So, what are some of your favorite songs that you'd like others to know about? It doesn't have to be obscure music (none in my list are) but posting very well known popular music might be redundant.


If possible, please provide a youtube link to them for others to enjoy.


A few of mine:

I went to my YouTube account to link a song and see a red X by the speaker icon. ALL my YouTube bookmarks have the same, no sound. I also clicked on the links in the original post with the same result. Anyone else have or know of this issue? Says my account is in good standing...

Sarah Fimm - Mercury (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWNJ5HFq3gc) (ambient-ish, with vocals)
Iron & Wine - Woman King (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8obrc0eA6gk) (indie folk)
Dessa - Mineshaft II (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vt6KS8bCPIc) (hip hop)
Wye Oak - Mary is Mary (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brpUYfnWlwI) (shoegaze)

Give Dessa a shot, in particular. Even if you don't like rap. It's a very emotional song.
