*******The Misty Mountain Cold from the Hobbit (purrrrrrrrrr, Makes me think of my ancestors)

*** Muddy Waters by the Gospel Whiskey Runners (Hill billy and blues sounding)

*****crying wolf-le chant du Loup  by Enya (again because I”m partial *LOL* but Enya is probably the best singer in the world.  Blessed the Angelic voice)

* Drowned by Sorrows by Ian Siegal (blues)_DSC3176

*Goodbye Sad Eyes by the Record Company (reminds me of a local band I know.  Very good.)

** Desert Father by Josh Garrels

******Unsteady by X Ambassadors (another 6 stars.  It’s very very good.  I swear it was listed already but also could not find it.  This is another song that hits a nerve right now.  All I can think of when I hear this is screaming back “if you loved me, you would have done it.  So I have to go.” *pouts*)

*****Ballad of the Prodigal Son by Lincoln Hurham (Fantastic song.  Blues meets, southern comfort, meets gospel choir)
