|Finally, enough time to do this!

I've spent most of my day off organizing my comprehensive music collection and backing up my computer. Hence, it seems appropriate that I FINALLY do this music meme:|
"Comment to this post and I'll give you a letter. In your journal, list 10 of your favorite songs that begin with that letter. Then, offer to give letters to other folks, if you see fit."
The letter "L" was given to me by:
1. Lakini’s Juice—-Live
Talk about a great, rocking, meaningful song that reverberates through your very soul! (I was debating between this and Live's other beautiful L-song, 'Lightning Crashes').
2. Learnin’ to Fly—-Tom Petty
I've always loved this song, ever since I was a little kid. It always cheers me up and gives me hope.
3. Left Me For Dead—-Rob Dougan
Rob Dougan is the king of theatrical, dramatic singing, as this song clearly illustrates.
4. Lime-Tree Arbor—-Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
This one's beautiful and heartfelt, as Nick Cave's songs generally are.
5. Looking for My Life—-George Harrison
I used to identify so much with this song, to the point that whenever I heard it I would burst into tears. I felt so very understood by Mr. George Harrison, and when I hear it I still do.
6. Locomotive Breath—-Jethro Tull
This classic song is always fun.
7. Leave Me Alone—-The Cruxshadows
A classic song of teenage emotional angst. It's also a very talented Goth band (and one of my favorites), which makes it even better.
8. Lullaby—-The Cure
It started with L and it's not too bad of a song, lol.
9. Like a Rolling Stone—-Bob Dylan
I LOVE this song, if for nothing else than the wonderfully flowing lyrics. They're not even especially meaningful; they simply illustrate Bob Dylan's superb skill in weaving the cadence of his words perfectly into the music.
10. Love You Most of All—-Sam Cooke
It's a cute song and I absolutely love Sam Cooke. The voice, man, the VOICE!
I'm wishing a very Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it, and a Happy Day Off to the rest of us! Make the most of it, people, and that's a direct order!
