I like how music moves people. I especially like when the words in a song mean something. John from Five for Fighting has a new cd, Slice. This cd hit the stores this week. This cd is filled with songs that have meaning. Stop and listen to the words and the messages on each song. My favorite song was Chances.
This video is on the VH1 Top 20 countdown. Thanks to One2One Network I was able to hear the songs on Slice before it hit stores.
This is the song list...
2. Note To The Unknown Soldier
5. This Dance
6. Above The Timberline
9. Story Of Your Life
10. Love Can't Change The Weather
11. Augie Nieto
