I have a feeling this week's list could be "welcome songs"

Not sure, I thought that might be a bit obvious. I didn't want to pre-empt anything with this post but I would tip "songs about change" or some totally unrelated topic for next week.

Change would have been good, but it was the very first RR topic if I remember correctly.

nilpferd said...

Pity, I had some good ones lined up..

Great list, Nilpferd, I particularly and predictably loved the Roots and Orchestra Baobab, which was really beautiful.

Thanks SB! My daughter spent half a year as a three year old singing along to on verra ca, something about the lyric seemed to appeal to her.
