Matched - Play - Giveaway

I began this book yesterday. I have been hearing about it for a while now from articles in Entertainment Weekly (which I read every week). I decided I was ready for my next fiction book. I just finished the Hunger Games series and have read Twilight and Harry Potter...So, they say this is the next young adult series that will take the world by storm.
I read this section last night and I have not been able to stop thinking about it:

"The Society chose to keep the hundred best of everything when the culture became too cluttered: Hundred Songs, Hundred Paintings, Hundred Stories, Hundred Poems. The rest were eliminated. How can we appreciate anything fully when overwhelmed with too much?"

I have been thinking all day. If we had to pick 100 songs, 100 Paintings, 100 stories and 100 poems, how would we decide....So this is the fun part. I am challenging you to comment on this post.

Which songs, painting (pieces of art), stories, and poems would you choose to be in the 100 that we keep?

I want to focus in on the songs because I would like to make a playlist according to my readers.
Once you have submitted a total 100 songs, I will make a "the Last 100 songs" album.
I will that have a drawing based off the people who comment with answers on this post and the winner will receive a brilliant and crafty "Last 100 songs" album in the mail!

I will start with 2 of the songs I hear and want to hear again.
-The Scientist - Coldplay
-With Everything - Hillsong United

Even though I'm married to an artist I'm not very creative on what to save...maybe something by Banksy, something by Andy Warhol, and something by Michelangelo or Di Vinci. As for poems and stories; stuff from Shakespeare, Amena Brown, Edgar Allen Poe, and Mark Twain...
As for songs, Strange Currencies by REM, Ten Thousand Angels by Derek Webb, Delicate by Damien Rice...wow, this is harder then I thought...and apparently I love slow sad songs...Signed, Sealed, Delivered by Stevie Wonder, Groove Me by King Floyd, The Cave by Mumford and Sons, and I Cannot Hide My Love by The Second Circle.
That is not even close to a complete list, but it'll do for now.

1. Jah Bless Me- Jah Cure (Free Jah Cure Album)

2. Live & Love Life-Etana (The Strong One Album)*Anything of Etana is amazing!

3. Give It All You Got -Beres Hammond (A Moment In Time Album)*Everything Beres is amazing :)

4. Three Little Birds-Bob Marley (b/c my girls love this one although he has a ton that are good!

5.She's Royal-Taurus Riley (Parables Album)

6. What a Day-Tanya Stephens (Gangsta Blues Album)

7. Slowly but Surely-Wayne Wonder *Our first dance at the wedding :)

8. I Love You Too-Ziggy Marley (Family Time Album)* Our new baby boy is going to be born to this one in the OR this April!!

9. One More Night-Busy Signal (D.O.B. Album)

10. If a Neva God-Beenie Man (Back To Basics Album)

These are my top 10 in the 100 list that I'd start! Someone once said "reggae is the heatbeat of the people" I'd have to agree... Music isn't the same without a reggae song or two..if none of them make it on your album hopfully you may have time to look them up & enjoy them as much as I do!!!

Crazy Train - Ozzy

Hey Sarah! So I was thinking about some of my favorite songs which include...

•About to Fall – The Wrecking
•Freedom – Run Kid Run
•Our God – Chris Tomlin
•Beautiful Disaster – John McLaughlin
•When the Water’s Rise – Casey Darnell
•How He Loves – David Crowder
•What Love Really Means – JJ Heller

And if I had to pick my absolute favorite it would be such a hand choice but I think I would have to say Our God by Chris Tomlin just because of the awesome power and meaning within the song and the first time we sang it at Big Stuf it was just such an amazing and powerful song I fell in love with it :)
