#BloggingChallenge Day 7: My favourite songs

First, before I list my favourite songs, allow me to share a poem I wrote about music some years ago. It sums up my sentiments about music, which I think of as the food of the soul.

Le Musique!

The musician
Tugs the strings of my heart
As he strums the guitar
And caresses my ears
With the saxophone
While stirring my being
With the drum
And soothing my soul
With his voice.

Such joyous sounds
Creating beautiful medleys
That awaken
Countless memories
Tinged with regrets
Endless hopes
For better things to come
Diverse sentiments
About people, places and things
What more can a woman ask?
