Why this list?
"Narrowing a list of songs that inspire me down to just 10 was so hard! There's a magic to music: it enchants people–makes you feel something, think something, move your body. Melody travels fast and far and penetrates deeply; when its lyrics have a strong message, it is ever-more empowering & enchanting. These songs are powerful in their richness of sound, heart, and meaning." - rel
