Music Monday: The Eclectic Mix

Good morning and happy Monday!
 (I mean Christmas is this week so it is a happy Monday, right?)

An artist, whether they create with their hands, brushes, the written word or through sound all try to capture life. Art has a great deal of fluidity, making it possible to appeal to so many of us. For me, the easiest art form to connect to is music. 

The way a song is written or composed can incorporate so many widespread emotions- happiness, anger, sadness- that it is nearly impossible not to find a piece that just gets you. Music really is a universal language we can all not only understand, but also feel.

And that's pretty powerful.

Today I bring you some of my favorite songs of the moment.
I've shared some other songs in the past as well which you can check out below:

I love the original version from Mercy Playground, but this cover is almost too good.
