I can’t wait to share this awesome art with you! Please scroll down to enjoy these first additions to The Sweetest Art List!
The Sweetest Art List #1-#17
First, an original poem by me:
I Awoke in India, Bewildered
Whose soul is this,
swirling around me?
Whose song is this,
coming down on the wind?
Whose palm is this,
wrapped around me?
And now, the List:
#17–randomly missing Jeff Buckley: “Hallelujah” by Jeff Buckley, originally by Leonard Cohen
#16–sexy without losing the romance: “My Eyes” by Blake Shelton featuring Gwen Sebastian
#15–this song is so filled with story that it is really much better without the video, though the artistry in the video is fantastic: “Gravedigger” by Dave Matthews
#14–from the time when girl anthems were rare: “Silent All These Years” by Tori Amos
(released in North America in April 1992 by Atlantic Records on her debut studio album ‘Little Earthquakes’–try the official studio version on the album without any video first)
#13–Jeff Buckley said Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan had the voice of an angel. He was probably the greatest vocalist in the history of recorded music. I missed him in concert :(. I dreamed that I would see him live when I moved from Charleston, WV to Boston for college in 1996, but he died in the summer of ’97. Now added to the list: the works of Nusrat Fateh Ali Kahn
#12–I remember listening to this song on repeat while riding the T in Boston in the late 90’s: “In the Absence of Sun” by Duncan Sheik
#11–I am not putting this song up because of the times–I prefer to think of this classic as a personal story. The lyrics are sweet and will make your heart ache: “Nikita” by Elton John
#10–I always loved this cool song from early U2: “Trash, Trampoline, and the Party Girl” by U2
#09–better without the video but awesome all the same: “Summer Rain” by U2
#08–the: video for “Zombie” by the Cranberries
#07–May your day be truly blessed by this: “What Child Is This” by Andrea Bocelli featuring Mary J. Blige
#06–this song is beautiful: “My Lover’s Gone” by Dido
#05–1984: “Do They Know It’s Christmas” by Band Aid
#04–the: video for “We Were Us” by Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert
#03–always loved this song: “Somewhere With You” by Kenny Chesney
#02–Yes the VMA performance was crazy–but this is stunning!: Video of The Backyard Sessions with Miley Cyrus performing Dolly Parton’s “Jolene”
#01–Cool song–real art! Beautiful and mesmerizing!: “The Man Who Stole A Leopard” by Duran Duran
