6Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses
this song is so fun and it makes you want to get up and dance


This song reminds me of my boyfriend of 9 months almost. This is the first song he played me on his electric guitar. He went away to utah for like 3 months and I didn't have any contact with him. And every time I heard this song I thought of him. Then in November of last year he came back without warning. I love him so much can't even fathom being away from him anymore
catchy song, and if i hear my favorite song in the radio, tv or in other's mobile gadgets, it make me smile

26Ombra Mai Fu - Jackie Evancho
Not only does Jackie totally "kill" this song, but she sings so many others so well, that you cannot help but shed tears for the sheer beauty of her rendition. She has the most gloriously pure voice I have ever heard. Jackie is absolutely amazing - especially when you are sitting less than 4 feet away from her while she sings -! It is as if you just walked through Saint Peter's gates... And too, Jackie really is as beautiful as any angel you may imagine. Truly, she is well on her way to "drop-dead gorgeous." Gonna be many a young lad with a broken heart, crying for Jackie.
Jackie sings this delightfully.
