hey all!
I have this list of songs for a lyrical piece... lots of them won't really work all that well but I just love them so much. If ya'll could help me decide which one to use or at least narrow it down that would be great!

Raindrops - Regina Spektor
I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Ove You- Collin Hay
Dear Old Friend - Patty Griffin
Hurt - Johnny Cahs
Down To the River to Pray - Allison Krauss
Landslide - Ari Hest
Samson - Regina Spektor
River - Joni Mitchell
Dream Big - Ryan Shupe
Nothing Matters When We're Dancing - Magnetic Fields
For Baby- Peter Paul and Mary
Baraka - STS9
Castles - Doveman
City - Sara Bareilles
Bendita La Luz - Mana
La Valse d' Amelie - Yann Tiersen
As I lay Me Down - I don't know who sings this

I Know it's a long list! Sorry! My favorites right now are Castles, Amelie, Samson and Dear Old Friend.

Thanks!
Smiles
Meg

I LOVE Hurt by Cash. And Landslide too, both the original and remakes. You can actually find a version of Landslide with Stevie Nicks and the Dixie Chicks and it's pretty amazing. From an awards show a few years ago, but I can't remember which.

Good luck!

I think it really depends on what kind of feeling you are trying to convey. I really love Samson by Regina Spektor. Try improving to a few of your favorites and see which ones draw the most emotion.

My favourite song on the list is Landslide. It would make a great Lyrical piece. Down in the River to Pray is also a good choice.

I love Raindrops. While I think Hurt and Landslide are both lovely, I feel they're overdone.
