Little Musgrave Songs that Move Powerfully (105* d) RE: Songs that Move Powerfully 16 Nov 05

Talking of Ewan MacColl, 'The Joy of Living' is both life-affirming and heartbreaking. For me, it's usually songs about resilience in the face of adversity that do it for me. Maggie Holland's 'Proper sort of Gardener has already been mentioned, but her song 'A Place Called England' is another one I struggle to sing without welling up. My friend Tracey Curtis has written a number of songs which move me, but 'Shellshocked' from her album 'If the Moon could talk' (UNLaBELLED 006) makes me weepy every time I hear it, and I tour with her frequently, and hear it a lot. I can also recommend Robb Johnson's song 'Undefeated'.
