    I did a post like this today too! Ray LaMontagne is the only artist we had in common, but I love so many of the songs you included! Right now, I think All of Me by John Legend is just the greatest thing, but there are so many beautiful lyrics out there <3

      Great minds think alike! I love your post too – especially your inclusion of “All My Life” – that takes me right back to middle school, and I still totally love that song.
