8. MUSIC: Pitch Perfect: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. The film is the new Mean Girls, it’s everything you wanted Glee to be, and it will change your life. You’ll want to download the soundtrack the moment after seeing it.
7. MUSIC: Lightning, Matt and Kim. Available Oct. 2, Lightning is the fourth feel-good DIY album from the Brooklyn indie pop duo.
