Now Playing

I'm now playing...most of the same music I've been listening to for the last ten years or so. Maybe a little less.

I'm not very good at discovering new music. I just love the music I love, an awful lot.

So here are some songs I love the most. They seem to be tied together by lots of female voices, a sense of drama and story, and are either incredibly uplifting or heartbreaking and not much inbetween.

Maybe you'll discover something new from this list, or just fully realise how very not with it I am, and maybe you could recommend me some music I should listen to?
