Life's Soundtrack: Light

As I've watched your gorgeous "white" photos streaming into the Flickr group the past couple of weeks, I've started to notice something else they all have in common - they are full of gorgeous light.  I thought we use that light as the inspiration for our playlist this week.  Let's fill it with songs about light.  It can be the gorgeous morning light or the magical light of the moon.

I'll kick us off:

Priscilla Ahn - Leave the Light On
David Nail - Red Light
Mary Chapin Carpenter - Twilight
Sara Bareillies - Light
Owl City - Vanilla Twilight
Ellie Goulding - Lights
Allison Moorer - Light of a Clear Blue Morning (I have been searching for a youtube clip of this version of the Dolly Parton song for years and someone finally posted it.  This is probably the most played song on my iPod, if you listen to nothing else today, listen to it, the lyrics are so inspiring and her voice and the arrangement are perfection.) 

I had a hard time stopping - there are some GREAT songs out there on this theme and I can't wait to see what you come up with.  Take a minute and share some of your favorite "light" songs in the comments section and I'll put together a playlist with all of our songs on next week.
