I especially enjoy listening to it while I write. Since Saturday was supposed to be devoted to writing like a motherf*cker I was in my glory. Here are a couple of tracks that made me dance as I typed:

I can’t find the studio version of “When I Fall…” on iTunes. I might have to acquire it by…Other means.

Its beauty and honesty makes me want to cry.
