Music (A List of Favorites)

The other great love of my life (besides my kids & writing) is music. Music makes life better. It soothes the savage beast inside each of me and adds beauty to life. I have an extensive list of favorite songs including songs from several music genres; Pop, R&B, Gospel, Rock, Hip-Hop and Country.  When I was younger I watched MTV a lot (you know when MTV was actually music television) and was introduced to so many wonderful artists and equally wonderful songs. In no random order because I love them all equally:
