Songs That Begin With...

Here's the infamous song meme where you comment and I give you a letter. Then you post five songs you love that begin with that letter. flourhurricane gave me the letter C.

01. Crazy by Ray LaMontagne
Don't get me wrong, I like the original 'Crazy', but Cee Lo Green sings it from the POV of someone who has recovered from a nervous breakdown. LaMontagne sings it like he is in THE MIDDLE of a breakdown and what a beautiful breakdown it is.

02. Crazy For You by Groove Armada
Another cover. This time, I'm not particularly fond of the original but I really love how Groove Armada have transformed it into a woozy, slightly drunk love song.

03. Come To My World by Santana
This is on the Ceremony album (remixes and rarities) and I always feel like it should have been released as a single. It's a bit like 'Smooth' but has more of a sensuous vibe.

04. California Dreaming by Bobby Womack
Such a good cover that half the time when I play it, people have no idea which song it is until the chorus kicks in.

05. The Cave by Mumford and Sons
This song is so inspirational. It has over 60 plays on my iTunes and many more on my iPod.
