Special Songs…

A lot of the guys here can ignore this unless they are in touch with their feminine side!  I started compiling this a couple of months back.  I will do others as I find the time.  Most of these are songs from recent years.  I have not included major artists for the most part.  I went through almost 2000 songs, pared it down to 85 and could go no further then the final 40 (I had intended 20 songs to put on a cd for the car).

Basically these are quieter songs (there are exceptions) that have touched me in some way – either musically, lyrically or emotionally.  One song that everyone would like is Vindicated.  For whatever reason this song MAKES me sing it.  The chorus gets my body involved and I practically shout it.  I don’t expect everyone to bother finding the music.  If you are in the mood, go for it.

If you find something you like that you’ve never heard before then it’s worth it.  And if you don’t care, hey, that’s just fine too!
