Help Me Choose My Songs! (Enriching the YOU)

A few years ago, around this time I believe (the pagan "new year"), I made a resolution to live my musical life more deeply. I've said before, music is such a strong part of my spiritual sense of Self; it's primordial to the core of ME. How sad that I would have let something so essential wane.

Last year I performed in public for the first time in years. It was scary and exhilarating and FUN. I was so fortunate to have such fabulous friends come out to support me.

It's time for me to suck in a deep breath and do it again.

Next Friday, November 8th, I'll be singing at JustUs! on Spring Garden between 7-8:30pm.

I have a confession though, I'm having a bit of trouble with my set list. It's just I have over 3 hours of songs in my repertoire... and I basically LOVE THEM ALL. (a bit of bias there). I just can't choose what to leave out and what to include. Weirdly, Andrew hasn't been that helpful... maybe it's because he's spent the last seven years listening to me sing...

That's where YOU come in. I need your help! Following are the list of songs that I'm considering. I would be ever so grateful if you would leave your top 5 (in order) that you would enjoy hearing in the comments section. Seriously, your input will help immensely!


(If you're in the 'fax next weekend, maybe you can pop in for your favourite song!)
