"Group Hug 2.0: Cry Baby Cry": THE WEEKEND MIX
First, thank you all for your suggestions. I have had a miserable two days of homework.
Before we get to this Weekend Mix, I wanted to get this out of the way as quickly as possible. Burning Wood quietly celebrated its 9th anniversary this month. I used to ask for contributions to help defray the cost of the membership to the site that stores all the music. I stopped doing that a few years back, as I never felt comfortable asking in the first place. But the site I have been using is safe and secure, with no ads or pop-ups. No one gets "webmugged," to quote a brilliant friend of mine. Well, this year's membership fees are due and I simply don't have it. So, come mid-October, all files will be unobtainable. There is a Paypal donation button about halfway down, on the left. If you feel like helping out, I will make it worth your while for another year. There, as always, is NO obligation.
Here are 18 songs that, according to some of you, have left you either in tears or some state of motionless other. I needed to edit a few selections out for time and space, as well as work with what I had on hand, which explains a few omissions. And I admit, I tossed in a few more of my own personal heartbreakers. But don't fret, at least some of what we have here should melt the icy veins of even the hardest of the hard.
