* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Lights has a tendency to stick some pretty nice vocabulary words into her lyrics. There aren't many other pop singers out there who put words like "interim" and "trajectories" into the same song and actually make it work.

* {{Ear Worm}}: Many of her songs, particularly "Ice" and "Second Go."

to:

* {{Ear Worm}}: Many of her songs, particularly "Ice" and "Second Go."" "Siberia" and "Quiet" are also very easy to get repeating in your head.



* NarmCharm: It may be much more thoughtfully written than a lot of contemporary pop, but there's still a lot of lines that blur the divide of heartfelt and corny. She sings with the conviction to make it work, ad work it does.



* SweetDreamsFuel: Not all, but a good portion of her discography could qualify. Most of The Listening is sugar-baked poetry and is a delight to listen to. Later material is much darker, but still works.

* NoHitWonder: She's only had three singles that made it into the top 40 in Canada, and ''none'' elsewhere. This is despite having two gold albums and a large and devoted fanbase.

* {{Needs More Love}}: Especially in the United States, where other similar artists (not only other recent {{synthpop}} female contemporaries such as Music/{{Lady Gaga}}, [[{{Kesha}} Ke$ha]] and female-fronted duo {{La Roux}}, but also other young Canadian popstars such as Music/{{Justin Bieber}}) have found major mainstream success. (It's too early to tell if {{Americans Hate Tingle}} would apply to her, though

* TearJerker: The acoustic version of "Cactus In The Valley" will definitely induce a few tears.
