As they filled up their moving boxes to relocate to NPR's new offices, All Songs Considered hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton sent out a plea to listeners for the best songs about how to deal with change: breakups and letdowns, graduation, big moves, etc. You responded in huge numbers, and we picked a few standouts to play on this week's show. We've got classics from Led Zeppelin, The Animals and Neil Young and more modern favorites such as The White Stripes and Vic Chesnutt. Bob and Robin also welcomed some fellow NPR friends to share some of their favorite moving-on songs. All Songs Considered intern Lorie Liebig shared a heartbreaking cut from The Head and the Heart, Stephen Thompson brought us a sweet and soothing track from David Mead, and Daoud Tyler-Ameen kicked things up with "Following Through" from D.C.'s own The Dismemberment Plan.
