“One good thing about music, is when it hits you feel no pain. So hit me with music, hit me with music now yeah, hit me with music, brutalize me with music…”~Sublime/Bob Marley
Music is my drug. I am totally addicted to everything music has to offer. For as long as I can remember I have relied on music to aid and abed me in most everything I do. When I got married, I walked down the isle to Bob Marley. In my house, you are more than likely to hear some serious tuneage at an extremely high level, with my children dancing like crazy people, than to see say,all of us playing charades or like Pictionary or something mundane like that. My son doesn’t sing Twinkle,Twinkle Little Star, but if you ask him what his favorite song is he may tell you The Park (Linkin Park) , and both of my girls are aspiring singers..naturally. So because I want to share everything about myself, with everyone, I have put together a rather large playlist of my must have songs, in no particular order. These songs make me feel happy,sad,sexy,angry,etc. By no means what so ever are these my absolute favorite songs, and I say that because I have no favorites, I love each song individually. Yet I can guarantee you that if you take the time to listen to one or each of these songs, hear the lyrics, let the rhythm course through your veins, you will DEFINITELY want to smile and dance (I promise…I think). Enjoy!

If you made it all the way down here with me, I thank you, and I hope you enjoyed a very small glimpse (yes, really) of what I listen to on a daily basis. Music is my inspiration, my reason for being, and even if you’re not completely obsessed like me, everyone can appreciate a good tune!
Peace and Love,
