1. Miranda Lambert. "The House that Built Me."
I will admit that I am not a regular listener of music of the country variety, so it is strange for me to pick a country song FIRST, but these are in no particular order! I guess what I like so much about this song is that it can resonate with you even if you don't like country music! Everyone has a place that built them (or many places) and a few of us need some healing.
I like the tone in Beth Hart's voice and I particularly like the lyrics " I drank so hard the bottle ached." I don't drink, but I could!
3. Lea Michelle. (Glee) "Get it Right"
I watched Glee for a season - or maybe two and haven't watched it since, but I LOVE this original song written for the show and performed by Lea Michelle. Sometimes I wonder if I will ever get it right!
4. Ronan Keating "When you Say Nothing at All."
Nottinghill is one of my all time favorite movies. I LOVE this song :)
5. P!nk "Dear Mr President"
I imagine I could do a list just of the P!ink songs I like, but the message from this song has special meaning to me.
6. Outcast. "Hey Ya"
This was one of the first CD's Max used to love to listen to. There's a lot of explicit lyrics in songs by these guys!! I had to put it away.
7. GodSmack. "Voodoo"
I will admit that Godsmack is not a group I actually listen to, so how I came across this song I would be hard pressed to recall. In spite of that, I LOVE this song!
8. Hawksley Workman, "Smoke Baby"
If you have never listened to this song I challenge you to check it out and NOT get it stuck on your brain.
9. Mumford and Sons, "Little Lion Man"
10. Walk Off The Earth. "Somebody That I Used to Know."
I am not usually a fan of covers. This song is originally performed by Goyte, but I actually prefer this version, and the video they made brings a smile to my face.
11. Andrews Sisters. "Boogie Woggie Bugle Boy"
The Andrews Sisters are my guilty pleasure.
12. Christina Perry " Jar of Hearts"
I have someone I would like to dedicate this song to. If I ever see him again, which I likely won't.
13. KT Tunstall " Black Horse and a Cherry Tree"
If I play this song loudly I can get the boys doing some wicked air drums!
