Song Crack

There are songs that I can't get enough of.  Songs I could listen to over and over and over (and so on) without ever getting burned out.  The songs that you won't hear on the radio because they've been out for a long time.  Songs that a lot of people may not know or, adversely, think you're nuts for loving.



Annie Lennox - No More I Love You's
This is my weirdo song.  It's exceptionally weird/strange, and believe, me the video is stranger....but it's great for having one of those emotional hand-flinging Mariah Carey moments when you're trying to sing along.  (Nicki Minaj sampled this song for her song "Your Love".  She understands weird.)



Paula Abdul - Promise Of A New Day
I still remember being a kid and 'choreographing' dances to this song in the play room.  It's definitely on my iTunes & I'm not ashamed to admit it!




Dave Matthews Band - The Last Stop (Live In Chicago Version)
Completely different from the album version, this song is incredible!  Not only can you tell that the band loves playing this song but that Dave loves singing it.  It's beautiful.



No Doubt - New
This song makes my heart race.  I feel like I'm in the middle of an epic event that I don't want to end.  This feeling has got to stay.




Save Ferris - Come On Eileen
If this song doesn't make you want to be a mid-nineties Ska singer, then there's no hope for you.  I belt this mother out in the car, making my "big voice face" and everything.



Fleetwod Mac - Rhiannon
This song reminds me of a rainy day.  It's so mellow and haunting.  One of the best Fleetwood Mac songs in my opinion. 



Boyz II Men - On Bended Knee
If this song doesn't make you want to close your eyes & ball your fists up close to your chest while belting the woulds out intensely as possible, then there's something wrong with you.




Before I get carried away, I should probably cut myself off!  This is should probably be one of those "to be continued posts", otherwise we'll be here all day! 

What are YOUR "song crack" songs?
