.

Patsy Cline ”She’s Got You”

”I think her voice is heartbreak personified. I actually can’t listen to this one without crying. Me and a couple of girlfriends recently agreed that this might be the ultimate sad song. We had a cry party!”

Pulp ”Something Changed”

”I listen to this in the bath a lot. I just love the storytelling. It starts like, ‘I wrote this song two hours before we met’ and [goes] from there. I think Jarvis [Cocker, below] is one of the most amazing lyricists of all time. I really enjoy that kind of British style of songwriting where there’s a sense of humor, but it’s also a bit tragic at the same time.”

Father John Misty ”Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings”

”My current obsession — I won’t stop banging on about them. This is the best song ever about shagging a girl in a cemetery. You know, classic case of grave sex!”

Blood Orange ”Bad Girls”

”I’m good friends with Dev Hynes, who’s killing it as a producer right now. I think he’s really clever, because he’s written this from the perspective of a girl. He’s really smart. He somehow knows how women think, and I don’t know how he does it.”

Maroon 5 ”One More Night”

”I never believed in ‘guilty pleasures’ before, but now I know why that was coined. What can I say? They’re, like, every hit on the charts. You can’t deny those melodies — it’s just good!”
