1. “Relator,” Pete Yorn & ScarJo
2. “Down South,” Tom Petty
3. “California,” Rogue Wave
4. “I and Love and You,” The Avett Brothers
5. “Paperweight,” Joshua Radin & Schuyler Fisk
6. “Come Pick Me Up,” Ryan Adams
7. “Skinny Love,” Bon Iver
8. “Say Yes,” Elliot Smith
9. “Somedays,” Regina Spektor
10. “La Cienega Just Smiled,” Ryan Adams
11. “The Rain,” The Swell Season
12. “For Real,” Okkervil River
13. “Winter Winds,” Mumford & Sons
