  1. Interesting that you went with the Buckley version.

  2. I like a lot of these, but Breathe by Anna Nalick is one I've always loved!

  3. I can't NOT dance when I hear I don't feel like dancin' by the Scissor Sisters.
    I despise Kate Bush's voice. Sorry.
    One time, long ago, I made a list of my top 25 songs. Never Surrender was in that list. It is still on my work playlist, so I hear it 2-3 times a day.
