Every time we cross the mountains here in Australia, I start singing this song to myself:
The Lucksmiths - Great Dividing Range
This is a marvelous piece of music sung by a powerful vocalist
Skunk Anansie - You Saved Me
And two songs from the Mountain Goats
The Mountain Goats - Woke Up New
The Mountain Goats - This Year
The last one is a wrenching piece about abusive situations, but so amazingly optimistic, I tear up each time I hear it.
