    The Deeper The Love

    Whitesnake's hit, The Deeper Love The Love... I melt every time I hear this song. A loving tribute to his girlfriend at the time, Tawny, in the video. But you can see it in his eyes, how he felt about her, watching her in the video. Course he isn't with her now, but when this...

    Pink Floyd Comes To Mind

    The best songs that tell a story are Pink Floyd songs. Actually, the whole record tells a continuing story. You can't just listen to once song you have to listen to the record beginning to end. My favorites are The Wall and the Dark Side of the Moon

    Devil

    The devil went down to Georgia. He was looking for a sole to steal. He was in a bind because he was way behind. He was looking to make a deal. Did you know Joseph Stalin was born in Georgia?

    The best song for this is concrete angel.

    It is about a girl who gets abused by her mother. And the neighbours boy knows... But by the time he found out, it was too late and she died. As sad as this is, I love the song. It's so magical and it makes me realise that my days aren't that bad!!
