Continuing with Nick's challenge (see post below this one)

Okay, I was going to do this in spaced out installments, but got carried away and picked more that represent attributes of my poems or myself as poet. Two up today. The last three up tomorrow.

Disillusionment



(Diamonds and Rust..Baez) I remember how moving this song was when I first heard it and it still gets to me until this day. One of the themes that runs through my poems is the falling in/falling out of love and the disillusionment that comes after more than one major love has passed by.

Intensity



(You're beautiful..James Blunt) When I first heard James Blunt sing, I had to buy his CD. The intensity of first times, be it love or anything else. It's a feeling we should never lose.

I've always loved Joan Baez, one of my favorite of hers.

Anyone have a tutorial
blurb on how to link the
youtube clips like that?

Yay, Joan! I'm a little over James, but that is a beautiful song.

Thanks for commenting, all of you. Jim, I emailed you directions for posting a youtube vid.

Hi Pris,

Sorry it took me so long, but I finally posted my songs at my blog. I just did links because I got carried away and listed eleven songs...
