My current top five favourite songs, in no particular order:
1. I Cant Stop Loving You Don Gibson
"The quintessential love song."
2. Round Midnight Thelonius Monk
"A dark, haunting sound for the late, intimate hours."
3. Death KISS
"Every musician has used these lyrics at sometime or another."
4. None of Us Are Free Solomon Burke
"A cynical song that probably has been true since the beginning of time."
5. Mona Lisa - as sung by Nat King Cole
"A voice smoother than silk that tells a story with every song."
