    The Phil Collins songs "You'll be in My Heart"

    and "Father and Daughter" from the Wild Thornberrys instantly bring me to tears no matter where I am or what I'm doing. Who decided that was a good song to play while I am grocery shopping!!!?

    the Moody Blues, Forever Autumn.

    ah the memories it brings. The warm summer sun setting over the bay, the wafting aroma of a beach barbecue, the sounds of happy banter, the splash of the summer sea on the sandy shore. I'll never be able to listen to that song without falling in love with life itself all over...

    "blood Of Eden" By Peter Gabriel

    This song is so good and emotional. Everyone I've turned on to the song loves it. It is hard to talk or think while this song plays. I can't really explain it. I recommend it to all. If you don't connect to it you have no real emotions. Just my opinion. Listen to it and let me...
