You Tube: Favorite songs

Oh crap, that isn't all for now, lol. I forgot about Missy Higgins! She's a multi-award winning singer down in Australia, and she is currently touring the US, trying to spread her music here. I started listening to her a few weeks before her debut album, The Sound of White came out. I used to play an online game called PlanetSide with a cousin of hers. Yes, it really was her cousin, because I asked her later that year the first time I saw her live in Philly. I've since seen her four times total as she hasn't come to US often. Her second album, On A Clear Night came out about a year ago.

Keep in mind I rarely listen to this type of music. I find her voice very refreshing. With that said, here are a couple of her hits:

And now, on a completely unrelated note, I give you one of the greatest songs made for a video game, as sung by Rikki Nakano:

I would kill to see Final Fantasy music live in concert. /drool
 
I love that song, but the animation is disturbing. I like the music video versions better.
