One often wonders about the fate of those featured in pop songs—from Jenny and her ubiquitous phone number to "Darling Nikki"—but what about the muse behind an entire band itself? Not that long ago, the girlfriend of Passion Pit singer Michael Angelakos was the recipient of a Valentine's Day gift of music, which soon leaked out and found a receptive audience far larger than the couple could have ever imagined. Passion Pit the band was formed, an EP quickly released, and shortly after their Manners LP hit the internet, it was a hit. Now Angelakos's music stands on the forefront of dance pop, packing in mammoth crowds while never straying from their humble bedroom roots. After discovering Passion Pit's romantic origins, no girlfriend anywhere will accept a Valentine's Day gift of mere chocolate or flowers ever again. Thanks for ruining it for everyone, dude.
