The Five Songs That Inspire Me

The Wedding I sang ‘In My Life’

These songs pull at my heartstrings and have changed my life

The BeatlesIn My Life

This reflective song about losing loved ones and friends take on a new meaning when you lose enough people.  The whole somber romantic song is a tribute to ones we had to say goodbye to.

I sang this song at my daughter’s wedding after she had lost her father a few months before.   It was amazing that I didn’t crack.

Jimi Hendrix:  Purple Haze

I remember coming home from school on days I didn’t have rehearsal, and sitting on the floor, closing my eyes and just getting lost in the magic of his powerful imagery. Jimi had a big impact on music, I speak of him the first sense because I don’t think of him as gone.

Randy Newman: Real Emotional Girl

I heard Linda Ronstadt sing this in the 80’s, and was mesmerized.  I still am, when I watch it. It is a story and emotional ride of a young girl’s heart.  It is fragile and haunting, and a singer’s dream. A wonderful audition song as well.

Michael Jackson: Man in the Mirror

I knew this was not written by Michael, however, the song is magically produced and floors me every time. It is about hope and change, and peace that will never come, but he is hopeful and optimistic.  It just gets to me. I never tire of it.

Joni Mitchell: Cactus Tree

I just go crazy when I hear this song.  I have to go off and listen, I cannot speak over it.  When I heard it in a Diane Lane film, ‘A Walk on the Moon’, about 1969. it was truly breathtaking!!!! Joni has poetic powerful songs, and I love all of them.
