Good evening faithful readers. I hope you are ready for something of an emotional roller coaster. Music can be very powerful and used to portray, evoke, and capture a wide range of emotions and these songs & videos tend to do exactly that. We’ve got everything from the celebration of love, to the mourning of the loss of life, to the woes of heartbreak. You’ll smile, you’ll frown, heck – you may even shed a tear.
