“ease my soul” playlist

i created a playlist today that i call “ease my soul” and it is made up of some of my favorite songs that really soothe or inspire or liberate my soul!

i’ve included youtube links for as many songs as i could find. there are some pretty sweet live versions of things, so check them out!  there are also some REALLY LAME videos that people made about their moms, but they used the song i wanted.  so close your eyes and just listen.  🙂
